Vanessa and Ismael had the most perfect idea for their San Francisco maternity session. They wanted to honor the place their relationship really took off, while also honoring their baby girls chosen name of Marina. This name, by the way, also is in honor of Ismael’s mother. Too sweet! Put all these aspects together and we captured the most amazing seaside marina maternity session there ever was.
I’m very blessed to say that I’ve known Vanessa & Ismael from the time they became engaged, to married, to now almost parents! The pair tied the knot last summer at the beautiful Mountain Terrace in Woodside. This year brought them the most precious gift of a baby girl due mid-October!
As if life wasn’t already busy enough for these newlyweds and soon-to-be parents in just surviving this crazy pandemic time alone, they also recently moved into their first official family home this summer as well! Both admit they have been enjoying prepping the home for the baby and are anxiously awaiting her arrival.
Thank you so much for including me once again in such a huge life milestone. I know I’ve said it a million times, but I’ll say it again- documenting your sweet San Francisco maternity session was such an honor! Watching your love story transform has been the most amazing experience. There is a reason I nearly teared up when I saw Vanessa pregnant, in person when we first met up in the parking lot!
Vanessa- I won’t forget how beautiful you looked, carrying your sweet baby girl in your tummy. You truly looked like a mermaid goddess! I’m so glad to hear your pregnancy is going well and I pray you continue to find rest and peace from now through delivery, and beyond.
Ismael- I believe it when Vanessa says you are going to be a wonderful father! I saw that sweet look in your eye every once in a while when you looked over at your glowing pregnant wife. You looked so proud and so excited!
I can’t wait to see the happy news of your little one arriving and will be anxiously checking social media around her due date! I’m sending you both so much love and support as you enter this next phase of life. Please know I’m always here if you need anything, be it sleep-training tips for your little one, or just gushing over how cute her little toes are!
