So perhaps I’m weird but I find myself so drawn to landscapes that aren’t the obvious “pretty”. I love buildings that are a bit dilapidated and rough around the edges. Worn paint, old doors, aged wood, forgotten parking lots, historic steel bridges. I just love photographing soft, pretty images in an industrial space. Add in some sun flare and you have spoken to my soul.
Matt and Caitlin chose Downs Park in Pasadena as the backdrop for their maternity session. And of course, me being me, I opted to start the session of at a small random bridge at one of the park’s back entries. I loved the angles and lines it created for their photos. This of course was followed by one of the park’s random empty car lots. Eventually, we made it over to the gorgeous beach area with tall grasses for days. It was the perfect, eclectic mix of backdrops to photograph the love and excitement they had over their little one on the way.
