When I look at these photos I’m reminded of life and the many changes it has to offer. I first met Melissa in middle school (a million years ago); she was such a loveable nerd. I was with her when she first met Kirk next to a jukebox at the Saloon in Encinitas, Ca. A couple years ago I photographed their wedding. Now celebrating her first mother’s day, I dragged her out to the beach for a maternity photos session. I’m so blessed to photograph all the milestones life has to offer.
