PAUMA VALLEY - It's funny how photography involves more than just manipulating light and poses to convey a vision. It also leads you through intricate social networks, as was the case with Leah. I initially met her while photographing her sister, Hannah's, senior portraits in Laguna Beach, California. Though our interaction was brief, she came across as friendly and down-to-earth. Subsequently, I rarely encountered her except for a few cameos on Hannah's Instagram.
Then she met Tony, an attractive guy with a charming personality. It wasn't long before these two fell in love, and eventually, Tony proposed. In 2022, they reached out to me to capture their engagement and wedding.
Two years down the line, the call came. Leah was pregnant.
I was incredibly excited to learn about their upcoming addition and their desire for us to craft some artwork for the occasion. Thus, I took them to one of my hidden spots in Pauma Valley where flowers were in full bloom. Leah looked absolutely stunning, radiating a beautiful glow. The result of our session can be seen below.
