Maternity Photos: Malibu Creek State Park {Brooke Borough Photography}

I have known the lovely Brooke Borough of Brooke Borough Photography since she was a junior high student and hung out with my little sister — they both were adorably awkward and hilarious growing up, so it’s so much fun to see what a lovely and talented woman she’s become! (…still waiting for my sister to grow out of the awkward phase… just kidding TayTay! 😉

After seeing her work with Tanisha’s maternity photos, I knew that I had to have her take my maternity photos one day.  Funny story actually — in December, I was in the early stages of my pregnancy, trying to hide it and therefore pretending like I was drinking wine at a friend’s wedding, when I spotted Brooke (she was assistant photographer for the wedding).  I was so excited to nail her down for photos that I almost spilled the beans to her right then and there!  Luckily, I held it in until I saw her again at Tanisha’s Super Bowl party and made her then promise to hold a spot for us 🙂

Brooke Borough is an incredible wedding photographer, and on occasion, will also take maternity photos.  Now that so many people have found out about her insane talent, she has become one of the top go-to wedding photographers in the Conejo Valley (in addition to Marianne Wilson Photography whom we just featured on our blog last week)!  Needless to say, she is very busy, so we were stoked that she could carve out some time for us.

Brett and I haven’t had any professional photos taken since our wedding over 7 years ago (!!!), but Brooke quickly made us feel at ease, which resulted in some great photos that were truly “us.”  Here are some of our favorite shots, taken just down the road from our house at Malibu Creek State Park! Talk about #local 🙂
