It was a beautiful Saturday morning, and I met one of my past clients out for a maternity photography session in Wave Hill Garden in the Bronx. Wenky and Eddie were married in December 2014, and I was more than thrilled when they asked me to photograph a maternity session for them. Photographing a past couple’s milestones in life is so rewarding. As a photographer, watching a couple’s family grow is an amazing feeling because you feel like you are a part of the adventure in life together.
Many clients ask when is the best time to get maternity photos done. Expecting mothers want to show just a bit of a bump but also want to feel comfortable in their skin. I have found that the 6.5-7 month mark is the ideal time for a maternity session.
The flowers in the garden were in bloom. I had no idea how beautiful the Bronx was in the summertime. Who knew you could find this much greenery in a city like New York, let alone close enough to the island of Manhattan? The weather was perfect with lots of sun but just a bit of a breeze. In short, the session was more fun than anything else. We had a great time together, and I cannot wait to meet the new addition to their family.
Not to get into too much detail about how thankful I am that I am able to do what I love for a living, but it truly is one of the most rewarding things I find in life.
