Sweet, sweet Aurora! Talk about a doll baby. We first sat down with the parents of Aurora during our Baby Wishes Maternity shoot with Melissa McClure Photography. They were both anxious to meet their baby, you could see it in their eyes. I couldn’t wait to film Aurora as a newborn and was excited to meet her for the first time. Dad was awesome, making sure she was taken care of during the whole shoot. Mom was radiant and beaming from ear to ear. There is no doubt that Aurora will grow up loved!
It seems like Gender Reveal Parties are popping up everywhere. They are a fun way to put a surprise in the announcement of a pregnancy. We took the Gender Reveal to a new level – a video! Of course! This one includes the older siblings working on an art project with both blue and pink paint. Which will it be? You will have to watch to find out!

It’s time to announce the winner of the Ultimate Prize Pack for the Most Deserving Parent. The big giveaway includes these fabulous prizes from businesses in San Diego:
After a week of nominations, we narrowed down the submissions to just one. It was the most difficult decision we had to make. Every parent is truely wonderful in their own way and each story we read touched our hearts… but one stood out the most.
Drum roll please….
Congratulations to Missy L.! Missy was nominated by her husband, who writes, “My wife is the most amazing, selfless, caring person I know. We’ve been through so much this last year, and her courage and hope not only inspire me, but thousands of other couples and women.”
Because Missy wants to inspire others, she has allowed us to share a part of her story. She began starting her family in 2011 and was devastated with a miscarriage at ten weeks. Determined, Missy and her husband began again and had success with another pregnancy, a baby boy. Soon after the news, they began buying the baby essentials and decorating the nursery with great enthusiasm. Unfortunately, they were not prepared for the news of another loss during an ultrasound at twenty weeks. After much grieving, they began a third pregnancy and are awaiting a baby boy due in August!
We can not wait to meet Missy and Bryan. Watch our blog posts for their maternity and newborn sessions in the upcoming months.
