Whoever has said that Los Angeles is a “concrete jungle” has clearly never been to Griffith Park Observatory! We met up with Bethany and Jason (a previous La Vida Couple: engagement | wedding) over at the Griffith Park Observatory for some maternity photos recently and love the “wilderness” that surrounded us.We chose to lead Bethany and Jason down into the canyon just below the observatory to take advantage of the pretty light, the nature, and the privacy! Boy, was it crowded up there in the main area.Both Bethany and Jason did a great job of falling right into “La Vida Mode”… they knew exactly how to act in front of us and to just be themselves (which included a lot of funny remarks).Bethany wanted to make sure that we photographed this chalkboard sooner, rather than later. Bethany spent the better part of an hour (if not more) to get the spacing juuuuuuuuust right.We really were treated with a nice ball of light that glowed EVERYWHERE that day. Thanks, Los Angeles!Ah yes. We remember those beautiful blue eyes!Bethany’s been collecting all kinds of goodies for Sweet Cheeks’ arrival, so naturally, we had to bring some of them into their session!
These two are so sweet with each other… they’re going to be a great example of love to their kiddo.
Bethany is absolutely stunning and such a natural in front of the camera too.After playing around down in the canyon, we walked up the hills to find the last bit of sun before it dipped down for the evening.And while many (MANY!) people were touring the outside structure of the observatory, we were patient and found a few private spots to capture with these two (well, three) with a little nighttime glamour.And we love how Bethany and Jason wanted to do a stairs shot of some kind to carry through from one of their favorite wedding images we took. So cool!
Bethany and Jason, we are so grateful to follow you down the path of life and we CANNOT wait to meet baby cheeks! That will also mean that the four of us can enjoy a glass of wine together as well, yes yes?
