Family & Maternity: Lacy Park

This maternity photography session at Lacy Park in San Marino was a heartwarming experience, capturing the anticipation and love as [Family L] embarked on their next chapter. Even with a touch of rain, the session had some beautiful candid moments that truly reflected the joy and connection within the family.

In every maternity session I capture, there’s a beautiful blend of moments that reflect the essence of family and the upcoming addition. I make sure to include heartwarming pictures with the whole family, showcasing the excitement and unity during this special time. Of course, we also focus on the parents-to-be, capturing their love and anticipation. It’s essential to highlight the mom individually, radiating her strength and beauty as she carries new life, and I capture those precious moments of mom with her other kids, symbolizing the love and connection that grows within the family.

This time is truly special, and the moments we’ve captured during this maternity session will be cherished for years to come. If you’d like to discuss more details or have any special requests, please feel free to message me anytime. Your story is my focus, and I can’t wait to bring it to life through precious images.

My love for photography started at an early age. A fun hobby eventually turned in to a passion when I found joy in taking candid photos of my friends. Naturally, my love for photography turned in to a lifestyle and I was asked to photograph people’s milestones and celebrations. And so, my photography business was born in 2010.
