No Pain, No Gain | Los Angeles Maternity Photographer

This session was special to me. Catie was born two days after my little brother. I remember when she was born, because her older sister is a friend of mine. Then years later, I took Catie's engagement photos with her then Fiance (now husband and baby daddy), Chad. And now, there's a very good chance that Catie's baby will be born two days after *my* baby - and she chose me to take her maternity photos. :) Catie and I headed out into a new yellow flower field last week. We encountered these gross spiky thorny weeds that stick up in your pants and down in your shoes, and are just completely awful. And bugs. Yep, there were bugs. Then the part where Catie almost fainted. Um, twice. Followed by me literally not being able to get out of bed the next day because of severe back pain. See, this is what happens when two preggies in their third trimester go venturing out in a field taking pictures.

Thank you, Catie, for choosing me to photograph you and your perfect belly. I feel like things have come full circle and it's so awesome to watch you become a mother. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.

It was worth every thorn.

Happy Mother's Day.
