Los angeles maternity photo session .

This beautiful mother is expecting her first baby and was very exited to have her maternity photos taken. We have met for a consultation and picked the most beautiful gowns for the session. Its easy to guess , its a boy!!! So we decided to stay with blues and nuturals. 

When she came to my Los Angeles studio, she was so happy and could not wait for the the photoshoot. After spending a few hours with a hair and make up artist  , she was even more gorgeous and ready to be my model. 

So as you can see she did really well and her face expresion tells it all, true hapiness and love for her little baby boy, who she can hold in her arms in 3 weeks. Such a beautiful mother and such a happy family. Can not wait to photograph them all togther soon.  


Please take a look of some highlights  of this session which took place in my  West Los Angeles studio  and going Santa Monica park.

Ode To Motherhood

Faith E. Pilato


they say the child chooses
the parent before
they are conceived

God gave me lists
of mothers' names
and pictures of them too.

I looked and looked
they all looked the same
and then I saw you.

Who is this woman?
I asked the Lord
She looks quite nice to me.
You have chosen well my child.
And he spoke these words to me.

She is kind and gentle
and very wise
and she will hold you
close to her
when you cry.

Her eyes will shine
when you take your first step
and smile at your delight.

She will show her pride
when you succeed
and pick you up
when you fail.

She will work hard
to give you the best she can
and rock you to sleep with weary time worn hands.

She will shelter you
on stormy days
and dry your fears away.
She will bask with you
in sunshine on
sunny summer days.

And when you are grown
like you soon will be
She will still be there
To comfort thee.

I choose her.
I told the Lord
For none like her
I've seen before.

And the day came
when I was born.
I had chosen well
of this I'm sure.

I picked you
above the rest
and because I did
My life is blessed



True hapiness and love
