Japanese Garden Maternity Shoot

Jenny and Ivan are an amazing couple and are on their way to being parents! Jenny is 7 months pregnant, so we got together for a photoshoot to capture this important time in their lives.

Jenny wore this handmade crystal necklace during their wedding, so they thought it fitting to include in their maternity portraits. What a cute idea!

The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden in Long Beach provided a beautiful setting for photos.

One of my favorites! I really love these sweet moments that show you so much about two people and their connection (or in this case, three people!).

I love the look of the light peaking through the trees as the sun sets.
