Maternity Session at the Santa Monica Pier

This lovely couple had wished originally to be photographed at El Matador State Beach; but as we were set to meet there on a Saturday afternoon, the Woosley Fires started. Then Thanksgiving and the Holidays would immediately follow and with the chaos and heartbreak that came with watching Malibu being destroyed, we decided to stay local and meet at the Santa Monica Pier. Or I should say UNDER the Santa Monica Pier!
I am always so happy to introduce new spots to my clients, even though they may have lived locally for years, there is always an opportunity to see something new and unexpected.
The day of the shoot was magically warm for November, enough that I didn’t have to feel bad for asking mama to get wet among the mellow waves.
Here are some photos from the session. Enjoy!
