The Silva's Maternity & Newborn Session | Fresno, CA

Updated: Feb 11

This family is definitely close to my heart. My best friend/roommate's sister, Rachel, and her husband Joey are in such an exciting season of their lives--they've expanded their family! New dogs and a new baby.


I've known Rachel & Joey for years. I was there to show their dogs a livestream of their wedding, I held their first daughter after she came home from the hospital. I've spent hours on their comfy sectional just hanging out.


I was honored to capture their maternity session for the birth of their second daughter. We went with Wildwood Native Park, a small park just outside of Fresno, CA with reliable beauty and some stunning sunlight.

While we're at it--here's my best friend/roommate, Nicole, helping out with the session.

I always recommend families with littles to bring along to helper to entertain kids and assist in getting them to smile! It makes the session run so much more smoothly, and gives me some time to focus on mom and dad as well.


Just a few short weeks later, I was also able to come by for their lifestyle newborn session.

Capturing this season of Rachel and Joey's family was an honor. I'm so excited to watch them continue to learn, grow, and love together.
