A couple’s journey | Baby Announcement | Laguna, Ca

Share It On Your Social Media!

I have always said that when clients come back again, it is one of the biggest compliments. It couldn’t be anymore true, but I love it even more when those specific clients become friends.

It’s been a few years of capturing Mike and Marissa and when Marissa contacted me for another session and of course I was excited.

We ended up having to reschedule to a later date, but I wasn’t expecting the most exciting text when we had to reschedule.

“We Just found out we are pregnant, so if you’d be willing to take announcement photos for us.. *heart eyes*

UUHHHH… YESS!!! If I remember right, I screamed a little and instantly told David! Hahah! David and I were so excited (we still are) for them! They are going to be such great parents!

I feel like it was just yesterday when we were having lunch at Chipotle talking about babies last January!

We took these photos in December in Laguna Beach, CA, so Mike and Marissa didn’t know the gender during the session.

Well, they found out a few weeks ago that they are expecting a baby GIRL!! 😀 I can just see how Marissa is going to be with a girl and Mike just spoiling that girl! (She will be a daddy’s girl for sure 😉 )

As always, I loved photographing them and it meant SO much to be part of this exciting journey for them! I am so excited for them to welcome their baby girl come July!
