sunset maternity session in la jolla | san diego maternity photographer

I swore last time I was here, in my dust-covered blog that is, that I would be better about posting and sharing sessions, but alas I lied. I’m a big fat liar. So here I am now centuries later finally posting to my blog again. So I’m going to think positive and believe in my heart of hearts that this is the beginning of a newfound commitment to sharing REGULARLY. But really I’m just going to celebrate this post as a win and not give myself too much shit if I don’t post again in the next several days. It is summer after all. We are in the middle of full-blown summer schedule around our house these days, which basically means that I’m up later than late (I’m already a ridiculous night owl, so summer really takes it to an all new level of crazy late) and everyone, except my incredibly hard-working husband, is sleeping in way too late in the mornings. But what are you going to do? Summer is fleeting, and I’m grateful for no alarm clocks and we are going to enjoy being late-sleeping slobs as long as we can. Now more importantly, this is a maternity session I had with a crazy beautiful, strong, moto friend and her family not toooooo terribly long ago in La Jolla. She’s pretty much a dream to photograph and we even brought their dog along this time. I say “this time” because I have photographed this family FIVE times. Although I haven’t shared session number five with anyone yet…shocker. These awesome human beings have been with me since the veeeeeery beginning. Since I was shooting with my little ol’ crop sensor (my beginner) camera, since I had really no business photographing other people’s milestones, since before I was even technically in business. I’m so beyond grateful for them, their trust and their friendship. They make something that I already love so &*%$! much (taking photos of course) even more ridiculously awesome.
