As a maternity photographer in Los Angeles, I come across many family stories. I was particularly moved by this story of hope.
I first met Pearl and Matt in 2016 when the two came for my mini vacation session. They were trying to receive at this time so it could possibly have been their last vacation as a family of two and wanted to document this … although receiving would prove to be more difficult than expected.
Two years later (exhausting any option) they started IVF and wanted me to document their journey.
(You can see an impromptu interview that I put together during their maternity shoot on my IGTV!)
I have had the honor of documenting two vacation seasons now for this adorable family of three, and I am moved every time I see them.
The biggest lesson I learned from them is that whatever your journey, whatever your outcome, you will embrace it. I saw how it made them love and appreciate each other and focused more on each other than on the outcome. They were open and positive and ready to accept whatever the outcome.
Matt and Pearl, Luca is so happy to have such wonderful parents! Thank you for your openness over the years and for trusting me to document and spread your story of hope.
Contact me today to book your session – let’s celebrate your story!
