I’ll be honest: I don’t shoot maternity photos often. But, when I do…they’re like this edgy Joshua Tree winter maternity session with A + S. I met A a couple years back when we were both being mentored by our friend Emily. She and her now-husband were just-barely engaged back then. And, today they have an adorable baby! When A emailed me in the middle of the pandemic telling she was pregnant and wanted me to take their maternity photos, I was in! Truly, it’s always such an honor photographing other photographers. I’ll never get over how cool my job is.

Speaking of cool…when we met in Joshua Tree on the day of their session, it was windy as heck. And, it was freezing (well, it was freezing in Southern California standards). But, A + S were total troopers! Even when we did belly pics with A, she just was like, “It’s not that cold! I’m all good!”. Total. Trooper. I really couldn’t have asked for better people to brave the chilly desert winter with. And, I’m gonna be real with y’alllll, these photos are *chef’s kiss*.
