When Shayla recommended we shoot in her backyard because they live above a creek, I was immediately on board. I really enjoy photographing in people’s homes for maternity/newborn shoots. I feel like there’s sort of a raw intimacy in people’s homes, and it adds beautiful depth to the story their lives are already telling. Shayla and Fernando were tons of fun. I loved hearing their stories and catching their excitement for this little boy soon to join the world. Can’t wait to meet little guy in a few weeks!
