An old co-worker called me up and we put together a quick maternity shoot at Manresa State Beach near Watsonville. Jenn and her husband Jenn were welcoming their 2nd son into the fold – Amari.

And there is more of my black & white love below…

It was very adorable; when they asked AJ to ‘give Amari a kiss’ he always plopped one on his mother’s belly.PicMonkey Collage2 beach maternity - st germain photography00014 beach maternity - st germain photography00015

I just really like this one for some reason..beach maternity - st germain photography00017 beach maternity - st germain photography00019 beach maternity - st germain photography00022 beach maternity - st germain photography00023 beach maternity - st germain photography00026

The cell phone was an AJ favorite for the day, so dad started making funny faces behind me and AJ’s reaction is hilarious.PicMonkey Collage5 beach maternity - st germain photography00035 beach maternity - st germain photography00039 beach maternity - st germain photography00042 beach maternity - st germain photography00048 beach maternity - st germain photography00052 beach maternity - st germain photography00053 beach maternity - st germain photography00054 beach maternity - st germain photography00057 beach maternity - st germain photography00056

The real moments of child-rearing – comforting them during times of extreme duress, like staying out ‘too long’ on a sunny Saturday at the beach. This face happened when he was informed it was only ‘a little longer’.
