Justyna + Angelo Maternity Session

They say rain on the day of a special occasion is good luck, but when I arrived at Baker Beach in San Francisco to meet up with Angelo and Justyna, and saw that the skies were just opening up, good luck was the last thing on my mind. Fortunately, one thing light rain also makes for is amazing soft light. About halfway through the session, the sun came out. The change in weather made for 2 distinctly different but beautifully lit photo sets, despite us only having done one session. And in true San Francisco fashion, we were joined during our session by a nude sun bather, casually catching some sun (...and rain...?) on a Saturday afternoon. Can you tell in the photos he was creeping behind us?
