As I promised in my last post, photos of this pretty portrait session are now here! It was such a wacky day of weather with the sun fading in and out of the clouds. We could also see an impending storm drifting toward us in the distance. Even though I'm now spoiled by always perfect SoCal weather, I'll never forget growing up in the land of four seasons (north carolina) where hurricanes never stopped anyone from driving to the grocery store, or going out to walk their dog. So, when the rain was fast approaching and possibly about to ruin our photo session, I did not panic. I simply made sure we maximized our time while the weather was still great, albeit overcast and temperamental. In fact, our photos turned out rather beautifully thanks to a beautiful couple and an amazing sky. We were so blessed that the rain came much later! It was a perfect day photographing the rare cherry blossoms in the San Fernando Valley.
This photo session was very dear to me as I helped a friend document her time being pregnant and what it felt like. Her son was born only one month after this shoot. I knew she was going to be a great mother. We shot this in my home, it was very intimate, minimalistic, but with a lot of heart poured into it. I hope one day Owen can look at these photos and know that he was fully loved even before he was born.
