Alexandria's Oceanside Pier Maternity Session | San Diego Maternity Photographer

At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun.      

--Sandy Gingras

I love this quote. When I saw it, I immediately agreed with the sentiments. After reading it a second time, I realized that motherhood and raising babies is actually quite similar. You absolutely move from moods to moments. You can plan your days, have a list of to-dos, and be organized, but ultimately, your day goes as well as baby's mood. Motherhood has high tides and low, but if you learn to play in the waves, it is a beautiful journey.

Meet Alexandria. She has already given birth to a beautiful baby girl. She and her husband were stationed in Hawaii before moving to San Diego. I love that they wanted to incorporate the beach and a pineapple to incorporate that part of who they are. We chose the Oceanside Pier as our location because of the different visual elements. I love the sun shining through the pier, the waves crashing on the rocks, and the sunset we witnessed. Everything was beautful, just like this expectant mother.
