Dog mom, wedding photographer and lifestyle coach. I'll always be your hype woman!


Beach maternity photos are definitely becoming a new favorite for us here at MHP.

It was an absolute honor to come back to the central California coast to photograph Brianna and Murat’s maternity session. Morro Bay is a stunning location for some beach maternity photos. Getting to capture moments for my clients is really special, but getting to capture a love story through the years – now THAT is something extraordinarily special.

These two were #MHPWeddings clients and now they’re about to be parents. Scroll through to see some of my favs from this beach maternity session in Morro Bay!

This beach maternity session is one I will never forget.

Starting to incorporate film into my photography workflow has been a total game changer. One of the beautiful things about film photography is the depth in the colors. Film is timeless yet vintage; colorful yet soft. It’s a medium that gives our clients an amazing gift.

And let’s not forget to mention how stunning Brianna is as a mother.

I love this job; I love capturing photos of couples and families through all the chapters of life. Giving our clients the gift of their memories captured in a timeless way is beautiful. This beach maternity session was a favorite and I can’t wait to capture more memories for this sweet couple and their growing family.
