Maternity Session at an East Hampton Beach by Nina Drapacz Photography

We were all set, lots of outfits, a special goldendoodle brother to be and gorgeous parents to be…. Dad was proud of his sympathetic weight gain which seems to be on par with mom’s. They were so relaxed and we all had a blast, especailly the puppy! To make the session easy, we took the SUV onto the beach for easy access to clothing and a place to change. Two hours later after this amazing session, we found that we couldn’t get out! Stuck in the sand for quite awhile until help arrived!

When incorporating a toddler into a maternity photo shoot, its all about the toddler....Battery Park City was a perfection backdrop but the weekend crowd proved challenging.

We escaped to the Irish Hunger Memorial for some shade and short lived moments of respite from the sun. Between swarms of tourists I was able to capture these special moments....

Of course future siblings play an important role and assume the shoot is for them, but with a little coaxing....everyone gets camera time!
