“My husband and I really wanted to celebrate and capture this beautiful time in our lives with photos. We are definitely not great at documenting moments in our lives, but we knew just how important this time was and wanted a way to hold on to it forever. While I wish we could somehow bottle up the experience of pregnancy – every beautiful sensation of a kick or roll, or even the different feelings or emotions of growing a baby – this was the very best next thing. I wanted to have photos to help us remember as much of this feeling of awe, wonder, and love during pregnancy and a time where we are still the two of us but somehow different and changed already by our little girl.
Being a wedding planner and florist, I was so happy and excited that I was able to plan and create something for this shoot that is so meaningful to us. We were so lucky to have our amazing photographer, Anya Kernes, capture this important moment in our lives in a way that we exactly envisioned. The shoot came at the perfect time too – there was a brief rest from the all the rain we’ve been having in California which meant we were able to shoot in a gorgeous sea of wildflowers this spring. New blooms and new life seemed especially fitting for our maternity shoot!” Claire, Expectant Mother
