A Maternity Session in Fort Greene, Brooklyn

Looking back at this maternity session in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, I realize how lucky we were to actually make it happen. Just a few hours after the shoot, I received a message from this beautiful curly-haired mama; their daughter had made her entry to the world! Thank you baby Ayla for waiting and arriving just in time!

Shooting Another Brooklyn Maternity Photographer

Loryne and John were one loving couple if I’ve ever seen one; it was an easy breezy experience to capture this key moment of their lives. Loryne being a photographer herself, she knew how to pose and I barely needed to give them prompts to take cute photos. It’s always great to capture other photographers’ life events and collaborate on ideas! She saw things that I didn’t, while fully trusting me on where to go and what to do.

Picking Fort Greene, Brooklyn for our Maternity Session

We walked around Fort Greene and its cute brownstones and stopped the traffic to take photos on the road (my specialty!). We then took a stroll in Fort Greene Park, which had lots of greenery at this time of year. Living in New York City, I always try to find nice parks for maternity sessions. I like to take sit down pictures and add variety to the photos I’m gonna deliver. For example I love to shoot mamas’ bellies from the top, so they can remember what it felt like when they looked at it themselves 🙂
