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.

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.

Baby boom by denisedebelius

There seems to be a baby boom happening in 2014. In fact, so many of my friends are pregnant, we had to get together and celebrate the coming arrivals with a gender-themed group shoot!

Holiday family portraits with my in-laws, nephew and an impending niece come February! Personal cameo thanks to my wireless shutter release.

The Bennett family by denisedebelius

Recently, I photographed some family/maternity portraits for my friends, the Bennetts. You wouldn’t have guessed that Alisha had been up all night assisting another friend, who began laboring-and delivered at home-nine days early. Mrs. Bennet still glowed radiantly alongside her beautiful family in a fall-themed photo shoot, complete with pumpkins and baby bumps. Congrats to the Bennets, whose newest member is due to arrive mid-November!
