Roxy and Raymond, Malibu Beach Maternity Photos

I didn’t meet Roxy and Raymond in person until the day of the shoot, but instantly, they felt like friends. And they’re relationship was just so sweet to watch… Roxy has such a joy within her, a happiness that’s contagious—Raymond truly loves her so much and you can see it in the way he talks with her and admires her.

Their little boy is due in October and we’re already planning the newborn shoot! I can not wait! But until then, enjoy these sweet moments from a Sunday evening sunset on the Malibu coast.

Roxy loved her white flowy dress for the photos, she couldn’t help but play with that light gauzy material, and as her photographer, I was so happy too! It made for some dreamy captures!

Then just as the sun set behind the cliffs, Roxy changed into a second outfit for their last few photos.

Roxy and Raymond, thanks so much for choosing me! It was an honor to capture this special moment in your lives… I’m ever so looking forward to meeting baby Raymond in the coming months!

Amelia’s One Year Birthday Photos at the Beach

Little Miss Amelia turned one earlier this month! And for Mia’s birthday photos, we wanted to head down to the beach to take photos that we could use as decoration at her Under the Sea birthday party.

I know that she’s pointing at her grandma behind me, but I like to think she’s saying “I’m one!” (P.S. Thanks Grandma Kim for being THE BEST assistant ever!)

I love this girl’s smile! She just loves life, and is curious about everything! She has the heart for adventure!

Once we got closer to the beach itself, it was time for a wardrobe change! Rachel made Mia these adorable crowns for the photoshoot… she looks like a bohemian beach princess.

She really wasn’t too sure what to think of the sand… or the waves… or the water in general. Which led to lots of sweet moments with mommy.

I am showing you this cute little one from behind, not only to show off her standing by herself, and those chunky thighs of hers, but I am pretty sure she was screaming mad at us at this moment. 🙂

As the sun set, we took her up to the dry sand and just let her play. It didn’t take long for her curiosity to get the best of her and dig in.

 Oh Miss Mia, thank you for always being so full of surprises and keeping us on our toes. After forcing you to take a bath outside, you would have thought we had learned our lesson. Thank you for being you, your feisty, sweet, adventurous, you.
