Maternity

Irvine Regional Park, Orange Maternity Session

One of the first things Alejandra said to me was “I need to have my session in September because this baby is definitely coming in October.” This baby already had determination and I’ll tell you a funny story further along this post about the baby’s middle name.

3 images side by side of an interracial couple (An asian male and a latina female) who is expecting. They are nose to nose in the first photo, the male is kissing the female on the temple in the 2nd photo, and they are both looking at her belly in the 3rd photo. He is wearing a dark blue button down with khakis and she is wearing a burgundy floor length dress.

Alejandra and I graduated from the same Master of Science program, although two different years! Fun fact: we also shared a hotel room/suite one year for a professional conference.

Alejandra & Kevin showed up ready to impress for their maternity session and to be completely honest, I was floored at how beautiful Alejandra looked. All my mama-to-be’s are so beautiful, each in their own way.

An image of an interracial couple (an Asian male and a Latina female). The male is hugging her from the side and kissing her temple. The female has her hand on her expectant belly.

Alejandra opted for a maroon floor-length maternity gown with the perfect flower crown, custom-made by Iris & Barry Blooms.

Two images stacked on top of each other of an interracial couple (an Asian male and a Latina female); they are touching foreheads with their eyes closed and both of them have their hands on her expectant belly in the first photo and the second photo is a close up show of just their torsos with their hands on moms expectant belly. He is wearing a dark blue button down with khakis and she is wearing a burgundy floor length dress.

Ready for the funny story? Alejandra shared on her Instagram that she couldn’t decide on a middle name for the baby but jokingly said that if the baby is a boy and born on the same date as her grandfather, she’d give him the middle name Fidel (like her grandfather). It was meant to be a joke! As the due date drew closer, it actually looked like this baby was going to be born on her grandfather’s birthday! It made for such a good laugh. Spoiler alert: baby boy wasn’t born the same day, so his middle name it’s Fidel… but it’s funny to think what could have been.

2 images side by side of an interracial couple (an asian male and a latina female) who are expecting; the first photo they are kissing and the second photo is black and white with dad behind mom and kissing her on the cheek while she holds her belly. The male is wearing a dark blue shirt with khakis and female is wearing a burgundy floor-length maternity gown.

Congrats on your beautiful baby boy (who is basically Kevin’s twin), you two!
