There’s just something so magical about my favorite Pasadena garden. Every time I shoot there, without fail, the light is so amazing. I knew this was the perfect location when Darlene described what she was looking for in her maternity photos–an outdoor, natural setting that suited her and Joshua’s laid-back personalities and where we could get relaxed, candid photos. And as usual, it didn’t disappoint. We spent about an hour wandering around as the sun was getting low in the late afternoon. I think that the setting, the light and Joshua and Darlene’s adorable sweetness toward one another resulted in some pretty beautiful images that captured that laid-back quality we were going for. Enjoy!
