Cristal’s Maternity Session in West Tucson

Mini Sessions

Sep 28, 2022

Cristal, Julian, and Julianise are one of the sweetest families you will meet. I’ve done their family photos for the past two years, so it was amazing to see them again for a maternity session

One thing I love about this family is that they genuinely care about people. At our last mini session, I hit a pothole and destroyed my tire. Luckily, they were behind me and Julian hopped out with no hesitation and changed my tire! All before their session.

They even stayed with me afterwards while I was waiting for my next clients, just to make sure that I was able to go home. 

During this maternity session, they were just as sweet as they eagerly await the arrival of a baby girl! 

The gorgeous decorations were made by Cristal’s sister, Corina, who is the owner of She’s Pretty Crafty.  They reused them for the baby shower, which happened the next day!

The theme of the shower was “Baby in Bloom.” How cute is that! Corina’s wooden flowers were stunning as always, in vibrant colors. They look so real! She makes all kinds of decorations, from arches to boutonnières, crowns, and bouquets! 

They’re all wonderful human beings. I will cry the day Julian can no longer give piggyback rides. We’ve done it every year, and I anticipate this pose for next year as well. 

It was so windy during our maternity session. As you can tell, it was a stormy night! It did rain a little during our session, but it was just a few drops. 

I can’t believe how lucky we were with the weather! We went from dark clouds to a rainbow, and finished the session with a cotton candy sky. It was like mother nature switched out the background for every stunning shot!

Congratulations on your bundle of joy! I’m so happy for your family, and I can’t wait to meet the newest member of your family. 

Let's Connect!

I can't wait to hear more about the memories you're looking to capture.
