These two were expecting twins when we did the shoot.  And I was so thrilled when they made the trek down to San Diego to shoot with me!  Of course maternity shoots are not just all about the belly.  They’re so much more than that.  They’re about capturing this very special time in a couple’s relationship when they’re excited about what’s about to happen in their lives.   And I just love when a woman embraces the beauty of her body and her belly, and chooses to document it.  I never looked at pregnancy this way until I began photographing it.  Life is such a miracle!  I’ve had three children, and I am still in awe of what the human body can do.  It’s just beautiful!

When her hubby told me that he thought this shoot was more about her and her belly, I giggled.  He surprised me because he was such a natural in front of the camera and he really had this picture thing down.
