Ashley & Blake // A Springtime Maternity Session

"When you're in love, you don't have to do a damn thing. You can just be. You can just stay quiet in the world. You don't have to move an inch." -Charles Baxter, 'The Feast of Love'

The day dawned bright and clear, and the air was warm--the sign of a perfect spring day. Ashley, a fellow talented photographer herself, and her husband wanted maternity photos that echoed the feeling of spring and the renewal of life to the earth. We talked about many different locations to shoot, but eventually decided that the Botanical Gardens in San Francisco would be perfect. The flowers were in full bloom and everything was fresh and green in the city. We ventured into the beautiful rolling natural landscapes of Golden Gate Park, and eventually worked our way to the ocean for the last bits of sunset.

Ashley, as a glowing mama-to-be, couldn't have looked more beautiful.
