erin + justin | maternity |central park | new york city

i’ve been meaning to feature this maternity session as well as others in new york city. nyc has a special place in my heart and am really excited that i will be moving and doing the bi-coastal (california & new york city) journey for the rest of the year. the move has been in talks for awhile and can’t really believe it’s actually happening! for clients, it means there are no travel fees for california or nyc. i’ll write another post about the move & journey soon. now, onto the featured session…

erin & justin were pregnant with their first bundle of joy and decided to keep the sex of the baby a secret. we went to central park on a nice but chilly fall day (before the polar vortex arrived) back in november. i love fall/autumn in nyc! the changing leaves make everything so much prettier. here are some of my favorites from erin & justin’s maternity session in nyc.
