It was a pleasant surprise when we received the news that my sister-in-law was pregnant! We’re so excited that lil Jack will be getting a baby cousin! Chelsie & Robby are beyond excited to be bringing little Miss Ava Marie into this world. Chelsie has always been a beautiful lady but now she has that pregnancy glow to top it off! They are going to be awesome parents!
I got a lil carried away… they had to remind me that this was a maternity shoot not an engagement shoot! Lol oops!
They are the BIGGEST Michael Jackson fans, so I thought it would be awesome to incorporate him into their photoshoot!
Some people play Mozart for their babies, but this lil girl is going to come out doing the moonwalk!
Gotta luv that wind blown hair!!!
I’m so happy that we got to do a maternity/boudoir session! She looks gorgeous!
Chels & Robby, congrats on the start of this new chapter in your lives! I look forward to documenting the arrival & growth of baby Ava! Cant wait til she's here!!! xoxo
I'M JANELLE MARINA
Wife, Mama Shark, + Photographer.
Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
