Karyna and Ben contacted me about doing a maternity photo session and wanted to do it in an outdoor, natural setting. I had done two other maternity sessions up on Mt Tamalpais this year and suggested that we go up there again. To my delight, Karyna and Ben loved the idea. Needless to day, Mt Tam gave us a beautiful setting for this shoot.
This secret location high on Mount Tamalpais in Marin County is one of the San Francisco bay area’s greatest photographic gems. I have made some of my favorite images up here, including another maternity session just a few months ago. This maternity session is one of my all time favorites. I hope you like it too!
Julia had met me a few years ago at a wedding fair. She had wanted me to photograph her wedding at the time but I was out of her price range back then. When the time drew near to do a maternity session, she reached out to me again. While I certainly love doing maternity photography in the studio, I was so excited that she wanted to do an outdoor session and I knew of the perfect location.
If you’d like to do a similar session on Mt Tamalpais, please give me a call!
I met Sibrina a couple of years ago at a wedding fair and as it turned out, I was unavailable to photograph her wedding. However, later on when she was thinking about maternity photos, she thought of me again. (Thank you Sibrina!)
Sibrina and Brian both really wanted to do something outdoors with an epic view. I knew of just the place!
I have been photographing on Mt. Tamalpais for years and it never lets me down. Just look at this scene!
I like to photograph up here in the late afternoon and into sunset for obvious reasons.
The image below is the one that Sibrina and Brian chose to have printed in a large 40×30″ metal print. They will display it prominently in their living room. I LOVE making huge prints! You can see so much detail and really get a feel for what it was like to be there in person.
I have photographed bodies of all shapes and sizes in all types of light. This is my first maternity session and I love how it turned out. What do you think?
