It all started with an ambush. Long before we were doing Shelly & Jonathan’s Sunny Morgan Hill Maternity Session, we were strangers. The summer after I moved home, some wonderful women from my last church decided they wanted to be my friends, and ambushed me with a super fun evening of games, chocolate and margaritas.
Fast forward a year and I had the absolute joy and privilege of being there for Jonathan’s super romantic Santa Cruz Beach Proposal turned Beach Engagement Session. I still remember that day as if it were yesterday, and we got to celebrate them even more when it came time for their Rosewood CordeValle San Martin Engagement Session.
I photographed their beautiful Outdoor Redwood Fernwood Cellars Gilroy wedding in the rain in October a few years ago, and we just love it when we get to walk each phase of life with our couples from anniversaries to engagements to weddings to BABIES!
And this Sunny Morgan Hill Maternity Session was extra special with an emotional tribute to Shelly’s wonderful father who passed away last year, but we fully believe that Grandpa already knows just how incredible little baby Higgins is going to be, and is cheering on these two with the loudest applause.
Shelly & Jonathan: we love you both so much, and we can’t imagine our lives without you. It is truly a privilege to get to photograph your Morgan Hill Maternity Session, and we pray that when this baby comes, you would still continue to put each other first. The best thing you can do for Baby H is to make sure that beautiful marriage of yours gets stronger and stronger every single day.
Shelly & Jonathan are lifelong friends, just like all our clients and couples! There really is no place like Morgan Hill for a maternity session. Morgan Hill Maternity Sessions are some of the most beautiful portrait sessions we get to do. And if you’re looking for the perfect maternity dress or gown for maternity photos? You have to check out Pink Blush Maternity! Love that golden, outdoor backdrop for your engagement pictures, maternity session or anniversary photos? Whatever you have in mind, let’s talk!
We love to go just about anywhere in the Bay Area for a portrait session. From the beautiful cliffs in Carmel Highlands (check out the Sweeney Family’s Garrapata State Park Family Portrait Session this summer) to the historic Dolce Hayes Mansion (check out Jensen and Elizabeth’s San Jose Anniversary Session) to the elegant Greek columns of the Legion of Honor Museum (check out Alex and Loren’s San Francisco Engagement Session), there really is not an inch of our corner of California that isn’t perfect for photos. Interested in your Bay Area portrait session? Let’s chat!
