Bonnie and Benjamin were the very first people I ever photographed years ago. You should have seen me. Poses sketched. Locations mapped. Outfits planned. I was nervous. They trusted me. I was working in finance, but my real love was photography. I am forever grateful for that first session and for their enthusiasm through the years.
Ben and Bon have seen my evolution, and I have seen theirs. I have been able to capture their love story. This is the greatest gift I can ever give people; the gift of memories. And now with baby on the way in less than a month, I am super excited to share their love in this amazing time. I photographed this session out in the Hamptons with the beautiful evening light. Aren't they gorgeous?
p.s. That second shot with the sun shining through is pure magic to me!
p.p.s. I will have to do a separate post on the evolution of our shoots. But click here for a fun one we did about two years ago!
I have photographed Jaime before. She is an athlete. She is stunning. She is fun. She is amazing. But to see Jaime pregnant just knocked me over. There is nothing like that sweet, calm, mommy-to-be aura that glows from pregnant women. I can't get over it.
When I walked into Sarah and Erik's house, the first thing I saw was a giant chalkboard with these words:
Laugh a lot
And be kind to each other
These words are words they believe. Words they respect. I connected instantly with what they had written; I want to do something like this in my apartment so I am always reminded of the little things that matter.
We lucked out with the weather and the incredible colored leaves outside Sarah and Erik's house. I love meeting a couple right before baby comes and seeing the love they share. The excitement. The anticipation. They are a beautiful couple. They are down to earth, funny, and genuinely kind. I can't even wait to meet the little one!
Becky and Dan are expecting a little girl any time now! I was so happy to get out to Central Park and photograph Becky! It's always so special to see a mother right before baby is born. Becky, you are so incredibly beautiful. Thanks for sharing such special moments with me. I cannot even wait to shoot the little one when she arrives.
When I arrived at Amanda and Doug's apartment to do a quick follow up shoot (she was due in a few days) before baby, Amanda had started her contractions. So we actually got a shoot of her belly right before baby boy came into the world! Amanda is so gorgeous. I can't believe how incredible she looks. Congratulations!
Nicola and Keith are two of my dearest friends! Isn't Nicola just stunning pregnant? She is glowing! Last year I photographed them for Nicola's 30th Birthday! What a change one year has made! They are due at the end of March. So soon. I can't wait to meet baby boy! Lots of love, xoxo
I had the pleasure of photographing Amanda, Doug, and their little one last week! Amanda and Doug are so incredibly kind, open, and hilarious! We had so much fun showing off Amanda's baby bump! She is stunning. I cannot even wait to meet baby in a few months!
