Love stories. For me, a maternity session is all about them. Not just the obvious one of anticipating your new little one into the world, but also the all too important one of looking back and remembering why you both fell in love from the start. I love love, and always want to know what your story is. I love to see how milliseconds after I ask how did it all begin, my couples always look at each other as if to read their living history in each other’s eyes. I love to see how this unabashed smile spreads across their faces, and sometimes a perfect little chuckle comes from one of them. There is nothing more beautiful than the simplistic joy that love gifts us with.

Ken and Shanita, well, they fell in love shortly after high school and it shows. There is a certain level of being together that comes with the passing of time. The way Ken would merely smile when Shanita would recount a hilarious story about his enjoying Hawaii a little too much during his time stationed there, while she on the other hand had the scenery  that our very own concrete jungle had to offer her in exchange. Or the way as a couple, they moved about and around each other so effortlessly and sometimes even without saying a word. They got each other and soon they will get to know just as perfectly a little one of their own. My New York maternity session with them celebrated all the new beginnings that were awaiting them and here we were welcoming another one.

Congratulations you two.

My little ladies. My four year old beauties with their tremendous hearts and penchant for never taking anything too seriously. I have the absolute honor of documenting them every year, of capturing just how much they have grown and learned from the last time my lens was focused on them. Admittedly, I love this special time with them and how my camera easily captures the curvature of their faces and it’s telltale sign that they aren’t quite so little anymore, their fidgety fingers silently letting me know just how aware they are of this black box snapping away in front of them, and their cheeks that bunch up perfectly in sync with the peals of laughter escaping their mouths.

Something extraordinary happened this year though. Something that only time can nurture and develop. Something that instantly captured my eyes because of the personal connection I have with it. They were sisters, through and through. For the first time they connected with each other in a way that I had never seen before in our portrait sessions together. It was them and me, complete with inside giggles and whispered “secrets” between them and all the while I smiled. I smiled because I too have memories of those moments, and in fact still do share those same silly laughs with my sister.

They are some of the best kind of laughs.
