Like several of the wonderful couples I've had the joy of photographing, I first met Megan and Matt through music. Megan and I started working on a show together about a year ago. Little did I know that my lovely duet partner would soon become a wonderful friend! Several performances, holiday parties, and a shared birthday later, I am unbelievably happy to call Megan and her sweet husband, Matt, dear friends!
As I have gotten to know Megan and Matt over the last year, I have learned that they are two of the kindest souls you will ever meet. Their compassionate and generous hearts continually astound me. Megan and Matt are the type of people that would go to the ends of the earth and beyond for the people they love. That's why I am so excited to watch them become parents. I haven't the slightest doubt in my mind that they will make an incredible parenting team. They've got one very lucky little girl on the way!
The eucalyptus trees in La Jolla were the perfect backdrop for this Christmas-inspired maternity session. Of course, when I say Christmas, I mean the southern California version where the warm sunshine eases the sting of the bitter 60-degree cold. Nevertheless, their red and green outfits and warm sweaters sure got me in the holiday spirit! And if you're looking at these images from somewhere with "real" winter, Megan and Matt's sweet smiles are sure to warm you right up!
