J proposed to M here last year, so it only made sense to capture their engagement session here. When they were met with a beautiful surprise the same time they had originally planned to get married at SF City Hall, they turned their engagement to a maternity session. Congratulations M + J!!
Moody days call for moody sessions. Karl the Fog made the perfect appearance for Jessica's maternity session. Originally from the East Bay, they escaped the sunny 90 degree weather for cool Pacific Northwest vibes. Congratulations Jessica and Aaron!
When your work wife is having her first baby, of course you have to celebrate! Carolina and I had worked together as interns, and then as full-time counselors. We shared stories of our boyfriends, and then of our engagements, and finally of our weddings. Though we laughed as she shared the realities of pregnancy and told it to me straight, it was a joy to get to witness these two as they became a family of 3. Congratulations Carolina and Matt - we can't wait to meet your precious baby!
P.S. I seem to be the animal whisperer at maternity sessions - last session we ran across deer, and this session we ran into Pippin the cat! What will it be next time...
Linda and Rej met years ago as the wingwoman and wingman for their respective friends - but as luck would have it, they found their match in each other! They were married in their hometown of San Jose and just celebrated the cutest baby shower at the parents' home just nearby Pinchetti Ranch Open Reserve. We took a short walk out and were greeted by a herd of deer - just the perfect setting for her maternity session!
