Mikaela's Family Maternity Session

I was SO excited to see the Landis family again! I first met them two years ago when Beckett was just a baby and have been so lucky to watch him grow up. That little baby I met way back when is now going to be a big brother in a few weeks and I was lucky enough to take maternity photos for Mikaela. We started out on the bluffs by the Ellwood Butterfly Preserve and from there went to Haskell's Beach by the Bacara Resort. I know I said it in my last post, but I have to say it again- I love how different every shoot turns out. The haze and mist that we had this shoot were just amazing and brought such a different quality to the light. I mean, look at the intensity of that sky towards the end. Blew me away! Mikaela's floral print dress photographed beautifully and it was nice to see something a little different. Beckett was more interested in playing in the sand and throwing rocks but we still got some adorable shots of the big-brother-to-be. I'm so happy for Mikaela, Joel and Beckett to welcome their little girl in a few weeks and can't wait to meet her! I know how loved Beckett is and know that Little Miss will have everyone wrapped around their fingers in no time!

Congratulations to you all <3
