Earlier this month, one of my previous co-workers, Andrew, contacted me about doing a photo shoot for his sister who is pregnant & her husband. I'm so glad I was able to do the mini maternity shoot with Stephanie & Lyves. They were such a lively couple & excited for the birth of their first child.
We started in the lobby of the Brooklyn Museum, which, by the way, has EXCELLENT natural lighting. Initially, we wanted to do most of the shoot around the area outside of the museum, but the night before it snowed & it was a very cold day. I don't mind shooting in the cold weather, but I always want to make sure my clients are comfortable so we get the shots we want. I had them do a few cute poses outside for the snowy, winter look, but ultimately we ended up back inside the museum after a few minutes.
After taking a few solo shots of the mother-to-be & hugged up couple poses, we were able to get passes to roam the rest of the museum. The lighting was a bit off by some of the exhibits, so we found a staircase with all white walls & perfect natural lighting coming in from the huge windows.
I'm so happy I was able to capture this beautiful couple as they await the arrival of their baby. These 2 are going to make awesome parents! See some of my favorite images from the photo shoot below.
