One of my absolute favorite things to do is photograph a sunset maternity session in Malibu. The light and the view are breathtaking and create the perfect backdrop. Anytime I get asked for a location idea I recommend this spot. Keep scrolling and you’ll see why!

From the second I met Erinn and Craig, I knew this would be a joyful session. They couldn’t stop laughing and smiling, and it was so easy to see how much they love each other.

We walked out to my favorite place to begin my sessions. It’s not very far from the parking lot, but within minutes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere with a view of the Pacific Ocean.

They settled into posing very quickly and were complete naturals at it! They had me laughing the entire time. My favorite thing to do was to say to Craig “Make Erinn laugh!”. Honestly, half the time I’m not even sure what he did, but he was able to make her laugh instantly.

I always say it’s so important to be married to someone you just have fun being with. I’m lucky enough that my husband and I are constantly laughing together. It was so nice to see this same joy in Erinn and Craig’s marriage!

Now that’s not to say that there weren’t any quiet, tender moments! I would glance down for a moment to change my settings or check my lighting and look back up only to see them stealing a kiss. The way Craig looked at Erinn was the sweetest!

I grabbed a few photos of them walking as we moved to the next location. That gorgeous Malibu light is unreal!

Even at 36 weeks pregnant, Erinn was feeling good enough to walk a bit further and I’m SO glad we did! Check out this view!

As we were wrapping up their session the sun sank just perfectly for us to get the most amazing golden hour images. I’m SO happy that they chose to have a sunset maternity session in Malibu!

Thank you so much, Erinn and Craig, for trusting me with capturing such an important chapter of your lives! You two are going to be amazing parents and I can’t wait to meet your sweet baby!
