I’m back to blogging the last couple of sessions for which I’ve been commissioned this summer!
Eight years on the day when they first met each other, Winette and Jimmy married with a witness in attendance at the City Clerk’s Office, better known by most as the City Hall. I have a special attachment to this place because this is where R and I first made our marriage official as well. I was asked by Winette’s sister, Marlana (see her engagement shoot here), to do this combination wedding and maternity shoot for this wonderful couple at City Hall as well as in Central Park. They are expecting their beautiful Sweet Pea very soon. Winette and Jimmy chose to celebrate their wedding in a very intimate way, and I was extremely honored to be alongside them and capture their romance. If there’s one impression that I would love to leave with you, my dear readers, is that they have a really strong bond that you can visibly see when they smile at each other, when they hug each other, and when they hold hands. They have this beautiful commitment to each other’s well being and their future family. It is a family that is filled with the kind of nurturing love that I know will make them amazing parents.
Winette and Jimmy were very creative and stylish, yet comfortable and at ease.
After a break and a short thunderstorm, we went to the beautiful Central Park
That red bowtie is pretty awesome
We all can’t wait for Sweet Pea to make her big appearance! Winette and Jimmy, congratulations, and best of luck in the coming months!
