The stars aligned when Shaina asked me to shoot her maternity session. We were originally going to be shooting in her hometown of Orange County, but when she found out I'd be in New York the weekend before, we managed to squeeze in a time for photos. It was marathon Sunday, and the park was jammed with people and barricades. It took a bit of teamwork to find a meeting spot since we were coming from opposite ends of the park. We made ourselves at home in the Ramble. It was just before sunset, and the light was peaking through the trees. Such a perfect afternoon.
It's quite intimidating photographing another photographer, especially someone I highly respect as a film photographer! Rachel and her family modeled for FIND LA a few weeks ago. Her adorable daughter, Nova, stole all of our hearts. Rachel is expecting a baby boy in a couple of weeks, so it was really nice getting to capture some moments of their family while they are still three.
Stephanie is expecting a baby girl next month, so I thought I should blog part of her session. We started indoors and made our way to the beach. It was an unseasonably warm day, so we were able to take some lovely relaxed shots.
