To be expecting our first child is exciting, but the anticipation is heightened when a dear friend is traveling along the same journey. I had the pleasure of capturing my dear friend, Amanda, during her last pregnancy. Now little Sophia and her sister Karina are expecting a baby brother! Our portrait session led us to Rose Canyon Open Space near the 52. It is a wonderful place for photography although it is a bit of a hike. Both Amanda and I were in our third trimester so the going got a bit tough, but we, slowly but surely, made it along the decline and path of the shaded trail. Amanda is also a photographer so I aimed to please a fellow colleague as best as I could. You can find samples of Amanda’s work on Facebook at Amanda Ortega Photography.
