maternity: axiously awaiting rocco

I was fortunate enough to work with Melissa of Pampered Bride Weddings and her husband Jay.  They are expecting (and she’s 5 days late I might add) a baby boy!  Rocco!    Since I’m so behind on blogging, I thought maybe it is only right for me to get her maternity portraits up before Rocco decides…

maternity: kelly & joe

I’m going to precede this blog post by saying that maternity portraits are typically shot two months prior to your due date under normal circumstances :-). I received an email from Kelly, who contacted me during week 37 of her pregnancy stating, “I’m still up for having my picture taken!” I was thrilled, but knew…

  • These are such fab photos!! So warm yet glamorous in an everyday sort of way.

    And their apartment is also pretty amazing. Any chance Kelly would share where she got her headboard? I love it.ReplyCancel

  • Their NEW apartment is even more amazing. Wait until you see it.

    Re: Headboard, I of course asked her when I first showed up (it’s a showpiece!) I believe she said it was a Soho store find – but I may be mistaken. Hopefully she gets in here and fills us in. She had a great knack for putting things together and inspired me to my daughter’s photo wall (blog post to follow when I can get to it).ReplyCancel

  • […] you remember the couple from Kelly & Joseph who were expecting Ruby in their maternity photography session in Central Park – if not, be sure to check it out. If you read the story, you would know – Ruby Beatrice was born […]ReplyCancel

    Laura – these are really beatiful. What a cute couple, in addition to the headboard and the photo wall (which I will also duplicate!) Loving those little flats she has on. Noticed she owns them in 2 colors!
    I know 2 places where you might be able to get a similar headboard made…won’t be cheap though. That is a showpiece!ReplyCancel

michelle’s maternity portraits

One of my oldest and dearest friend Michelle’s maternity session. These shots were taken the day before she gave birth. My sessions are fun! Isn’t she beautiful? Michelle’s husband is a skilled carpenter & craftsman, she wanted a few shots with his handiwork. We’re going to preserve this as well (we have to get all…

  • It as taken me a week to come back and post. The first time I saw the images I was so moved by them, before I ever read the caption emotions welled up inside of me. When I did, the tears flowed for your friend and from the truly inspiring images and the story they will always keep.

    My thoughts and prayers will always be with you.ReplyCancel

    I have told many times – I love your work, this – my friend – is breath taking. As I sit and read the bio you have attached with Michelle portraits my tears creep so gently down my face, I feel a sense of loss as well –

    Michelle you are a women with Spirit and Grace. You will find a place of tranquility as baby John has. May he rest in the palm of GODS hands. Know that you will meet your son again.

    My prayers go out to you, Luke and your husband John.

    With sincere thoughts of you,
    The Acosta Family.ReplyCancel
