Last month I had the opportunity to photograph a very special occasion for Lydia and Kirk which was the Maternity shots of their very first child. This was a very fun shoot because we a chance to capture a wide variety of shots, it even had a few mishaps that ended up being pretty funny.
The morning started out by heading to the beautiful El Dorado Park in Long Beach, which was just blocks away from the couples Cypress home. We decided to start here while the morning sun light was still soft, and later move to an indoor location to finish up the session. Kirk had some really fun ideas about trying to capture home life while Lydia was still pregnant so that they could show their child where they were during all of this.
Once we got there we stopped to take a few pictures at our first spot, while we were there, we thought it would be pretty cool to have flower falling. Of course not all things go according to plan, you can see the images below.
Thinking that it would be cool to have flower falling, Kirk collected some and threw it in the air. The problem was that the flower all stuck together in a ball which lead to a pretty fun sequence of photos.
After Quickly Cleaning up we proceeded to a few more spots in the park.
The story reading on the bed is probably one of my favorite pictures of this session.
