Nothing warms my heart more than watching a beautiful couple embark on their journey towards parenthood. I was blessed to photograph Esther & Jared’s pregnancy announcement with their sweet pup Teddy this past summer. And now they were back in front of the camera for some Bay Area maternity photos that did not disappoint!
Esther and Jared are due with a sweet baby boy in a few short weeks. This will be the first male grandson on either side of the family, so everyone is very excitedly awaiting his arrival. The pair are starting to get things in order to welcome in their newest family member, including prepping the nursery and starting to think about what to pack in their hospital bag. Esther’s Mom is looking forward to making the journey up from Southern California to help the new parents once their son arrives.
Esther thankfully has had a relatively peaceful pregnancy with only a few cravings here and there-such as her need for ice cream and Chinese food a few nights before our session. Jared is already looking forward to helping his son navigate developmental milestones as well as learn a few sports once he is old enough. I think their baby boy was excited to have his bump photos taken, as he gave a few sweet kicks during our session!
I can’t say it enough- but it truly was such an honor to document this next amazing step in your life before you two become a family of three! I had a blast during your Bay Area maternity photo session. It was so wonderful to catch up and hear about how life has been for you since we saw each other last. Esther, you were positively glowing- you make pregnancy look magical! And Jared, I appreciate you being so willing to capture some amazing shots with your gorgeous wife- the one of you both in the field is my favorite! I’m so thrilled for you two to welcome your sweet baby boy soon. He is already so loved with such great people for parents. Enjoy these last few weeks of peace and quiet- for soon your home will be filled with all the beautifully busy sounds of family. Thank you again and congrats!
