If there was one thing I regret in life that would be the fact that I did not document my pregnancy the first time around. In my mind, I wanted to do a maternity shoot but LS was born so early that I missed my window. Fast forward 5 years later and now I have my opportunity to document this amazing time in my life that I might not experience again. I’m a huge fan of looking and feeling my best as a mother and during pregnancy. I wanted to highlight the natural glow and get that one epic shot I always wished I took years ago.
I searched for the perfect gown and location that could turn my dream into reality. I was fortunate enough to pull a Valentino gown from the showroom that fit my bump like a glove. Everything about this caped gown made me feel beautiful. I always wanted to photograph the Brooklyn Bridge and I knew it would have to be an early morning shoot in order to get the shot I was looking for.
The day started at 5:00 am to prep and the team was on the bridge by 6:45am. It was absolutely freezing and the wind blew every wave right out off my hair. I was a little bummed about the waves but once I saw the shots, I immediately got over it. I’m so happy that I have my perfect memory of being pregnant with my baby boy and I’m so excited to share these images with you. I hope you love these photos as much as I do.
