Matraya and Chris | BABY Bump | Palm Springs Maternity Photography

My second maternity session in as many days.. this time, at the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve just north of Palm Springs. Sam and I frequent this oasis in the desert several times a year because it has a family friendly trail for little ones, but offers more challenging hikes for those with more experience. When Matraya mentioned to me that she was calling from the Palm Springs area, this was the first place I thought of.. turns out, this place is special to her and her family as well… must be meant to be!

Matraya is expecting her daughter in just a few days, but you would never know it! Both Chris and Matraya were incredible to get up so early to beat the desert heat, to brave the annoying bugs, and to listen to my dorky requests (hey, my dorkiness works for me).. in the end, it was worth every bumblebee and acacia thorn.. because the light was so amazing, as were they! I’m sure they will be glad they have these beautiful photographs to share with their daughter.

I absolutely love this shot of Matraya.. she is glowing….must be love!

I love that this next photo has one sprig of wildflower in focus!

Matraya and Chris, I can’t thank you enough for trusting me today. Get plenty of rest these next couple of days, and I’ll be seeing you again.. really soon! 🙂 Enjoy your slideshow!
