Maternity Portrait, Redwoods Regional Park, Oakland CA

"There is a power that comes to women when they give birth. They don't ask for it, it simply invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it." - D. Feldman

I am so happy that Xzayvianna chose me to photograph her and your gorgeous belly! She found me on Thumbtack and we hit it off immediately. She was even willing to schedule it early in the month to meet my travel plans. During our first conversation, we brainstormed, and I proposed a setting that I have been wanting to shoot in FOREVER...(drum roll please)...a majestic redwood forest. I had a magical vision of what I wanted the photos to look like, so I did my research to find the perfect location. I even ordered additional lighting equipment to make sure I could pull off my vision!

During the session, we had a blast. I used my not-so-secret weapon of making the couple laugh throughout the entire session. I captured beautiful moments with Xzayvianna and her belly, and her husband. We even shot several nude photos that came out gorgeous...which are not shown on this page for obvious reasons lol.
