South Bay Newborn & Baby Photographer | Maternity session in Torrance Beach, CA / by Natalie Van

You guuuuuuyyyssss! This maternity session has quickly become one of my favorite sessions to date!

When I met up with Mama during our session consult a couple of days before her session, she expressed to me how she mainly wanted to capture her & her daughter before her new arrival comes. I could definitely relate with the unspoken bittersweet feeling that comes with welcoming your second, and the slight fear of sharing your time between a newborn, & your first little-- the one who made you a mama. She decided that she wanted her session to take place at the beach, & wanted her wardrobe to reflect a cozy, laid back, beach vibe! She had originally bought a dress from a maternity store, but after seeing my options, we didn't even need to use it! I love that I get to provide wardrobe for mamas & their littles from my NBP Client Closet, & will now be building up wardrobe for Dads! I often times tell my clients that the hardest part is getting to the session itself-- after that, I take care of every stressful element! From wardrobe, to light posing, to every other thing imaginable.

We had so much fun during this session, & my main goal was to capture this mama with her little, her world, her tiny human. This gorgeous mama was radiating, so of course I had to pull her aside & capture her & her belly as well! I love timing my beach sessions with a bit before the sunset, to get that bright dreamy lighting, & I love shooting a bit after the sun sets so that we can get that bit of mood There were so many gorgeous images from this session, it was hard picking a handful for this post! I usually post finished galleries on my Insta stories, so feel free to stop by every once in a while to catch a glimpse!
