Andrew and Corey met me for a Maternity session on a perfectly overcast morning in Venice with their son, Salty. Salty is expecting a baby sister, and he is super stoked about it. Corey had not had any maternity images done when she was pregnant with Salty, so she was aching to have some beautiful bump images this time around, as well as some portraits of the three of them as they expect their new little darlin’. Andrew is a lifeguard at the Venice Breakwater, so it was only fitting that we shoot on the beach, and Salty takes right after his dad – it’s possible that they are even more comfortable in water than on land.
This session was very sweet for me. Andrew and I have known each other since childhood, and he’ll be happy to tell you that I was the genius who taught him how to tie his shoes. (He still uses my double loop method.) Seeing his as a father and hearing him call Salty “Son”; those moments were precious and dear. This is a special special family, and I so look forward to seeing and photographing them in August, when 3 have become 4.
