I first met Heidi and Jess three years ago, when I took their engagement photos in Central Park. They got married in Belgium the next year, and now they're expecting a baby! I am so happy for them, and so looking forward to meeting their little boy or girl in April!
Maribel and Josef are a sweet couple from Texas expecting their first child - a daughter named Sofia. We took Maribel's maternity photos in Washington Square on a beautiful cloudy day. We narrowly missed the "heavy rain" forecasted for the day, but we got enough drizzle to pull out the umbrella for some beautiful rainy pictures. There were some wonderful touches to our session, like the red dress Maribel's mom made for the photos and the baby booties her dad sent from Texas. I can't wait to meet little Sofia!
Yesterday I photographed Eve, who is expecting her first child and absolutely glowing. If the baby's a girl, Eve and Josh are going to name her Marley-Simone, for two of their favorite musicians. Eve's due date is Christmas Day, which means this lucky girl is always going to be on vacation for her birthday! I can't wait to see Eve, Josh, and little Marley-Simone for newborn photos in January!
My wonderful next-door neighbors in Jerusalem, Ruti and Tal, are having a baby this summer. They have been so sweet all year, inviting my husband and me over for dinner, showing us around Israel, and even having us over to Tal's parents' house for Rosh Hashana. So when Ruti told me she was pregnant, I decided to give her a maternity session as a gift. Ruti is one of the sexiest, most beautiful pregnant women I've ever met. She's so centered and comfortable with her body, and she's totally glowing. She and her husband Tal are so in love and so happy about their baby; they were such a joy to photograph. I won't be around for the birth of their little boy, but I can't wait to meet him either next time I'm in Israel or when Ruti and Tal come visit me in New York!
