I have known this beautiful woman since elementary school. Over two decades! Since I moved to Atlanta in 1999, it’s been hard to keep in contact with everyone up there on Long Island. I miss it so much, and find myself there more often that not now, just taking in the beauty of it. She is 37 weeks pregnant here, and we decided to opt for some maternity photos at sunrise on the beach. This session was shot entirely in film, and this mama rocked it. We did some traditional maternity photos, a little bit more like boudoir, and then some tasteful nudes. There’s absolutely nothing more beautiful than a woman’s body carrying a child.
“Before I knew your name,
Before I saw your chin and your nose,
Before I counted your fingers and toes,
I asked heaven for someone as wonderful as you,
And ever prayer and wish came true.
I dreamed of you…
Before I knew your name.”
