I’ve been doing self portraits every other week to document this final pregnancy and last weeks was so magical and came out exactly how I wanted and above my expectations of doing self portraits! Here is 24 weeks, a little over half way done and growing by the second it seams. I feel like I was showing a little extra since these were done the day after Thanksgiving where I think I devoured about 34 meals over a one and a half day period.
I want to take someone here to shoot soon, before they mow it down! SO lets set up a session for you, your family or your sweet little one – you won’t be disappointed.

I had the pleasure of getting to capture Moe & Ignace at Avalon Nature Preserve and Duck Pond in Stony Brook a few weeks ago. Moe thought that she had missed her chance at 37 weeks pregnant to do maternity photos but took a chance and gave me a call. I was so happy I was available to squeeze them into my schedule. They were both so fun to work with and Ignace was quite a funny guy! We decided on an evening session and the park was absolutely beautiful when we arrived. The golden hour sun made all the fall colors really pop and shine. After a little walk though the park we decided to get Moe into one of the dresses I have and do just a few more near the pond. She was STUNNING!! And we even had some guest waddle into a couple of shots.

It may have been early August and hot as ever but this session was just ready to say “Hello Fall!”. It was my first time coming to the Nature Preserve in Blue Point on the south shore of Long Island but it didn’t disappoint in any way!!! I had hoped to have gone closer to the spring to check it out when it was FULL of wildflowers but I just didn’t make it, next year. Thanks to a wonderful friend for the suggestion to check it out – I am still trying to find spots that I love and this if defiantly one of them.
I often gravitate towards settings with wide open fields and neutral colors so that each client can have the chance to wear great colors. This spot was perfect – I can’t wait to use the space again for more sessions, especially since it is constantly changing with the seasons.
This momma was one of my contest winners and decided to do a maternity session with me. She was just so beautiful and had such style and loved that we were able to get a few different looks with just one outfit. She rocked her session and shined just as bright as the evening sunset. I can’t wait to meet her new baby boy in just a few short weeks for his newborn session.
