Castro Valley Maternity Photographer: You guys, this session was a dream!!! It was a perfect combination of yummy golden light, mesmerizing sky and the sweetest human beings! Melissa had reached out to me asking about my availability to do a maternity family session and I am so glad I had the opportunity to photograph her family!

Melissa and Jordan were supposed to be in Oahu with their daughter Riley to celebrate their wedding anniversary and baby moon but had to cancel due to the current situation and pandemic. They decided to book a session with me to commemorate these special occasions before transitioning into a family of four! Take a look below to see some highlights from their session and a little bit about them!

“My husband, Jordan and I met in high school and have known each other for almost 20 years. We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary this month. After having our daughter Riley almost three years ago, we’ve decided that we will do everything we can to take all the adventures and make as many memories we can while we grow as a family. We love to travel when we can and hope to continue to travel and make new memories after our second baby arrives.” -Melissa

“I was going for a very whimsical, light and airy feel for our photos. Sunset photos have always been my absolute favorite and after seeing Shefali’s work with natural light and that golden hour glow I knew I had to contact her!” -Melissa

“We wanted to leave our photos to a professional as we did our own maternity photos on a beach the first time around. We knew that having a 2 year old would make doing our own photos a little difficult. Plus our photos by Shefali went above and beyond our expectations!” -Melissa

“Our experience was easy going and the hour went by quickly. Our daughter was only cooperative for about 30 minutes but Shefali still captured some amazing photos of her smiling and doing her thing.” -Melissa

“Our daughter Riley is a very courageous and playful girl. She loves singing and anything Disney! We’ve recently taken up baking and gardening. You can always find her helping mommy in the kitchen or helping daddy in the garden. She loves to help us with anything we do!” -Melissa

“Our photos turned out to be beyond what we expected. My husband and I used the words ‘magic was captured’ because that is how amazed we were with the outcome. We 100% would love to use Shefali for family photos in the future. Our friends and family are also blown away by the photos that we’ve had many questions on how we found Shefali!” -Melissa
