Nicholas and Sheena are doing it right: babymoon to Malibu before little Saylor arrives. The pair are from Chicago but visited Malibu for a few days to relax and enjoy one another's company (and some warmer weather) before their daughter arrives to rock their world. Though I met Nicholas and Sheena moments before I started snapping photos, they were game for a (pretty steep) hike up the cliffside to catch the golden light, then also flexible enough to pivot and hide from the (not cold but still blustery) winter winds.
Enjoy these sweet snaps from a session that was part maternity, part couple, and all perfection.
Point Dume, Malibu, CA
In order to get the sweeping ocean view, you'll have to hike up to the top via a steep (but short) and sandy trail but once you're there, there are endless overlooks and nooks to go off-trail and scope the view, the sunset, or your sweetie. Parking: in the lot on Point Dume State Beach OR if you're feeling lucky, roadside on Cliffside Drive (which saves you from making the hike.)
I do lots of maternity shoots, family shoots, couple shoots, and sometimes shoots that combine all of the above! Want to schedule a session of your own? Send me an email >> firstname.lastname@example.org
