Baby Davis | Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park Maternity Session

The fire service brought these sweet friends into our lives a few years ago, and today, I couldn't be more excited that we are both having baby GIRLS about 6 weeks apart! We had a great time at their Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park maternity session, and soaked up the pretty light coming through the trees and big, wide open fields.

Sara and Aaron are the sweetest - both raised in Oregon and now taking root in SoCal, they're like a tall glass of sweet tea with country music and a round of corn hole playing in the background. The kind of goodhearted people who will always be there for you, and are always up for a good time.

Dear friends, your baby girl is one lucky little lady to have you as parents. Can't wait to meet her soon! <3

Briana + Todd | Orange County Maternity Session

These two will be parents in 1 month! Eek! Bri and I went to elementary, junior high, and high school together, we were maids of honor in each others' wedding, and now I can't wait to see her become a mom alongside the love of her life.

As a natural light maternity photographer in Orange County, I LOVE finding new locations with pretty golden light that filters through fluttering leaves. Our shoot was later in the afternoon when the sun is lower in the sky, and it felt like a fairytale. I love the way they looked so sweetly at each other, and the little spark that was in their eyes.

Love you Todd & Bri! xoxo

The Valero Family | La Verne Fall Mini Session

Sheena and I met while working for the St. Baldrick's Foundation to help raise money for childhood cancer research. I was able to witness the journey of her first pregnancy with this little guy, Evan, and it was so very special to now see her with her second pregnancy and just be a part of such a special time for this family.

For their mini session, we played out in a pretty field and chased after the light. I love that she brought cute little pumpkins and signs to make her session unique. And their outfits.... aren't they just the cutest?! The scarf, the puffy little vest, ahh... all the heart eyes :)

Love these sweet words Sheena sent me after she saw her pretty photos: "Kristen is one of the best photographers we've had the pleasure to work with. She's not only amazing behind the lens, she's also sweet, patient, warm and friendly - she made our whole maternity shoot such a fun and easy experience. My husband and I were happy she was able to capture such great photos of our active 4-year-old and us as a family. Our son enjoyed posing for her and wanted to be in every shot! :) All the pictures turned out beautifully. We were so blessed that she helped us capture this moment in our lives and look forward to working with her again in the future!"

Becca | Inland Empire Natural Light Maternity Session

I'm over here listening to the debate in the background, but really swooning over this BEAUTIFUL momma and her girlies. I love pretty natural light and sessions like this that make you feel like this crazy world is a little less crazy with people like this. <3

Katie of A Simple Story Photography- thank you so much for taking me under your wing for this mentoring session and setting up this great shoot with Becca! I've learned so much from you and will be forever thankful! xoxo

Katie + Zack | Oak Glen Woodsy Maternity Session

I can't believe it's been one year since this fun woodsy maternity session in Oak Glen! Katie just invited me to little Rowan's first birthday party, and it reminded me of their sweet maternity photos, how quickly this year has gone by, and how this lady is such an incredible mother! As an Orange County and Inland Empire maternity photographer, getting to photograph such special milestones in peoples lives so they can look back on them year over year makes my heart so happy :)

Katie and I have been friends since Junior High, so when she asked me to shoot her maternity session for her first little one, I was over the moon! It was such an honor and gosh, Katie and Zack are just such great people.

They put together a woodland themed nursery for their little guy, so of course we had to find a woodsy location for their session! Oak Glen's Wildlands Conservancy was the perfect spot.

Thinking about you three today, and can't wait to see you again soon! xoxo
