Bay Area – Halfmoon Bay | Maternity & Baby Photographer | Family Beach Photo Session

This adorable family is expecting baby number two. And that cute little guy was once a little newborn in my studio!! It’s amazing how fast the grow.

When you pre-book you newborn session (which is always important to insure a sport on my calendar) you receive 50% and maternity session package! This is a standing offer and not a short promotional offer. 

If you are interest in pre-booking a newborn session, booking a maternity session, or and questions about either click they contact button up on top of the page. (for mobile devices it is a different setup and viewing) 

Now (not about his lovely Mom on the beach, but for all of us Moms in general)… I know from experience as a Mom myself and from talking to so many other mothers that not all of us feel that we look the greatest during are pregnancy. But listen to me… You ARE beautiful! You spouse/partner thinks your beautiful and the child you are expecting will one day look back at your maternity photographs from when you were carrying them and they are NOT going to see any flaws that you see. They are going to see you.

Us women are our own worst critics. We put too much thought into everything and we find flaws with our appearance that either don’t exist, flaws our loved ones don’t notice, or that we are still beautiful anyways. Whether we are talking about a professional maternity session, a profession family session or everyday photos and home and family parties. Let’s be gentle with ourselves and remember that these photos are not really just for us and this is not really just all about us… WE are leaving a legacy. There will be a time when our children are older and these photos will be cherished dearly by them and our family.

Bay Area – Halfmoon Bay | Maternity & Baby Photographer | Beach Session – Maternity Gowns!!

This lovely Mom who is expecting baby number two had a maternity session at the beach which turned out to be a very foggy day. Seriously? Foggy! But we made the best of it and she rocked those gowns!! Way to go Mom! 🙂

I’m always asked if I have maternity gowns. I do. I have MANY. Let me describe the style of the three gowns lovely Mom is wearing below:

1) Royal Blue: This gown is beyond floor length and could blow in the wind (if there was wind, lol). It is not sheer. You can she that it has a split down the middle to show belly if desired. If you do no want to show your belly, you can hold it closed like in the photo of the red dress. If very modest, this royal blue dress can be turn around backwards leaving the split in the back and then I have MANY small claps that completely and quickly keep it closed as if it has no split at all. This gown also obviously has long sleeves. 🙂

2) Red: This dress is the exact same dress as the royal blue dress except in a different color. It is not sheer. But has one other difference besides color… with this red dress the long sleeves are not attached and can be removed to give you a strapless gown look if desired. Pretty cool! Two looks with one dress.

3) Pale Pink: This dress is beyond floor length. Has a split down the middle to show belly if desired and ties as a halter top (could also tie as a strapless, but looks better as a halter). I do have matching shorts for if you do want to have it opened more and try walking around poses. This dress is not sheer.

 

Maternity sessions are 50% off when you pre-book you newborn session. Pre-booking your newborn session is important to insure a sport on my calendar as I take a limited number of sessions. I book by due dates as a tentative date. Yes, I know that babies arrive whenever they are ready. Babies are best photographed when they are between 6-10 days old. Planning ahead and pre-booking your session is important and insures you a spot on my calendar for whenever your baby arrives.

Halfmoon Bay – Bay Area | Baby Photographer |Beach Photos & Great Ideas for Your Beach Trip

Here is a recent maternity & family session that took place at the beach. This sweet little girl and soon to be BIG SISTER was a blast to watch play around in the sand. That age group of big siblings from 12 months – 4 years is not really difficult to to photograph, but ALWAYS interesting. This soon-to-be BIG SIS did awesome! She smiled big for family/maternity photos, gave genuine big hugs and then played on the beach while her momma took solo maternity photos. I am so much looking forward to meeting their newest addition and am waiting for a phone call or text to be notified she has arrived!

** Quick note about maternity session packages: When pre-booking your newborn session package you can book any maternity session package for 50% off!

****  About the weather at beach session. The weather is unpredictable, but always beautiful. When having sessions at the beach 5% of the time we’ll get a sunny clear day. The remaining 95% of the time is split up between, partly cloudy days, fully cloudy days with gray skies, gray skies with light fog, gray skies with thick fog. I know often you hope for a sunny day, but this is something out of my control. I can tell you that regardless of the weather we are able to capture beautiful images! If you would like to look at more beach sessions so to the categories tab above (on the blue ribbon) and once it opens click of “beach”

 

Here are some tips & tricks for the beach and some of my favorite beach products:

**  Tip #1: You know how when leaving the beach you are covered in sand (especially are feet/legs). We try our best to wipe off with towels. I don’t know about you, but I still end up with sand in my car and taking some sand home. Here is my awesome tip to help with that… BABY POWDER! Take baby powder with you to the beach or leave it in your car. Before getting in your car rub baby powder on your hangs and legs (or wherever you have sand). The baby powder removes the moister from your skin and it’s that moister that keeps the sand sticking to you skin. I have found this to be awesome and now keep baby powder in my trunk for beach trips.

**  Favorite product #1: Beach umbrella/half dome type tent. I’m fair skinned with blue eyes. I burn easily and my eyes are very sensitive to the sun even on cloudy days. The sun causes me headaches. I also fine the tent to be a nice place for the family and kids to take a break and hide from the sun. Here is the link to the tent I bought and love ($41.99, free 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime)…

**  Helpful to know: I found the stakes that came with the tent to not be deep enough to help keep the tent in place with the beach wind, so I also bought this tent kit ($15.47, free 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime ):
