Pregnancy Announcement Photos at Santa Monica Pier

Even though I am a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I still service other photo needs as well! I do family portraits, your professional headshots, maternity photos, just because photoshoots, and also pregnancy announcement photos! Cecilia and Justin were such an adorable duo and I had so much fun photographing them at Santa Monica Pier.

We met up early in the morning to avoid people traffic, and it was such a good idea. We had the beach pretty much to ourselves! Also, can you just appreciate their adorable jackets? Both of them are NBA fans, and also from different areas. They both live in Los Angeles now, but they still love their home teams. The Toronto Raptors Mommy and Golden State Warriors Daddy jackets were pure perfection. I love that LA has so many different people from all over the world.

I’ve done quite a bit of maternity photoshoots, but pregnancy announcement photos are more rare (for me). It is so fun being able to capture these moments, and such an honor to be the one photographing this special announcement photoshoot. I sincerely wish both Cecilia and Justin, and their baby nothing but the best!

Location: Santa Monica Pier | Santa Monica Beach
