Oyster Bay, New York
Brittany and Greg’s maternity session was so special, for so many reasons! I first met these two back in October when I photographed Brittany’s brother, Jared’s, wedding. In fact, if you’ve been following along for a while now you may recognize the stunning location that is Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club from Caroline and Jared’s wedding portraits!
Jared and Brittany’s family are members of the club, so we had to make the trip to take their maternity photos there as well! These two are expecting their first baby in May, and I couldn’t be more excited for them. It was absolutely wonderful working with this sweet family again, and capturing even more special memories for them to look back on for years to come.
Wanting to include their sweet pup, Bunker, in some of their photos, our first stop was Brittany’s parents’ house. Bunker is an aspiring Purina model at heart, and after a few treats he was more than ready to pose. I always love when couples include their furbaby in photos, and working with Bunker was no exception!
In typical March fashion, it was pretty chilly — but Brittany was an absolute trooper and braved the cold to embrace her bump! She and Greg were total pros right off the bat (they have also had practice with engagement and wedding photos!), and working with them was such a joy. Here’s what Brittany had to say about working together:
Jill captured our maternity photos and we could not have been happier! We were introduced to Jill when she photographed my brother’s wedding, whose photos came out stunning. Leading up to our photo day Jill worked with us closely on scheduling and our hopes for capturing these special memories. The day of she made us feel comfortable and at ease the whole session, making it easy to feel like ourselves. She even worked with us getting our dog to pose in the photos, luring him with treats and getting him to smile! Overall we could not be happier with our experience and our photos!
Congratulations to Brittany, Greg, and their families — I can’t wait for you to meet your baby boy in just a few weeks!
