The Prego Expo in San Diego, CA 2022

Calling all soon-to-be parents, the Prego Expo is coming to San Diego soon! When you are expecting a child, the amount of information, items needed (or not needed), new products on the market, and all of those bells and whistles that come with, can be exhausting trying to wade through. At an expo, all of the top of the line products and resources are at your fingertips. From specialists to car seat safety and strollers, this is an in-person event you won’t want to miss. As a San Diego newborn photographer, having the Prego Expo coming to San Diego is a fabulous resource for all of my soon-to-be parents!
