Last year I collaborated with the ladies from The Central Coast Breastfeeding Coalition on a photo shoot for their current website. The pictures were to represent breastfeeding and motherhood. It was such a fun project to work on and I was so happy they asked me again this year. They are working on a new website and this year we included the entire family. Breastfeeding has been a huge part of my life and it feels so good to be able to document mothers and families in this beautiful setting. The Breastfeeding Coalition is an amazing organization that brings the community together in supporting moms. Be sure to check out their page for information and available resources.

I have been photographing these three since the youngest was a newborn. Now baby number three is about to arrive and I had the honor of documenting some pictures for this beautiful mama to remember her pregnancy. It was all a little last minute but it all worked out and it was so fun catching up. The gender of the baby is a surprise and I can not wait to hear the news. Either way it will be perfect. At the end of the session I snapped a few pictures of the girls playing in the park. They were having a blast. They are going to be the best big sisters.

I photographed this session in late July and in September I was able to do their newborn session. This mama was so easy and pleasent to work with. I had so much fun capturing her beauty. I am really looking forward to posting the newborn session soon.

I’m going a little out of order as I catch up on blogging but I just finished this session and thought it would be fun for this mama to see her pictures before she received the disc. It was not very long ago that I photographed her first pregnancy. It is always an honor when you get asked to photograph baby number two and beyond. Erin is a talented photographer and it has been so fun to watch her her little guy grow from a newborn. I can’t wait to meet her next little one. This session was at The Jim Greene Trail in Atascadero.

This session has been first on my list to share when my new blog design was finished. I been waiting anxiously to share a few of these images.  It seems like it has not been so long but it has already been four months since this little man made his arrival. Christy is a dear friend and seeing her transition into a mother as been beautiful to watch. She is such a good mama. She is so beautiful in these pictures, pregnancy suits her well. I have had the honor of documenting her growing family several other times so there will be much more of them on the blog.

Thirty six weeks and pregnant with twins! If anyone is up for the job it is these two. They are going to make the best parents and I am so excited for them. This session was a little last minute and I had my own kids in tow. Benny was content watching Beauty and the Beast inside while Juniper was on my hip, in the stroller, in the ergo or exploring nature. I was very happy with the results (considering I was juggling a baby) and I am excited that this beautiful couple will have some memories of this special time in their lives. Congrats you two! I can’t wait to meet the babies!

There are two babies in there!

What a fun session this was! The location was beautiful and the lighting as you can see was perfect. This family was so warm and welcoming I just did not want to stop taking pictures. I’m looking forward to the newborn session that could be any time now. I wonder if it will be a boy or girl??

I posted a preview of this session last week. I was able to get all the editing done rather quickly and put a slide show together for this soon to be family of three. I mentioned how wonderful this couple was and really they were the sweetest. They were so relaxed and casual in front of the camera. It was one of my favorite sessions and I love the lighting we had (the evening is the best time to photograph). Click here for the slide show.

This post started out as a preview but I could not narrow down just a few pictures and I still have more that I want to add tomorrow. This beautiful couple was beautiful both inside and out and I had so much fun during our session. It was so nice to get behind the camera with some beautiful lighting this evening.
They are expecting their first little girl this summer. Enjoy the preview!!
