This beautiful friend of mine looks positively radiant at the beach for these maternity portraits. Baby number 2 has already made her debut (I am WAY behind on blogging and am just now getting these gorgeous images up!) and she is completely delicious!
This woman's smile is contagious. She has been my dear friend going on 22 years now (holy cow, are we THAT old?!) and she has always known how to make me laugh and has taught me how love fiercely. In high school we called her "Nanna" because she was always taking care of our group of friends. Thanks to Laguna Beach Photographer (and my hubby), Marvin Kimble, and these amazing maternity portraits I am instantly reminded of how much I love her!
I thought this natural backdrop was the perfect spot for a little "new baby" love and playtime with her first-born. Just another stunning shoot at our favorite Laguna Beach spot! That late summer - early autumn warmth really makes the colors pop. That brilliant blue sky and gorgeous south Orange County coastline never fails to bring a little magic to a maternity portrait. Just another day at the beach, right? At least the Chase-man thought so. He was all smiles and giggles. He made momma get her toes (and her dress!) wet and thoroughly enjoyed himself while Marvin followed him around with the camera.
We've loved photographing this family from the very beginning when we did the save-the-dates for their wedding (which included their first fur-baby, a chihuahua named Tank). We've also shot maternity portraits and newborn portraits of their first born, and family portraits when their oldest was just a year old! We're so happy for this sweet family and look forward to watching their kiddos grow.
