Hadn’t posted anything on wardrobe for maternity session yet.  For all mommies to be, here are some tips for you:

1.  Plain neutral color wardrobe helps to bring out your curves while stripes and pattern may be distracting. 
2.  Choose color and fabric that flattens you and clothes that hugs your body curves. 
3.  For dresses, empire waist style works the best.  Although dress length is totally a personal preference, maxi length dress accentuates your curve while concealing swollen legs and ankles.
4.  Cami tank tops and straight leg draw string linen pants/maxi skirt give you the flexibility to bare your belly.  If you prefer more coverage on your arms, dress in layers and throw on a cardigan.
5.  For the intimate indoor maternity session at your home, you can try something different such as lingerie, flyaway babydoll, yoga bra top with yoga pants, or scarves to drape your body.


For your second wardrobe, you can consider something more fun and adventurous.

Just visited Kathryn on Sunday for her newborn session.  I did a very sweet maternity session for her and her husband in Irvine.  It was a gorgeous day with beautiful sunset.  Can’t wait to finish up the newborn photos and share them with you.  But here’s one of my favorite.  Enjoy!

It was such a sweet maternity session for Mimi and Allen at The Santa Monica Beach.  Mimi is such a radiant and beautiful mommy-to be.  Thank you for sharing your joy and excitement of pregnancy with me.   I am delighted to capture this special moment and stage of life because those 40 weeks of pregnancy goes by so quickly.   Enjoy your final trimester.  I can’t wait to meet your newborn next month.

It was such a beautiful baby shower, exquisite yet intimate and personal.  It was the collaborative effort of three close friends for the mommy-to-be.  Thank you for inviting me to capture your baby shower, Perry.  Enjoy your baby girl and parenting.

The food was so great… and the party hosts shared their great finds in OC.  Check them out when you are in the Lake Forest neighborhood.

Thanks for coming out to Santa Monica for a photo session with me.  Mimi is the cutest mommy-to-be.  I can’t wait to meet baby Jayden this Fall.

I was so excited when my friend, Beverly asked me to capture her pregnancy of her second baby.  We had a photo session during the holiday 2009 when she was 7 months pregnant.  Here are some of my favorites from her session.

Beverly just had her baby last week.  I am going to visit her and Ian tomorrow for his newborn session.  It will be so much fun.  See you all tomorrow!
