Walnut Creek, CA Family Maternity and Newborn Session

As a photographer, I love when I am able to see a family grow and change. Meeting Coco and her parents for a beautiful outdoor maternity session in Walnut Creek, CA and then joining them for a newborn session with Baby Miles Cruz in their home were such enjoyable experiences.

Our maternity session was just so beautiful. I loved that the family went with a more formal look to complement to natural setting of Civic Park and the birch trees at the Veterans Memorial Plaza, both in Walnut Creek. 

We were able to capture this beautiful family of three, their love for each other and take a few holiday photos as well. Any time we can add in photos that capture the specific time or year or commemorate an event, I love to tie that into the session.Baby Miles Cruz was born one day before his due date just like 3-year-old sister Coco. He was the perfect present, arriving a few days before Christmas. At our maternity session we were able to capture photos of this beautiful family of four, including using a blanket from Coco’s session. Using an item from a previous child’s photo session makes the next child’s session that much more meaningful.

I also loved photos of Cruz with the giant bear. I can envision the family continuing to take pictures of Cruz with this bear month after month and year after year, showing just how small he started and how much he’s grown. Photos that really show growth are so beautiful so starting with the bear in the newborn session was a great addition.
