Maternity photoshoot at Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad

Josie and Dave were one of my first clients who have had me photograph some of the most important milestones of their new little family - baby announcement, baby gender reveal and of course, maternity.

We chose Leo Carrillo Ranch historic park in Carlsbad not just because it is a gorgeous property with peacock birds, woodsy rustic vibe and a super cute architecture (what a lovely venue overall!) but also because Josie was 38 weeks pregnant for this photoshoot and wasn’t feeling the most comfortable so we just picked the nearest park to their house and it was the best decision! I cannot believe how stunning this mama looked in her Mamabump dress. We had fun having Dave toss the gown train and run (according to Dave, he’d do anything to get out of being in pictures but this time it worked out for us), and even had a peacock photobomb one of the pictures.

Josie is an owner of San Diego mom blog , DIY Mom + Fashion + Lifestyle and she is all about good pictures, even in the middle of nausea, heartburn, insomnia and other fun experiences that come with pregnancy.

Coronado beach pregnancy announcement

Ana and Zak met while both of them were living in Japan and they couldn’t have found a better place than San Diego to raise their baby. I cannot wait to meet this couple again for Ana’s maternity session in January and then a newborn shoot in April, I am sure it is going to be a lot of fun with this couple!
