These Florida natives wanted to honor their origins by shooting by the water. As they are currently stationed in Travis AFB, they decided on a Northern California gem, the Crissy Field East Beach. It was a lovely and golden late afternoon in November when we started shooting, Britney was 28 weeks along at the time, and she was just radiant and beautiful throughout the whole session.
Britney and Brad were a little shy in the beginning, telling me they are not used to being behind the camera at all. The best part of my job is helping people become more confident and comfortable in their own skin as if nobody is watching at all. Well, it was a crowded beach on a warm afternoon, but they were definitely up for the challenge. I love that their love for each other shows so much in these pictures. They are expecting their first child and are very excited to be new parents.
I wanted to capture these easy and bright moments for the both of them, and I think I was able to do so, because how effortless they made it for me.
