Photo Journal: Kat’s Picnic for Two

3E4A3597   One of the beautiful things in the world to me, is the radiance of a woman who’s transitioning into a new stage of motherhood.
One of my dearest friend’s Kat is expecting, and her and her spouse couldn’t be happier. Due to these past couple of months being a rough in the world, we’ve stayed away from each other as recommended, but I love having girl dates.
I think making time for your girlfriends is essential. They’re the ones that listen to all your troubles, make you laugh and are with you every step of your journey, so why wouldn’t I go out of my way to do a little something simple, like plan a picnic.
We made our way to the most obsolete part of the park, 6 feet had nothing us today. Our speaker was blasting reggeaton, while we caught up on everything that’s going on in our lives at the same time. Where do you even begin?
For me that was a little easy, as my trusty camera was ready. But let’s be clear this photo session was not planned, not even a little a bit… but I was eager to document some part of her journey— even if I was a little late, and even if she’s almost due.

As the unofficial photographer of the family, I’m always ready to get behind the camera to capture the moments that matter. If I can do this for everyone else, why should my own family have to deal with crappy cell phone pictures ( I secretly hate those).
My brother Luis and girlfriend Jen are expecting, and only being 5 months in, I wanted to be able to remember the middle stages of the pregnancy. That way when she’s really showing, we can have round two and compare.
During our Father’s Day barbecue (you can read that post HERE) I told the couple to take a quick walk with me. They really weren’t expecting this happen today, so It’s not like there was any time to prepare. This session lasted about 12 minutes and because we didn’t want to be away for too long and leave the food on the grill waiting for us, we hurried back. For such a quick walk, I think we did pretty damn well!
Looking forward to session number 2, with a bigger belly,

Maternity Shoot: Sophia’s Mommy

11.2.w83cdf0bd9774a3ef9123c4df9b341aabStraight from work, I felt no need to stay at home lounging around doing nothing. I called up one of my closest friends around my way (well, my only friend around my way.. I have yet to make friends in Brooklyn.. booo hooo.) Any who… since her babyshower is around the corner, I thought it was perfect to have a last minute photoshoot of our own. Note, that I do not  own photoshop (which I’m dying to learn) so I pretty much make due with what I have. We set up using a lamp to add some brightness to her face and I just started to snap away. I hope you guys like, I know she loved them!9w10.2w7 8Ps. Check out these behind the scenes pics of when we were fooling around with makeup with her gorgeous niece!1-6_1 2-5_1 4_1 5_1 6_1
