R-V. Family and Maternity Session | New York Family Photographer

Back in April, I photographed this beautiful mama and her daughter as they shared with the world their excitement for the new baby girl that was on its way. Four months later, we met again for a family photo session. The sun setting over a serene and elegant garden overlooking the Hudson was perfect for this warm and bighearted family. 

Their new addition has arrived (this post came a bit late) and I will be sharing newborn photos shortly. All my love and best wishes to them. Love you guys.

It was such a pleasure to do this session for a dear friend and her family. I've known her since our pre-teen years and it's always fun and interesting to see how people evolve and grow to have families of their own. You realize after a while that they haven't changed much over the years, that just like you, they've experienced life and learned from it, shifting their priorities and perspectives along the way.  We no longer see each other much but, through our children we get a glimpse and reminder of who were, how we smiled and looked at life back then. My friend's daughter reminded me much of her in our school years and so did her son who, though quiet for much of the session, resembled the maturity and warmth of his mom. I can't wait to see the new addition to this happy and loving family, who will bring even more joy to their lives. My best wishes to them all.

When an old friend asked me to photograph her as she neared the end of her second pregnancy, I was more than happy to do it. Not only had I not seen her in a while, but I had yet to meet her first child. I wasn't sure where we would meet until a few days before. I figured a local park would be easy, comfortable; but then I remembered this garden that I had been dying to visit since I first heard of it last year. I was not sure what to expect but the minute I stepped into it's walls I was blown away. It was my first time there and definitely not my last. 

She was stunning in a spring dress while the boys looked great in their color coordinated outfits. I wish I had taken more pictures of the little guy but he was non-stop and on a mission to keep his hands in the pond. I had forgotten the beauty and curiosity of an almost two-year-old. 

It was wonderful seeing my friend after several years and an honor to be able to photograph her during such special time in her life. Wishing you all the best, dear.

This beautiful mother returned for her second photoshoot during this, her second pregnancy. I love the coral dress against the greens and browns of the background. Another time of day would've been preferable instead of high noon but, I think it worked out. Can't wait to meet her little one in the next coming weeks. Stay tuned for some newborn pics...
