When Courtney first approached me about taking her maternity portraits, I was honored. She is one of my oldest and dearest friends and I couldn't wait to get her and her hubby Dave in front of my camera. She and Dave call Brooklyn home (along with their adorable pup Pina) and the more we talked about the session the more it felt right to have it right in their neighborhood! So earlier this month Dave and I made the trip down to Brooklyn to spend the weekend with this amazing couple (sans Jonathan!!) to celebrate the coming arrival of their baby girl! Watching your friends become parents is one of the most enjoyable experiences and I am just delighted that Courtney and Dave get to experience the wild ride that is parenthood! I know that they are going to be amazing parents and fall head over heels for their baby girl!! I seriously could go on and on about how much I love these two but I'll let the pictures do the talking!!
We started the session in Dave and Courtney's neighborhood in the heart of Brooklyn. Having had the opportunity to explore over the weekend, Dave and I fell in love with this borough. Quaint yet urban, charming yet incredibly unique, busy but family oriented, it's like Somerville on steroids!! We loved it!!How cute is Ms. Pina?!Love!Definitely a favorite from the day!After spending the first part of the afternoon in their neighborhood, we headed to DUMBO to explore!DUMBO offers amazing views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge. It was incredibly crowded that day, but we managed to find a few areas all to ourselves!Courtney, you are GLOWING! I can't wait to meet the little one!!After spending some time exploring DUMBO we headed over to Manhattan to check out the High Line.WORK IT!Look at that gorgeous bump!Another fave!!I love this portrait of the Mama to Be!Courtney and Dave, you were amazing!! Way to rock your session! I can't wait to meet Baby Girl so so soon!!
