Meet baby Capri || Maternity and Newborn Photography, Orange County

You know when you meet people and you just want to be besties right off the bat? That's this family! Not only are they the most gorgeous family ever but they're insanely fun, well mannered kiddos, and the sweetest hearts in the world. 

Mama's maternity session was a dream and would you believe there was a storm impending. We had to shoot fast!  Big sister and brother were seriously the best behaved kiddos, we were in and out within 20 minutes. Then it rained and rained.  Can you believe how gorgeous the light is?

Sweet tiny baby girl Capri came right on time and Lindsay had the absolute best advice I've ever been given...

“Oh Laurel! I’m so excited for you and even jealous!!! You get to experience the absolute BEST day of your life very soon. It’s dreamy and glorious and no matter how hard it is, it’s just the best day ever. I wish I could redo it over and over again just to experience that kind of joy again.” 

In just a few short sentences, she changed my entire outlook. Even after having my two babies, I didn’t look at it like this. Yes labor is hard, no one is denying that. Yes labor is tiring. And even more, labor can be scary buuut if you have this sense of calm and excitement towards it, it WILL make it more pleasant.  

So next time you see a very prego mama, don’t say “ugh I bet you’re SO ready” “you look ready to POP” “aren’t you miserable?” Share this with them instead. And for all you expecting mamas, may your labor this dreamy! ✨✨✨
