A Yuba River Maternity Session

October 30, 2014

For those who live in and around Nevada City, the Yuba River (North, Middle and South Fork) is a majestic place; a common meeting spot for friends, an ideal swimming destination, and a place to go for solitude in order to regain strength and connect with nature...  I find an excuse to be at the river as often as possible, whether for play or for photo sessions, and I've found myself working there more and more often.  

Recently, when my sweet friend Cynthia was in the last stages of her pregnancy, we took a stroll down to the South Yuba River State Park to capture the magic of her pregnancy in a place she's treasured since she was a child.  She brought her daughter, Neva, along for our session and we had a fun afternoon together in the last days of Summer...

Cynthia has since then given birth to her second daughter, Huxley, and she is absolutely amazing.  I feel honored to have captured this amazing time in her life, and I'm anxious to watch our children grow up together in this beautiful place.  Thank you for yet another beautiful adventure at the river, Cynthia <3
