Manning Maternity Session

Manning Maternity Session at Torrey Pines Beach
Torrey Pines Beach Maternity Session

Beach maternity sessions are officially my favorite sessions! Especially when they involve photographing baby bumps, walking barefoot on the sand, and breathing in that fresh, Southern California ocean breeze. Yes, please! Jeremy and Sarah love health and fitness and enjoy spending time outdoors, so you can imagine the exhilirating rush of excitement that swept over me when Sarah told me they would love to have their session at Torrey Pines Beach!

As their session date approached, I kept a close eye on the weather since Southern California had been getting a couple inches of rain. I prayed God would keep the clouds at bay for their session, so you can imagine my excitement and relief when the rain clouds were nowhere in sight that day. Torrey Pines Beach was spectacularly picturesque, showing warm and soft hues of pinks, purples and yellows. God answered my prayers and gave Jeremy and Sarah the perfect sky backdrop for their session!

Their soon-to-arrive little miracle is their first child and they are waiting to find out the gender until the baby's born. Talk about eager anticipation! I love that they're waiting to find out the baby's gender! Sarah and Jeremy, I can't wait to meet your little one!


“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

"We loved how much Karla encouraged and coached us. We are by no means used to being in front of a camera but Karla put us at ease and made us feel like models. The first shot she took she laughed with excitement, making us feel confident in front of the camera and also in her ability to capture us beautifully. I am so happy with our experience. Karla was extremely professional from the beginning. She was thorough in evaluating my husband's and my desires for the shoot, descriptive in suggestions for outfits, intentional with setting the perfect time and date for our shoot, gladly willing to reschedule per our request, quick to respond with questions regarding our contract, and finished editing before the 2 week deadline she had guaranteed. So not only was she excellent in person during the shoot, she also has a high level of integrity with running the business aspect of her company as well."
