Beachy, Bohemian Maternity Shoot

We know it's December, but we just couldn't resist sharing these beautiful beach maternity photos from Steph Anderson Photography! This gorgeous expecting mom, Ashley, is the daughter of famous longboard shaper Bill Stewart, so Steph thought a bohemian, beachy maternity shoot would be perfect for her along with her darling, look-a-like 3-year-old daugther, Emianna. She opted for matching white dresses for both of them that were accessorized with absolutely stunning flower head wreaths created by Aly from The Vine's Leaf, Custom Blooms. Steph also wanted the setting to have special meaning to Ashley, and Trestles, the best surfing beach in San Clemente, was the perfect spot! You can see even more lovely photos over in the full gallery.
