Roses love Sunshine, Violets Love Dew- Hunterdon County, NJ Maternity Photographer

Gosh, Where do I even begin with this one?  This abundantly beautiful mother to be was a co-worker of mine in my 9-5 life.   For several years, we anxiously awaited her announcement that she was expecting.  She was but a newlywed when she came to us, so our “gentle nudging” was all in jest but we were certainly looking forward to it.   She’s such a stunning beauty to begin with, I just knew that radiant glow of pregnancy would set her off like none other.

When the day finally came, we were all elated.  And, of course, I couldn’t resist demanding  requesting to do her maternity and newborn photos.   I went on maternity leave before her belly really showed up, so I missed all the fun times in the office watching her grow into this new phase of life.   But, when she arrived for her maternity session, she took my breath away.   She was every bit as lovely as I had imagined she would be.

She chose a purple off the shoulder ruffle gown from my client wardrobe, and also brought along a ruby red stunner as well.   Of course, we could expect this saucy Peruvian goddess to bring her own spicy flair!    We had so much fun with her session and I was thrilled that her husband came along for the ride and got in on some photos too!  I love when the dad’s to be join in.  This is a time to celebrate both of them as they prepare for their new roles as “Mom and Dad”.

Third Time’s the Charm- Randolph, NJ Maternity Photographer

I have been photographing this family for a very long time.   K is one of my dearest friends and it is always such a good time when I get her and her sweet family in front of my camera.

Many many months ago, I received some exciting news from her.  She was expecting baby #3!   Of course, we were super thrilled and immediately began to plan her various photo shoots.    Back when the trees were still bare and the wind was still brisk, we did a quick shoot to announce that they were expecting their third baby boy.

Then, once the she AND the rest of the world were in bloom, we got together to make this magic.  I just can’t get enough of her beautiful glow.  She is truly meant to grow these amazing little humans and always looks stunning when she does.

Lady in Red- Phillipsburg, NJ Maternity Photographer

One of the things that I’m most excited about in this new year of ABP is that I am now offering a client wardrobe to my maternity clients.   No longer do you have to worry about what to wear for your shoot, as I have you covered!    Currently, we have 2 dresses, a wrap, and a black floor length tutu and are always looking to add more to the wardrobe!  Don’t be afraid to ask for something special!  If we don’t have it, we can order it! 🙂

I received this dress and fell IN LOVE.  It’s a little bit of sweet lace, spiced up a LOT with a deep red.   When this lovely young lady answered a recent model call, I knew this was the dress for her session.   And, was it ever.  She looked absolutely stunning!  Lady in Red- Phillipsburg, NJ Maternity Photographer Lady in Red- Phillipsburg, NJ Maternity Photographer Lady in Red- Phillipsburg, NJ Maternity Photographer Lady in Red- Phillipsburg, NJ Maternity Photographer Lady in Red- Phillipsburg, NJ Maternity Photographer Lady in Red- Phillipsburg, NJ Maternity Photographer Lady in Red- Phillipsburg, NJ Maternity Photographer

Belly Laughs- Roxbury, NJ Maternity Photographer

Well, we’re a little bit behind in posting so it may be a little surprising to see an autumn/winter landscape posted here in June.  Michelle gave birth to her beautiful baby girl in January (more on that later) but at the time that these photos were taken, we didn’t know what she was carrying.

This was such a lovely  session.  Michelle is a stunning beauty anyway, but the glow of pregnancy just suits her.

Sugar and Spice: an Intimate Maternity Session- Wyckoff, NJ Maternity Photographer

Recently, I photographed one of my closest friends in her journey from pregnancy to life with another newborn.    Just a few short months after the birth of her second child, her sister was preparing to welcome her own bundle of joy.

Kristina and her husband, Steve, contacted me to do a traditional maternity session.   We picked the brightest and windiest day of the year and set about our day taking pictures at a local park as well as the beautiful and serene nursery they have created for their sweet girl.  Kristina and Steve are a super fun couple that really embrace life together and certainly don’t take themselves seriously.   And, at 9 months pregnant, Kristina was showing both Steve and myself up with her limitless energy and nary a pregnancy waddle to be seen.

After a couple hours of your traditional run-of-the-mill maternity shots, Steve went to work…and Kristina got ready to show off her inner bombshell.   There is nothing more beautiful than a woman with confidence, except maybe a woman with confidence bursting with new life as she prepares to give birth.
