NYC maternity session at the stylish & sophisticated W Hotel

I was lucky enough to meet this charismatic duo on their recent trip to NYC from one of my favorite states, Colorado. They reached out before their trip as they're expecting and were keen to beautifully document this special period of their lives. I couldn't have been happier. Although they frequent NYC for business several times a year, this trip was all about fun on their babymoon. We spent the morning East Side - we started out at the stylish and sophisticated W Hotel and then made our way along 5th Avenue and into Central Park (see here for another East Side maternity session I shot earlier this year). Apart from my taking them on an unintended detour to the West side of the park, this session went off without a hitch. Of course this session wouldn't have been as wonderful as it was if the beautiful mom-to-be wasn't as photogenic and gorgeous as she is. I've never seen a prettier pregnancy glow. It's beyond certainty that their babe is going to be the most adorable in town and with two of the loveliest parents to be, their babe is clearly one of the luckiest around!
