Michelle's Foggy Ventura Pier Maternity Session
Posted By Holly Castillo Photography on Friday 01st October 2021
Sometimes things that don't go to plan end up going even better. I will admit that I was super nervous driving into Ventura for Michelle's shoot. In Simi Valley and all the way to Oxnard it was sunny and clear, and we had timed our session for golden hour. All of a sudden driving past Oxnard the thickest marine layer of fog I have ever seen appeared. We met at the Ventura Pier and I asked if we wanted to reschedule, Michelle said "It can't be that bad right?" Mostly I felt bad that it was cold, but she said because she's pregnant she's hot all the time anyway so it didn't matter. Truer words, I'm still hot 2.5 years after having my son, but I digress.
I had the privilege of working with Michelle and her husband Steven for their elopement last summer in 2020. They eloped with a small group of family and friends at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. You can see that gallery by clicking here
. I really wanted to deliver good images for Michelle, so we toughed it out in the fog, and it ended up so dreamy, that I wished I had planned for it to begin with. Fog maternity sessions are the new hot thing, you heard it here first.
