Pasadena Maternity Photography

I really need to meet some more of my photography colleagues in the area.  So when Brian met Sarah, with Bright Waters Photography, I was anxious to meet her too.  Through our conversations, we realized we have sons about the same age and we are both expecting.  Sarah is due late July and I am due early August, so we arranged to do a photo swap for a family/maternity shoot before the babies come.  Brian and I did our photo shoot at the farmer’s market in Pasadena.  Check out the preview of our session on Sarah’s blog HERE.

So Sarah and I brainstormed locations for her shoot, and we ended up settling on her beautiful home.  I love shooting at clients’ homes because they are generally more comfortable and relaxed and it shows their personality.  Here is a sneak preview for you, Sarah:

Isn’t their son, Caiah, soooo cute?

And so are his parents: Sarah and Tim.

Sarah is one of those pregnant women that glows.  She is radiant and has so much energy.  How does she do it?

Sarah and Tim were so playful and loving.  I didn’t have to give them any direction on what to do.

I love these family ones on mom and dad’s bed.

After our photos at Sarah and Tim’s home, we headed to a nearby park for a few outdoors shots.  This bridge was so cool.  I just had to avoid showing the graffiti sections.

    Hi Amber, saw your comment on the MCP actions blog and clicked on over to check out your maternity shoot! Great job! I love the photojournalistic style and how you really captured the joy of a family right on the verge of welcoming their newest addition. I am a photographer out of Burbank and love getting the chance to see others’ work. Congrats! And congrats on the new little one on the way for you too!

    I also saw your comment on MCP and think these are great. I like a more natural photojournalistic style. It is timeless and you captured it perfectly!
