One of my favorite parts of maternity sessions is getting to know parents who are in the same boat as I am with two little ones or one toddler and a newborn on the way! It was fun talking with Lindsay about the parenthood roller coaster that we all experience as parents. Both of our little ones were two and a half at the time and were experiencing the same things. As a momma of a two year old & four year old, I was excited for her to welcome her little boy soon. It’s challenging but there is so much joy that comes from welcoming in a new addition to the family, and watching your first child became a big brother or sister.
We did Lindsay's maternity session at Guam's Asan Beach Park. It’s a beautiful park with rows of coconut trees, a nice beach, and grassy field. The sun perfectly sets over this location. I loved Lindsay’s dress. It was casual and something I would wear. Everything went perfect and it was so much fun photographing and chatting with Lindsay!

This maternity session was done at one of Guam's beautiful beaches. There's a bit of a trek to get there which allows me to get to know my clients better as we walk to the location. One of my favorite things about being a Guam photographer is getting to meet people from all over the world. As I talked to my clients, I quickly found out that Talyta, the beautiful soon-to-be momma is from Brazil, and her husband's service in the Air Force had brought them to Guam. Brazil is definitely on my list of places to visit so I was excited when she told me that!
As we walked in, I noticed how low the tide was. I had never seen it so low at that location! There was almost no water. The sun was super harsh with not a cloud in the sky. As a photographer, this is one of those situations that test you. You have to know how to work your camera and know where to place your subjects to work with what you've been dealt! I know Talyta was a little bummed when we realized we wouldn't be getting the beautiful turquoise waters that you get from Guam, but you have to work with what nature deals and I think her session turned out beautiful anyway.
We had talked about wardrobe prior to the session and Talyta picked out a couple of dresses from my collection that she wanted to use during the session. She also brought a few of her own. We managed to fit in four outfit changes. I welcome outfit changes during sessions because I like how different outfits change the feel of the photos! It helps to give a nice variety to client's photo galleries.
This session was filled with so much love. It was so apparent how in love Talyta & Marc were with each other and with their baby. They were the nicest couple too. I really am so lucky to have the best clients!!
