We took a trip to one of our favorite places in California… Coronado Island. And it wasn’t just any trip. We were invited by our best friends to accompany them on their babymoon (the mother of all trips, if you will) before an incredible next chapter in their life together begins. We tanned by the ocean, biked through the town, had ice cream at The Del and even made it to the dog beach to let their baby girl Daphne Doodle run and play in the water. It quickly became one of those vacations we won’t ever forget, you know? “One for the books” they say.
On our last night in town we took the 5 minute walk from our hotel down to where the tide was making it’s move up the shore. The sun was setting just behind the island, showing off it’s warm California glow on the sand of the Hotel Del Beach. There we photographed Dena and Michael’s Coronado Island beach maternity session in one of their favorite places. It was a first for them, (even though they have been in front of our camera‘s since the very beginning) to be photographed during their first pregnancy. It was very surreal for us all. We were so grateful to shoot for them, to have these photos to remember this trip and this special time in their life before Emery makes his debut in just a matter of weeks. And what a crazy blessing that will be! So here’s to little Emery! Doug and I can’t wait to meet you little man!
