Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Expecting Couple Karla & Vince

Molly Ann of Luminaire Images Photography captured this cute couple, Karla and Vince, in a beautiful maternity session in southern California. These first-time parents were actually high school sweethearts and have been together for 12 years. So sweet! The shoot had a mix of intimate moments at home as well as some gorgeous outdoor shots on the beach. Karla is such a stunning expecting mom! Stop by the full gallery if you'd like to see more from this shoot.
