Otay Lakes is super gorgeous. It truly is a gem in San Diego, a somewhat unknown gem in San Diego. It was a great place to do a Maternity Session! This is Part 3 of a Styled Shoot I participated in with like the creatives of SD Photographer Meet Up, Lyndsay's Baby Bump Mini Session!
Our beautiful mommy-to-be model was glowing against the shimmering Otay Lake as the sun melted behind me casting a reflection of color on the lake. It was definitely one of those awe-mazing moments, sweet, and quiet. Quiet because this is such a precious time between mom and babe. It's the calm before the storm in many ways.
I've come to really appreciate maternity sessions. Pregnancy is such a unique experience and transformation, testing your limits, and making you redefine your life. I am not a mommy (yet), but from every mommy I've talked to, they have told me, the love between a mother and her child is one only a mother can understand.
I was honored to capture that everlasting bond.
