Pregnancy announcement photos in DUMBO Brooklyn

I love it when clients bring their own personality and spunk to a session, and that’s definitely how this couple rolls. First things first though, it is obvious that these two want a well-documented family life. They were determined to get professional images so they could announce their pregnancy to their loved ones in their own style. When I met mama-to-be L, she blew me away with her sweet words. She said she had been looking for a family photographer all day and got lots of referrals from her friends, but it wasn’t until she stumbled across my site that she knew she’d found her photo gal. Such a huge compliment, right?! When she called me to inquire about my availability, she was bursting with ideas and excitement. Her and her hubby are pizza lovers, so much so that they have matching pizza tattoos (see image below), and they knew they had to incorporate pizza into their photo session. Too easy! So we did exactly that. Personally, I think pizza helped lighten the mood. Not everyone loves being in front of a camera lens (including yours truly) but sitting around and eating slices can really help you mellow out. Plus, it’s a unique idea – I don’t think anyone has done a pizza announcement in the history of mankind… Ever! But it’s not just their creativity – these two enjoy an adventurous life: they told me they are about to head to Brooklyn to get another tattoo together. But get this… The way they are selecting their next tattoo is gutsy. There is a gumball machine at the tattoo parlor and you pay for it to spit out a plastic ball that has an image of the tattoo you are going to get and that's the tattoo you must get. Not only that, but you cannot instruct the tattoo artist on color or style. These two have more guts than I do and it is very clear to me their gorgeous little guy or gal is going to have the same adventurous spirit and zest for life - lucky kid! I just wish I was going to be East Side for their next photo session!
