Jessica + Frank // Los Angeles Maternity

It was a perfect Southern California day as Jessica & Frank walked hand-in-hand towards me. I had been looking forward to this session for sometime... When Jessica contacted me, right away I knew she was one of the sweetest girls. You know how with some people their personalities just radiate even through email, well yeah, that is Jessica. They are expecting a baby girl and I'm sure she will be gorgeous just like her mama.

This was my last session before officially going on maternity leave (bittersweet for sure), I'm scheduled to deliver my own baby girl next Saturday! Prayers are always appreciated.

Here are some of my favs from that afternoon.

With only a couple more weeks to go, doesn't she look Ah-mazing!!

Seriously Jessica, your beautiful inside & out!

Yup, they are in love!

Jessica owns Bourbon Street Boutique if you guys are ever in the Los Angeles 
area you should definitely stop by! Tons of goodies :)
I love everything about this one.. 
the way Frank is holding & looking at Jessica... 
and that light from the sunset!!

Best wishes Jessica + Frank! Will be praying everything goes smoothly in the remaining weeks & the new baby arrives happy and healthy. All the best, I'm really excited for you both :) 


Showering Baby "E" with Love

A couple weeks ago baby "E" & I were showered by some loving people in our lives. I'm so grateful for the family and friends I'm blessed to have. I love to keep celebrations small and that's exactly what we did. I wasn't really able to take many photos, though they were my intentions. Before the guest arrived I did shoot some detail shots of some of the decor & sweet goodies.


We played a word search game... and at the end we anonounced that our baby girls name was also in that search & our baby girls name was revealed! >> EDEN ELIANA << I love the sound to it & the meaning of course! That was a huge determining factor for us.. Eden is due to arrive September 14th, only a couple days away. Cant wait to meet our bundle of joy!!


Again huge thanks to all who shared this day with us. You all hold a special place in my heart!

Pacileo Family // Los Angeles Maternity

Maternity sessions have quickly become my favorite. It's a special time in a women's life and a must to get documented. I get teary-eyed just thinking about how the development of a baby is all a miracle. My pregnancy may or may not be contributing to these tears ;) Meet the Pacileo's, they are a military family who over the pass couple of months have had to be separated due to David's duties, but will soon be reunited for good just in time for baby AJ's grand entrance! David was visiting from Texas for the weekend so we decided to take advantage of that and here are some favorites from their session.

Malerie, seriously your glowing & look GORGEOUS!!!


 Precious Zoe gave me "the look" I LOVE it!!

And there's no denying it, she's definitely a Daddy's girl!

She's going to be an amazing big sister! I can just tell...

 These two <3

The light was pretty amazing!! 

Best wishes to the Pacileo's, cannot wait to meet little AJ <3 Thank you soo much for allowing me to capture these moments for you!
