Palos Verdes Maternity Session

This mama-to-be contacted me last minute for her maternity session in Rancho Palos Verdes and everything sort of fell into place. I was available, she knew where she wanted to go, and already had her maternity outfits planned! When we met the sun was just starting to set and made for beautiful golden photos. This beach has two great spots! First, there’s an overlook spot with tall weeds that capture the golden light just right. Then as you keep walking down you hit the beach. It’s never crowded and there is some greenery which adds some life to the photos. This Palos Verdes beach was the perfect spot for a maternity session.

P’s first outfit was a blue, off-the-shoulder flowy dress that contrasted nicely with the golden light. The ocean was just far enough out of view that her dress didn’t blend with the background. Her second outfit was a pleated yellow dress that definitely popped out from the sandy beach scenery at the beach below. Both dresses framed her baby bump perfectly and I liked that they weren’t skin tight like most maternity dresses can be! I always will recommend to go with a more flowy option if you’re wearing a dress to our session!

These two made it so fun and easy to photograph them. They were all smiles and super easy to talk to and direct. I had never been to Palos Verdes for any session. I am super happy that they showed me this beautiful location. This session was photographed a little over a year ago from me writing this post, so I recently got to photograph their little one’s first birthday too!! Love being able to continue working with returning clients!

"I came across Nicoles IG page & knew she was the prefect photographer to book with for my maternity shoot, I was so lucky to have been able to book with her last minute for I was getting closer to my due date. She was super sweet & made my boyfriend and I comfortable working with her, absolutely in love with how beautiful the pictures came out and you can tell my boyfriend and I were very comfortable being ourselves with her & she captured beautiful moments of us genuinely laughing & smiling which really left me in awe with her work! She’s an amazing photographer and the pictures she sent me literally teared me up for how beautiful they came out. 10/10 would say don’t doubt to work with her & book her! She’s worth it & she would leave you in awe with her amazing gifted talent in photography! I look forward to book with her again to do family pictures with our newborn baby!"

"My wife and I eloped in Palm Springs and Nicole was our photographer. Not only did she make us both feel super comfortable, but she really did make us feel like models/princesses and just all around special. From the moment she and David arrived, they added ease to our day and made the day flow effortlessly. She is extremely passionate about her work and it is reflected by the good vibes she exudes. If we had to do this all over again, or for any shoot at that matter, we 10/10 should choose her again. :)"

"If we had to do this all over again..we 10/10 should choose her again."

"Where do I even begin? Nicole has been blessed with amazing photography skills! If anything she's an amazing person to work with and I am so happy the way our photos came out and were captured for our special moment. These photos will be forever cherished and we can be forever grateful for Nicole and her amazing work. She is so sweet, kind, professional -her assistant helped tremendously as well! I am so happy how everything turned out and HIGHLY recommend her for future photography work. You guys are so easy to work with- very knowledgeable too! Thank you for your dedication, your time, your hard work & your blessed skills! P.S. most importantly you made us feel so comfortable and be ourselves! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
