Hoboken Maternity Photographer | spring baby on the way

I met up with two beautiful "parents-to-be" on Tuesday in Hoboken. We were so lucky to schedule the shoot when we did, because shortly after we finished, the rain began to come down. I had so much fun getting to know them, they truly are a fun couple. I think it shows through in their portraits--their happiness jumps right out you and I love it.

New Jersey Newborn Photographer | winter light

The other day I met up with my girlfriend who's due on Tuesday (can  you believe it?!). I packed my camera with me, thinking if she was feeling up to it- I'd love to snap a picture of her belly before the baby arrives. I was so happy that she was totally down with the idea, so before I left, we gathered our little ones and I snapped this shot of her in her front yard. It was bitterly cold out, my baby girl was strapped to the front of me the ergobaby (her head kept blocking my lens!). This mamma-to-be's son was running around the yard like a little wild indian. We may  not have gotten a perfect shot of her with her son, AND the bump...but we did capture this special picture. You'd never know the chaos that was going on behind the scenes! Love the wintery light shining down on her.

Connecticut Maternity Photographer | Facebook Biggest Fan Winnner!

This afternoon I met up with Tiffany and Matt for their maternity shoot. Tiffany won my "facebook biggest fan" contest a few months back, so she was given a free photo shoot (it pays to be my biggest fan!). They are due at the end of July - I was super excited to see these guys again. It seems like just yesterday we were shooting their 10/10/10 wedding at St. Clements Castle. Enjoy the shots from the day, and congratulations!

New Jersey Maternity Photographer | Garden Fun

Today I had the opportunity to photograph a super creative and fun couple for maternity photos. They are both musicians and were looking for something unique and different for their portraits, so we chose the Van Vleck gardens for the shoot. I figured, with all this rain we've been getting...the flowers must be blooming and the grass has got to be bright green. We were not disappointed at all by the grounds, and we lucked out because for the duration of our shoot, the sun was shining and the light was spectacular. As a result, I'm excited with our results. Here's a little preview, enjoy!

Jersey City Family Portraits | Early Morning Maternity Shoot

This morning I headed to Jersey City for an outdoor maternity photo shoot at Hamilton Park with Liisa and Josh. They were so much fun to work with (pretty obvious from their pictures!). Yellow and orange leaves were carpeting the ground and made for an awesome backdrop. I'm lovin' everything about these pictures!

Hoboken Newborn Photographer | Jill & Rob's Maternity Shoot

The other day I headed to Hoboken for a maternity shoot. The shoot was scheduled at 8AM, just as the sun was beginning to peak through the Manhattan skyline-it really was beautiful. I was so excited when I saw Jill and Rob walk over to me, they looked like they had just stepped out of a j crew catalog and their colors worked perfectly with our autumn surroundings. Here are some of the shots we took that morning, enjoy!

Manhattan Maternity Photographer | Central Park Shoot

maternity photoshoot in central park

Yesterday afternoon I met up with Amanda for a maternity shoot in her favorite park-Central Park! She's due in about a month and had such a perfect little bump to photograph. We wanted the pictures to reflect the time of year, and being that she is due in the fall- we played around with the vibrant leaves which were all around us. Stay tuned to see her baby next month when we do the newborn session!

I didn't even realize this at the time....but the big tree that Amanda is leaning against (above, right image) looks like the shape of a belly bump! What a fun find.

Manhattan Family Photographer | Juliana's Maternity Shoot

Manhattanfamilyphotographer2 This past Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph Juliana and her beautiful family. After seeing a photo of Juliana and her features, I was inspired to do something goddess-like. We went for a bunch of different looks, natural bedroom shots, urban landscape portraits, and garden-park stuff. Fortunately we had the magnificent makeup artistry of Kerry Crawford who completed the picture perfect vision. Here's a teaser of our time together....

Kerry Crawford did the makeup...always a great addition to a photo shoot. I'm loving the soft, natural makeup. It went perfectly with the overall feel of the day.....Manhattanbabyphotographer
