the little family

i first met erica at my daughter’s school. her adorable daughter is charlie’s friend and i have often seen them play together. they even talk about each other when they are at home, i learned. erica is such a beauty and i was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph her and her family. her two children are just darling, and her husband…well, you’ll see. they are such a beautiful bunch! this family is a photographer’s dream ~ so fun and natural in front of the camera, you’d would think they were models. anyway, i had a blast capturing their family. i don’t recall directing them at all, really. i just remember a lot of kissing and laughing. and oh, we had a little dance party in the middle of an open field. check them out…so adorable!

los angeles maternity photographer ~ chris and viviana

when i meet a couple that is expecting their first baby, i always get a little giddy because i know that they are in for the sweetest ride of their lives. i also love seeing how attentive and affectionate daddy is towards mama; just so so sweet. then there’s that excitement and anticipation that is absolutely contagious! and of course, mama-to-be is so radiant and full of beauty that i just want to photograph her all day!

viviana and chris were so natural and fun to photograph. they are so sweet with each other. and check out viviana’s dress..just beautiful! when i met her, i totally envisioned a dreamy, romantic, and sun-filled maternity session. so happy with the way it turned out! thank you for trusting me and being one of the sweetest couples ever! i am so happy for you both and cannot wait to meet your little girl in june!
