My Best Friend's Maternity Photo Session - Chandler, Arizona

Hey there, mamas-to-be. I'm glad you're here.

Picture this: the Arizona desert, still lush and green from all the crazy rain we got in 2023, with the ground painted in these rich red, gold, and green hues. It was like something out of a dream or painting. And guess what? I got to capture all that magic in a maternity photo session for my best friend!

Now, you might wonder why I, a SoCal Inland Empire family photographer, ended up in Chandler, Arizona. Well, when your bestie's expecting her last baby, you go wherever she needs you, right? So off I went, camera in hand, ready to freeze these precious moments in time. We've known each other since high school, but this was the first time I was able to do a pregnancy photoshoot for her. I got myself out to Arizona to spend a quick 36 hours with her.

As the sun started to set, casting this warm, golden glow over the desert, it was like the universe was putting on a show just for us. Against that stunning backdrop, my friend glowed with the anticipation of motherhood and her last birth, and I couldn't help but get swept up in the beauty of it all.

Take a look at how beautiful she is <3
