I loved this photo session in Palo Alto! This expecting mama is a fellow maternity, newborn, and family photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s a little nerve-racking to photograph another photographers family, but they are the sweetest family so any nerves immediately went away once they arrived and I had a fun time.

This session was a regular maternity session (non-mini session), so mom and I decided on the right location for their session based on what she was envisioning for her photos. We ended up going with a location near Stanford with pretty trees and we did their session about 1.5 hours before sunset.

Since styling is also included in the regular maternity package, mom decided to ask for my opinion on what she should wear. I suggested neutrals and at least 1 patterned outfit. She found a really pretty floral maxi wrap from ASOS and I was SO IN LOVE with it! I don’t do as many maternity sessions in comparison to newborn sessions, or this would definitely be apart of my client closet! I wish they had this in regular sizing for my newborn session mamas! She had a hard time finding something that fit her son, so she decided to use items from the client closet. Dads are usually easier to dress since they simply wear whatever matches mom and kids.

Enjoy this sweet family’s maternity photo session at Stanford!
