I absolutely LOVED this desert maternity session!! I love it almost as much as I love my past clients reaching out and getting to work with them. WAIT, that’s what happened here. HA!
I shot Jeff and Rocio’s wedding a few years back (see it here), and was SOOOO excited when I heard they were expecting!! Having a baby is such an exciting, nerve-wracking, terrifying point in your marriage, but it’s SO so rewarding and I was elated for them. I’m sure you could imaging my excitement when Rocio reached out to me to see if I was available to shoot a maternity session for them! If there is ANYTHING good to come out because of COVID, it’s that I have had way more time photographing other things that I may not have had time for. The stars aligned, and we were able to make it happen in the desert, on the dunes, as the sunset, and we even had a little bit of breeze so it was a zillion degrees!
These two live in the same little town as I do, and so that always makes things a little more fun to get to shoot where we live. It’s hard to beat the areas around the river, and I knew the perfect spot! (You may have seen another maternity session here before, just a different time of year!).
We laughed, we caught up, we talked about what may or may not happen with school in Mattawa in the fall, and we had a great time! Extra grateful that we were able to make it happen and for clients that continue being amazing through their new adventures, and allowing me to capture them!!
