Oh, what a joy to be back with the Xenakis family again! We absolutely adore Mathew and Delshad – they are warm, caring, and have a contagious enthusiasm for life – one that they’ve definitely passed on to their little one, Steliana! When they called us again to capture this precious next phase in life, we couldn’t wait.
We began in the beautiful Eucalyptus Grove in La Jolla, and had our fair share of giggles with little miss Steliana! It was SO special to see her so grown up (check out her newborn session a couple of years ago) and to see how Delshad and Matt’s love for her has grown exponentially. This spunky girl is super excited to become a big sister, and has been reading plenty of books with mom and dad to prepare for the arrival of her little sister.
After being on bed rest for Delshad’s first maternity session, she and Matt were hoping for the beach this time! Scripps Pier was the perfect place for more dreamy portraits of this glowing mama, and we just swoon with the way Matt looks at her and plants a smooch on her cheek. This family pours all their love into each other, and we cannot wait to see that love multiply with the arrival of their next Little Miss!
