Beach-Theme Maternity Shoot

Hello again my beauties! Today I’m excited to share with you some beautiful photos from a beach-themed maternity photo shoot I got to be a part of. Photographer Alyona of Anokiart Photography took first-time mommy Alexandra to El Matador Beach (Malibu, CA) where Debra of Purple Meadows Events had a gorgeous layout ready for the shoot. Here’s 7 months-preggers Alexandra, giving us some fierce eyes.

We did brown smoky eyes with airbrush foundation and pink-mocha lips to compliment Alexandra’s red undertones in her hair and olive skin.

We also touched up the belly, although she was lucky enough not to have a single stretch mark!

I love this shot of her in this fun floppy hat.

Rebecca’s Garden- Maternity Shoot

Hello beauties! I recently got the chance to work on Sharon’s belly for a maternity shoot, for the second time. You may remember parents-to-be John and Sharon from this previous post when Sharon was pregnant with baby Derek. Derek’s theme was airplanes and travel, so we painted the world on her belly and it turned out amazing. This time, it was baby Rebecca’s turn, and Mommy Sharon wanted the girliest theme ever: butterflies, orchids, lots of pink and of course, glitter! DS Photography was on hand to capture the moments.

It was very surreal having little Derek there to “help us” with baby Rebecca’s painting…just about a year and a half ago, we were doing the same for him! derek3

I love this one of Derek, contemplating his next streak of blue.Derek
