Disneyland Maternity Session – I love this session! Not only is it Disney, but it’s with some of my closest friends! Martin & Nicki were blessed with Jeremy (really awesome kid, always smiling), just over a year ago, and as of last week, they’re now blessed with another, Ella. A couple weeks prior to Ella’s arrival we photographed this maternity session at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, Ca. When Nicki was pregnant with Jeremy, we did their session inside the park (Jeremy’s Maternity Session), but with a family of 4 to worry about, these long time Disney lovers had to give up their annual passes. No matter, Downtown Disney, the Disneyland Hotel, and The Grand California created a fantastic setting!
Of course we had to make sure Ella had a set of Mickey ears to match her brother. Once that was taken care of, we started in a great lounge area at the Disneyland Hotel (after a group shoot with goofy), followed by some shots in front of a castle mural, then outside with the sorcerer’s hat, then some fantastic shots inside The Grand Californian (I love this place, I was married here).
I’m looking forward to Ella’s newborn session! Congratulations Martin, Nicki, Jeremy, & Ella!
On a technical note: This is the second time I got to use my new Rapid Box Speedlight Softbox by Westcott. Love the soft light it creates!
