Mermaid Inspired Maternity Shoot // Southern California Maternity Photographer

Mermaid inspired maternity shoot

Your journey is the most beautiful thing you have, and the time you spend pregnant is filled with anticipation and wonder. We often get easily bogged down in the details of preparing for a new child and changes, but I love to celebrate mamas. Your experience matters! That is why I love to imagine and photograph dreamy maternity sessions that capture your imagination and wonder at this new life you’re bringing into the world. Come with me on this journey through a whimsical mermaid-inspired maternity shoot and dream with me.

Jessica and Stefan’s mermaid-inspired maternity session

This mermaid-inspired maternity shoot perfectly captured the grace and charm of dancing waves. As a Southern California maternity photographer, I am inspired by capturing your most important chapters. That is why I focus on how your story inspires me. I love to work with you to make your dreamy photoshoot moment come true! The most memorable moments in life can feel as if they are the only moments that exist. Having a photoshoot ensures that you can experience this chapter over and over for the rest of your life, resting at this moment for as long as possible. 

We had a wonderful time photographing Jessica’s mermaid-inspired maternity shoot. Her smile is enough to charm anyone and we want to share it with the world. Her green dress adds a beautiful touch to an already perfect environment, full of beauty and peace, and her hair is gorgeous too!

The Secret Field

There are so many beautiful photo locations in Southern California, and the secret field in Palos Verdes provides the perfect atmosphere to highlight this lovely time in Jessica and Stefan’s life. Gentle looks and soft light hold anticipation as they prepare to bring new life into the world. Their joy becomes ours as we take in the beauty of these pictures. We are so excited for them and their little one!

Over the years, I have done hundreds of photo shoots at the secret field, but it never loses its magic. It’s still one of my favorite places to bring my clients. The location’s charm is somewhere between where the sun hits the eucalyptus trees, and the ocean air settling on your skin. There is always magic in the air at the Secret Field.

Maternity Photographs

Pregnancy is a time full of wonder and contemplation and we love how Jessica’s pictures tell us that she already loves her new child with everything she is. It is amazing how the simplest moments in life can become some of the memories that we cherish forever. During the short time we have to anticipate new life, we experience long days and we can get impatient to be with our new loved ones, but there is so much beauty in the moments that carry us through to all of our destinations

It is easy to think about pregnancy in terms of the past and the future. Often, it feels like everything about that time is focused on your future with a new child. Imagining my future child and their laughter, needs, and personhood, was one of my favorite things about being pregnant. But, pregnancy is also its own beautiful time. I am in love with photographing expecting mothers and experiencing this breathtaking time with them.

Sun and Sparrow would love to help you create photographs that will help you cherish all the times in your life. I want to work with you to create the photoshoot of your dreams so we can cherish the stories you are writing with your life!
