Ruork Family // A Destination Maternity Session

I met Michelle when we were both pregnant with our oldest babes! Eleanor is only a couple months older than my Owen! We connected online in a due-date type mom's group and I first flew out to California for their family portraits almost two years ago! It is so hard to believe it was that long--time flies! So when Michelle announced to me and the rest of the "Mom Group" that Baby #2 was on the way, I just about burst with excitement for this sweet family!

It is obvious Michelle and Brian know my style well! Their outfits paired with the gorgeous California coast was just perfection. I love the pops of color from Michelle's hair and Eleanor's romper!

Eleanor and Brian have such a precious bond--they are two peas in a pod together! They were just in their own little world together giggling and playing. In my opinion, Dads always photograph best when they are playing with their kiddos!

This sweet spot in Pacifica was anything but a smooth road to get to, but it was well worth it! At one point, we had to park the minivan so Brian could navigate the rest of the way up the EXTREMELY bumpy parking area. Michelle chose it for the rocky cliffs and I do not think I could have found a more perfect location myself. There was this little path right by the parking lot with these gorgeous rolling hills, so of course we had to stop there for a couple shots as well! Thank you so much again, Brian, Michelle, & Eleanor! I cannot wait to meet the newest little addition!
