Beach Maternity Session

I had the pleasure of meeting Elisabeth a few years back at a mutual friend's wedding. Our husbands were both groomsmen and we sat with each other and chatted the night away. She is the sweetest, toughest, most driven mom-to-be I've gotten to work with. Not only was she pregnant, but she is in nursing school AND still teaching spin class! In fact, finals were right around her due date. How's that for inspiration? 

Elisabeth had a rough bout with melasma (or mask of pregnancy) that darkened her cheeks. I still wanted to make sure her gorgeous freckles shined through and didn't want the makeup to look too heavy, so with some concealer tricks and a fresh pop of blush I was still able to achieve a natural look.

Here are some of my favorites from Elisabeth and Jeff's sunset session with the always wonderful Megan Small Photography. 

Congratulations to the new mom and dad. Their little baby boy was just born last week!

Bohemian Redwood Maternity Styled Session- part 2

I finally had the chance to post my favorites from Hilary's styled session with Megan Small Photography


It's wonderful to see our vision come to life. Bonus - Hilary's maternity style was so comfy as well as fashionable! Looking back at these photos reminds me of a lovely afternoon spent with creative ladies and I can't wait to work with Megan again! 

Today's Trial

We got to meet the lovely Shannon today! Here are some photos from her trial - Jenn showed her three ways she could style her hair and create a really versatile way that Shannon could let her hair down for the reception. 


We went with a very natural look, clean and simple. Baby sister Kat even had a little touch up - I love her full eyebrows. Then Shannon was off to her bridal shower. We can't wait to see what hair style Shannon chooses for her wedding day!

Beautiful by the Bay

Bernice was kind enough to share these sweet images from her engagement session. Jenn and I met at Bernice's home where we spent the morning going over the details of her upcoming wedding. Sounds like it's going to be a lovely affair! Bernice requested a natural, glowing look with a wavy half up hairstyle. We love the beautiful San Francisco scenery in these photos, along with her beautiful blue dress. 

How happy they look! Thanks for sharing Bernice!
