From the photographer: This was a DIY maternity shoot. Normally, Annie and I are a husband-and-wife photography team, working together to document the love of other couples, but for this shoot, Annie got a chance to be on the other side of the lens!
At week 37 into her first pregnancy, I shot a set of photos of Annie in Half Moon Bay at a path flanked by some tall, beautiful cypress trees under the golden winter sun. It was freezing (especially for Annie, wearing that skimpy lace dress), and passers-by looked at us like we were crazy — mostly because we were!
After getting home, we shot another set in a floral milk bath. We filled the tub with a gallon and a half of whole milk and some flowers from our florist, Absolute Elegance.The results of the shoot came out better than expected, and a few days ago we welcomed our beautiful baby daughter into our family!
