This post is one that is very near and dear to my heart. While doing this photoshoot, I was so filled with joy, admiration, and appreciation for women, life, and the immense love that consumes a person from inside out. One of my closest friends, Lauren Gabrielle, is having a baby and this past fall, I had the honor to capture her in the most beautiful stage of life. Not only will she and her husband Adrian make the most amazing parents, but I know this baby will be blessed beyond words. While I was in NY, I shot a wedding with Lauren and she completely redefined the word “hero” for me. I caught myself whining a few times on the way home and wanted to kick myself hard as she was, oh, you know, carrying an extra person around while I was carrying a vendor meal. No big deal. In all seriousness, Lauren, you are so beautiful—inside and out—and I’m so blessed to have had you in my life for the past few years. I can’t wait to see how you excel as a parent and I just know you will be the most incredible, loving, nurturing mother there is. This baby has already brought so much love and joy to your lives and I am so excited for all that lies ahead. Adi and I can’t wait to meet the little blessing!
Enjoy your SLIDESHOW! Cutest bump there is…Isn’t she just radiating beauty? I bet you’re dying to know what the baby is…. Well… It’s a GIRL! yay!!! Lauren’s husband, Adrian, joined us for a few photos as we shot around Tribeca, which provided heavenly light and backgrounds for us. And then there were 3!!!!
Why, yes, we are models and with looks like ours, I’m sure our baby will be too. Really, guys. This photo kills me. A quick outfit change (hello Ralph Lauren models) for some night shots, which I can totally do in NYC thanks to the never ending surge of electricity. Don’t know why, but I just love this candid below:
Happy Weekend to you all!! xoxo
