My beautiful friend Nahal is expecting her first baby this September (it's a girl!) and I must say that she looks absolutely wonderful for being eight months pregnant. Nahal was one of my first girlfriends to get engaged and she is now one of my first girlfriends to become a mother! When she asked me to take her maternity photos, I gladly said yes – and quickly dusted off my Canon dSLR manual to get to know my camera a little better. I met her and Nahal and her husband Sean in Orange County on a perfectly cool summer day along Pacific Coast Highway. A marine layer clouded over the green hills of Newport Coast but that didn’t stop the expectant mother from glowing throughout the afternoon. Nahal and Sean make a beautiful couple and it is evident through these photos that the pair have so much love for each other... and there is no doubt that Baby Kayla will arrive and join forces to complete the picture-perfect family this fall. Congrats to Nahal and Sean! I can’t wait to meet their baby girl.
