This Coronado Bridge maternity session came with all sorts of fun surprises! Meet Nikki, Steve, and Henry. This adorable family will be welcoming their newest addition in the next couple of months. I, and many others, cannot wait for the big gender reveal! Somehow they have incredible restraint, and have decided to wait until birth to find out what they’re having, for the SECOND time. Nikki is also a super mom.. opting for a natural birth once again with her amazing husband guiding her through it (go Steve!).
They’re moving across the country soon and Coronado Island has played such a special role in their lives over the past few years. It’s where their family began, and the place they call home. Immediately, we knew this was where we would hold our session.
Surprisingly, we were lucky enough to witness an engagement on the beach during our time together! Some friends of the groom helped set up a beautiful spot complete with photos and big balloons spelling “Marry Me” for the soon-to-be bride to be led to. When we were almost done with our photo session, we finally saw a man leading a blindfolded and giggling woman to the spot! There was even a photographer waiting to capture the moment, otherwise I definitely would have jumped in.
I will miss you Nikki, Steve, and Henry, and we all can’t wait to meet the fourth member of your beautiful family. Thank you for allowing me to capture this special transition in all of your lives!
