This maternity session at Griffith Park was so fun to photograph! I’ve been emailing back and forth with Terry for a while now trying to decide on a location between us that would work well. I love that we decided on Griffith Park. I’ve photographed sessions there several times now but I feel like I find a new little spot I love every time I go.
The trees were loosing their leaves and the fall colors were so beautiful. I love fall time for that very reason. It seems as though just when a person is sick of one season the next season is just around the corner to bring a refreshing change to life. Fall time brings in new colors and fresh crisp air and it’s such a beautiful time of year for photos. You can avoid the high temperatures that we usually have in Southern California and you get the pretty oranges and yellows in your photographs.
We started off the Kay’s maternity session in the colorful trees just at the edge of the parking lot. It was the perfect spot to capture the fall colors in the background! Their three year old boy had a cracker that he decided should never leave his hands so we made up a game. Hide the Cracker! This was the game of the day and he totally loved it. I kept telling him to hide the cracker and then when I questioned how I couldn’t find the cracker we got some pretty cute smiles and giggles out of him. Such a cute little boy!
We ventured on a few trails around the area and then headed to the Griffith Observatory for a few more photos with the city-scape in the background. It was a beautiful evening and so pretty to see the sunset while overlooking the city.
Congrats Terry & Gina on your new little one arriving soon! Thank you for allowing me to document this beautiful stage of your lives! – Megan
