The most beautiful bump - fun maternity session in the East Village

While I always love photographing families in one of our city's lovely parks, I love it when we get to capture quintessential NYC. What we lack in fields and trees, we make up for in grit and graffiti. This session took place in the East Village, where there is certainly no shortage of super cool graffiti. And you can probably tell from the many images posted here that I was delighted with the results of this session. I must admit though, this couple stole my heart before we met when I learned of our shared backgrounds, having both moved to the Big Apple from the land down-under. I’m sure it wouldn’t shock anyone to learn, then, that the conversation flowed like a Margaret River merlot. I’m eternally grateful to this couple for trusting me to capture the beautiful connection and love they share at one of the most important points in their lives. It’s a privilege that I do not take lightly. And have you seen a more gorgeous mom-to-be? She has an almost ethereal pregnancy glow. I can tell Baby S is going to be the cutest of the cute!
