Marlene & Rudy : Darling

I'll say it again. And again. And again. Maternity sessions allow me a special opportunity to make women feel beautiful. A pregnant woman is so much different than a bride on her wedding day, a bride on an engagement session, a mother after birth. From my experience, a pregnant woman isn't able to see her beauty as her body changes. She needs to see how beautiful she is through someone else's eyes. And usually, in any light, she glows.

Marlene was no exception. From the second we met up, I saw what she couldn't see. I continuously tried to remind her how amazing she looked. I mean look at her! Look at how Rudy looks at her. I had a great time wandering around Valencia with them, as they walked hand in hand, in excited anticipation for little Asiah's arrival. With parents as beautiful as these two, I'm positive she's going to be a little cutie. Thank you both a million zillion for hanging out with me and letting me document this very special moment in your lives. I know how precious this pregnancy is for you and I'm honored I was a small part of it. xoxo

Adore this photo. The peacefulness just gets to me.





Love when a girl can just let go and rock it!
