Maternity Photographer – Appel Family – Ashley McNamara – San Diego Photographer

Love my clients. Especially the goofy ones and the Appels are super goofy

Dave and Shannon are expecting their first baby, well,  their first baby of the human variety… their first “child” is pictured below and I hope that Bosco the Boston Terrier didn’t keep a tab of how many times I said “treat” to get his attention.. about 387 times.

Shannon was  little nervous about her maternity shoot but she is one HAWT momma! I told you that you would look fabulous!

Introducing Dave AKA Baby Daddy AKA Art Director AKA Underwear Model.. Dave felt exceptionally uncomfortable in front of the camera except for when he was posing himself … When I finally let him off the hook  about 5 Min’s later he shows up in a shirt that says “baby momma” (like the movie) on it… apparently he got over his camera fright. I took the picture and threatened to post it on the blog.. you were || this close pal.  😉
