A Beachy Maternity Session- Ariele and Rui

Ariele and Rui are expecting their first baby! What an exciting and life-altering experience. After talking with Ariele and Rui, I know that this baby boy is going to grow up happy and loved every step of the way. They could not be more thrilled to welcome their first child into the world. 


Ariele had a beautiful vision for her maternity session. She really wanted to photograph her session at the beach. What better place than where mother nature is constantly changing and growing. The beach is such a relaxing environment and bonus, creates clean and minimalistic images, allowing focus on the main subject- Areile, Rui and their new baby boy! 


We had one small concern about our location. Ariele had a chance of delivering a bit earlier than her expected due date and since it is early April in New York and it rains almost every day, we were a bit worried fighting off the almost guaranteed possibility of bad weather. Luckily, after days of rain, we had a small window of sunlight! Although we didn’t get a sunset, Ariele was glowing! I mean just look at this cute baby bump! 


Congratulations on your first baby. I wish you two a safe and healthy delivery!
