Cowell Family: Maternity (Part 1)

This shoot was intimidating for me.  I’m sure that sounds super weird to you considering this is my wife and daughter, but there is something about shooting my own spouse and child that puts extra pressure on me.  I guess it is because my “mind’s lens” sees so many different layers of beauty of my ladies, not just their obvious surface beauty.  Therefore, I feel a certain obligation to be able capture the beauty that I see that no one else can see like I do, but with a camera that only captures two dimensions.    Maybe this is ridiculous and unneeded pressure to put on myself, but at the same time I have so much pride welled up over these two amazing humans that I want to do them adequate justice when sharing images of them to the world.

Well, here is my best attempt.  Thanks to the incredible talent of Erica from 10.11 Makeup, my lovely wife was looking super fine.  We found a fun new secret spot in Orange County that embraced a slightly more moody essence and spent some fun time together as a family of 3 (which won’t be the case for much longer).  Hope you enjoy!
