Santa Monica Pinup Momma | Maternity Photography

Bee + Chad reached out to me to capture Bee's maternity photos in a fun and new way. They gave me full creative control and just told me to run with it. So off we ran to Santa Monica, California, for their vintage-styled maternity session at the iconic Santa Monica Pier. We had a blast watching the local entertainment, soaking up that California sunshine and playing in the waves.

I decided to give Bee a full on Pinup-styled makeover and incorporate her favorite pregnancy snacks into our photos. When I asked what she's been craving, she didn't skip a beat to let me know she was loving double stuffed oreos! So I made sure they made an appearance. I styled her in some beautiful maternity swimwear from Motherhood Maternity and an adorable maternity dress from my gown rental collection.

Here are a few highlights from during our day together from sunshine to sunset!
