Katie's Maternity Session

I can't even begin to explain how excited I was to get to do another maternity session! It's been great meeting so many families this season, but maternity, fresh 48, and newborn photos have a special place in my heart! I looked forward to this session for quite a while! 

It was also special because Katie and I are due only a few days apart and it was fun to photograph another mommy to be who was in the same stage of pregnancy as myself. Katie and Eric were such good sports when the location we originally planned on didn't work out. A last minute change led us to the beautiful Ellwood Bluffs and butterfly preserve. It ended up being perfect because I haven't shot portraits in this area in quite a while and my photographer heart was so happy to be a different location! After the more woodsy look we moved up to Haskell's Beach for the sunset. We really got the best of Santa Barbara in these two locations. 

Katie is a stunning mommy to be and their little girl is already so loved by her parents! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this session, including getting thigh deep in the ocean because it was just that perfect. 

So thanks, Katie and Eric, for trusting me with your maternity photos! Enjoy some highlights!
