Salton Sea Family Maternity Shoot | Palm Springs Maternity Photographer
June 20, 2014
So my client had the idea of doing her family and maternity portrait session at the Salton Sea. At first I thought...that's interesting...nobody looks forward to going there. But then I thought some more about how I used to love going there. Back in the day when it was cool. My family and I would fish and camp at the sea, and just have fun. Why couldn't we do that again, but with Delphyn and her family? How great would that be for their 4 year old daughter Kiya to have these memories with her family?
So, Jenny (my associate photographer) and I drove out to the Salton Sea to find a perfect spot at the perfect time. The first trip...yuck! Smelly, very smelly and there was this layer of moisture that hit us like a brick wall. We couldn't stand to be there for more than 10 minutes.
We decided to make another trip the next day, but this time we went to the complete opposite side of the Salton Sea. It had complete opposite results. Hardly no fishy smell, there was sand to squish our toes in, and the view was perfect!
This photo session was so lovely and everyone was in good spirits. This one definitely goes into one of my top 10 memorable photo shoots.
Congrats to this sweet family for their new baby girl who will shall be making her debut very soon.
