Bump To Baby Photoshoots in Walnut Creek and San Francisco

Something some of you know, but most of you may not, is that I moved to this country as a refugee. I was born in Croatia and as a child I survived the ugliness of a war that ravaged the area formerly known as Yugoslavia. This war ultimately led me to the United States, and resulted in me settling in the San Francisco Bay Area, so I am hesitant to complain. Even though I am completely assimilated as an American some twenty years after arriving in this country, I still occasionally get a tinge of nostalgia. To cure the nostalgia, I travel to Croatia almost yearly, and I also often rock out to the 90s Yugo pop music (especially when editing photos while home alone). I especially love to meet people from my neck of the woods who share similar experiences as mine. So, when I got the email from Vesna I was super excited to photograph both the maternity and newborn sessions for her and her husband Matt.

About the Maternity Session

Vesna’s husband Matt was born and raised in Walnut Creek, so for the maternity session we chose to stay close to where he grew up. We decided on the beautiful Shell Ridge open space and Borges Ranch as our photo destination. The open space looks so gorgeous as the sun falls behind the rolling hills and the Ranch gave us a lot of variety to play with, and even a few goats to include in the photos for fun.

About the Lifestyle Newborn Session

Vesna and Matt have a beautiful condo in San Francisco which they completely remodeled and which Vesna decorated herself. I was thrilled when I saw large windows and fantastic natural light throughout the space. Their baby boy was so adorable and so easy to photograph. He cooperated during the entire three hour session.

Needless to say, this Bump to Baby journey was a joy to photograph! Enjoy.

Maternity Session at a Horse Ranch in Danville | Bay Area Photographer

I just wanted to quickly post a teaser shot of the recent maternity session that I photographed at a private horse ranch in Danville. The couple had this beautiful classic Jeep Wagoneer and suggested to use it for our session. It was such a great idea. I will be posting more from this session once I finish editing. Until then, enjoy!

Sutro Baths and Lands End | Maternity Session for Lauren and Matt
FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

About The Parents-To-Be

I am in love with Lauren and Matt's beautiful maternity session! Lauren and Matt are expecting their first child and they can not be more excited about the next chapter in their lives. Lauren looked simply stunning and the dress she chose to wear was a perfect compliment to her gorgeous baby bump. I am so honored to have been chosen by them to capture these memories with my camera.

About The Session

This maternity session was photographed at the Lands End and Sutro Baths in San Francisco. This location is one of my favorite Bay Area locations to photograph. We're so lucky to be in this gorgeous area! One of the main reasons for my love of the Lands End and Sutro Baths is because you get so much variety, all within walking distance. We started off in the forest area. This is above the Sutro Baths and then, we made our way through the ruins, then down to the beach.  

Because of its beauty, it is no surprise that on any given day there are large groups of photographers working with their clients. Whether it's a wedding, engagement, maternity or a family photo session- the expectation for this area is that it's going to be super busy. I was slightly worried going into it on a beautiful Saturday afternoon like this, but it all worked out. Lauren and Matt had a beautiful maternity session, regardless of how busy it was.  It was a breath of fresh air to discover a sliver of deserted beach and that is where we finished off our session at the perfect time- as the sun went down. The hardest part about Lauren and Matt's maternity session was choosing these photos for this blog post. I could not narrow it down anymore so I am sharing a lot of them with you. Enjoy!
