I feel like the luckiest guy in the world when great people ask me to photograph the most important memories of their lives (tear)! I got to photograph Ashley and Colin’s wedding a couple years ago and now they are expecting little baby Lucas and they asked me to photograph their maternity pictures at the beach! On top of that, her sister is due less than a month away from her and she also wanted photos. Ya all the cool kids are having babies apparently. Im gonna go have a talk with my wife after this, hahaha! Anyways back to the maternity photos.
We spent a couple hours in La Jolla at the beach capturing these shots. It was pretty dangerous. Well at least I was scared most of the session. I had my back to the water, laying down for one of the first shots and… Out of the corner of my eye there something huge and fast coming straight towards me. After realizing I had about $5k in equipment around my waist I jumped straight up and ran! I barely missed the wave. From then on I was pretty jumpy, and Colin was having fun just saying the words wave watch out! At the end of the day my jeans were soaked but the camera equipment wasn’t so I was happy!
It was so fun getting to see how excited they are to meet their new babies! I can remember wondering what he would look like, be like, sound like, etc. Its such an exciting time and you can see it on their faces.
