The entire day of this session it was uncharacteristically cold and rainy for southern Ca, and for some reason my mood always manages to be reflected in my photo’s. I woke up in the morning craving a warm fire and a cup of coffee … and that is exactly how I spent the day until Katie and Shawn arrived at my studio for there maternity session.

Now I know I always tell everyone how much I love my clients … but I REALLY REALLY do. For instance … discovering that Katie is my long lost cat loving friend who might one day end up with 10 cats , how could I not instantly connect with her?! And even better… she actually liked the book I keep of cats wearing wigs and did not think I was odd for having it (Don’t judge – its awesome)…

Wait wait… she gets better …. its POURING RAIN, she is PREGNANT … and wait for it … wait for it …. Asks “can we do pictures outside in the rain too?” HECK YES! I LOVE when I have clients that embrace the shoot and go for it! I can not forget to mention she went barefoot in the rain, in the mud for some of these shoots – TOTAL dedication = happy photographer 🙂

I am so excited for these family of 2 (plus kitties) to become a human family of 3 🙂 One thing I know for certain – she will be the kind of mom that isn’t afraid of playing in the mud :)!!
