New York Maternity: Adrienne in Tribeca by Denise DeBelius

The Todd family is expecting their first baby this October and I took some portraits of mom-to-be Adrienne in Tribeca. We made some casual shots on the beautiful Staple Street and then she donned a gorgeous lace gown from Movalight Maternity for pictures in the surrounding neighborhood.

Corb Lund by Denise DeBelius

Corb Lund is a country singer out of Canada. While he was in New York performing, we arranged a portrait shoot to update his promotional catalog. A "Midnight Cowboy" aesthetic inspired these portraits, taken in Freeman Alley, SoHo, on the Brooklyn Bridge, and underground in the Subway.

Nibert Number Two by Denise DeBelius

I was home visiting my best friend over Memorial Day and captured her second summer pregnancy. Our firstborns arrived within one day of each other in September 2014, which has been such a special way to experience motherhood together. Nibert girl number two is expected within a week of her big sister's birthday, in early October.

The Bierbaums by denisedebelius

I shot the Bierbaum’s family portrait in Battery Park City, a lower Manhattan neighborhood that I’m quickly becoming familiar with. I love this area’s mix of gorgeous parks and glinting urban streets. And it didn’t hurt that this family brought serious style! Those yellows!

The Barker family by denisedebelius

I shot these family portraits in Prospect Park on the second Saturday of November. The fading sun set the fall foliage aglow and made for a spectacular backdrop!


The Lin family by denisedebelius

I visited the Upper East Side on a breezy November morning to meet and make the portraits of the Lin family. These kids were seriously the best and their sibling love is evident in every image.

The O'Briens by denisedebelius

I’ve only been living in Brooklyn for a year now and am still discovering all the places that families live, play, and thrive in this city of cities. I shot family portraits of the O’Briens in Battery Park City, where they reside. This neighborhood includes tall apartment complexes, a stunning shot of the World Trade Center, a park cove along the Hudson River, and the intense wind that soars off the water down their streets. It’s beautiful!

The Goforth family by denisedebelius

The Goforth family portraits, shot on a sun-drenched October day in Central Park. Jordan and Courtney are moving their family back home to California after five years in New York City. This shoot was a memento of their life here…and a sendoff celebration as their little boy turns one!
