What do you get when you mix French with Spanish? The most beautiful family with the most beautiful languages spoken. Ludo, Claudia and little Olivia were beaming with the idea that their newest little member would be joining them soon! As soon as I saw this adorable family for Claudia’s maternity session, I was immediately drawn to them, like we had been friends for ages! Little Olivia stole my heart with her cute dandelion dress and sweet smiles! 

As we made our way across Little Corona Beach (one of my absolute favorite beach locations), we stopped to capture some memories, chat about life, and smile and laugh at sweet little Olivia playing. Ludo and Claudia moved from San Francisco for work and to start a family in Orange County. Their love for one another, for Olivia and for their new baby GIRL was so sweet to witness! When Claudia and I would venture off, Ludo would take Olivia to explore the amazing tide pools. The tide was so low that it made the gorgeous little tide pools come to life. They were filled with mini hermit crabs, sea anemones and baby fish! We happen to stumble upon a heart made from rose petals, left by a previous photo session. Olivia was in love and was beaming with excitement. Claudia mentioned that flowers are one of Olivia’s most favorite things. We captured some special moments of Olivia, Claudia and her beautiful baby bump with the rose-petal heart. We were so fortunate to catch the most beautiful sunset at the end of our session! The sky lit up in cotton candy colors and it was pure magic! 

Claudia, Ludo and Olivia, I’m so thankful to have met you all! I’m so excited for you and the new adventures that await your growing family. Congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your baby girl! She will be showered with so much love!
