Santa Monica Maternity Session with Charming Details

Santa Monica Maternity Session with Charming Details

There is something so perfectly sweet and charming about this lovely maternity shoot by Marisa Holmes Photographer. You might recognize this gorgeous mama-to-be, Lauren Stewart, the event designer behind some of our most popular featured baby showers (like this one and this one). Lauren and her husband Brian headed out to Palisades Park near the beach in Santa Monica, CA with Marisa Holmes for the photos, then captured some cozy shots at home. We love the whimsical touches Lauren added to the scene, from the large peach and cream balloons to the little picnic details. Later today we'll be sharing the beautiful nursery and newborn photos of their baby girl Harper, who has since made her debut! Stop by the full gallery to see all of the pretty images submitted.
