Maternity Session in Fresno, CA


Thankfully, this weekend didn’t go into the triple digits like last weekend! This mama has worked hard to keep her baby girl inside as long as possible and I didn’t want her getting too hot. Thankfully we got a “cool” 97* on Saturday night! As we walked through the San Joaquin River Parkway, we saw about 20+ rabbits hopping away! I’ve photographed there many times and had never seen so many! Everywhere we walked there was a little bunny hanging out in the flower beds or running for cover. So fun to see so many little cotton tails!

I was lucky enough to capture Atticus’s cake smash a few months ago! Mom told me she was newly pregnant then and as a Fresno maternity photographer, I was so honored she chose to come back to have me document her maternity photos. First, can we talk about Priscilla’s beautiful hair? So long, so thick, so gorgeous! She’s expecting a little girl and I can’t wait to see if she has lots of hair like her mama.

Dad, Richard, is always down for anything I ask him to do and is super chill. He just goes along with my ideas, plays with Atticus and snuggles right in whenever I ask him. Atticus is the best little dude and loves to explore and is a solid daddy’s boy. We worked hard to get a few sweet pics of him with mama, but he is a daddy’s dude through and through.

Maternity photography is always so much fun. So much anticipation for a new little babe. I especially like getting some images of just mom and dad loving on that belly, even if there are older children. Your bond is what created that little, almost ,baby and I want to document that for you!
