Adriene’s Maternity session

Working on Adriene‘s maternity session had me reflecting on how important documenting life changing events are. For her session she chose Battery Park as the backdrop and asked if her family could join her. I know this was a maternity session but isn’t it really about family? So her boyfriend and son came along for the session. At first I felt bad for her son as it was really windy by the water and cold, but Adriene mentioned he plays football so he should be used to the cold. LOL

We started with a few poses by the trees then headed over to the steps and finished on the sand along the waterline. I will say this was one of the most moving sessions I’ve had in a long time. To see her and her boyfriend playfully making faces and small talk while I worked them into their pose positions really showed me that both young love and black love is forever strong. It was good to see that as a reminder as all these reality shows would have you thinking that black love is more along the lines of comedy and tomfoolery.

The session was great and a awesome reminder that black love is strong.
