Marina del Rey Maternity Photographer | Mona

July 27, 2010

Well, it’s been a while since a maternity session has graced the pages of the Vanessa M Photography blog, but last Sunday’s shoot with Mona made it well worth the wait. From the moment I met Mona and Sanjay, I knew we were destined for a great shoot. They are expecting their first baby in a just a few weeks and wanted to capture Mona sporting that pregnant glow – and oh, does she wear it well!

We started off our session with a stroll from their home in Marina del Rey down to the beach. I love it when I get to spend a little time with my clients just relaxing and shooting the breeze before we get down to the nitty gritty of the shoot – it helps break the ice, but honestly, I don’t think these two needed any ice breaking because they were completely at ease in front of the camera. Mona, especially, was a natural – she worked it effortlessly! I had the toughest time picking which photos to post, so enjoy this small sampling of this gorgeous mom-to-be.

When you knock on the door and this is the face that greets you, it’s safe to assume you’re about to have an amazing session:
