Baby bump photos in Manhattan

Besides the early pregnancy photo that I posted of me with the bump sign, I've been eager to take maternity photos as a couple, especially since  Raphael and I never did engagement photos. I don't mean the kind of bump shots that reveal naked bellies or include body art, just couple photos that happen to include the twin bump. I also wanted the pics to tell a story of how we met with a glimpse to our future with the babies.

First, I had to find a photographer that could capture that look. Enter Ami Martin Photography, who also happens to be a WTMB reader and a blogger herself. Although located on the west coast, I read that she typically schedules portrait sessions when she travels, so I reached out to her and found out that she was planning on being in New York in the Fall and voila we booked a 2hr session.

For a backdrop, Raphael and I decided to go back to the beginning, where we met almost seven years ago on the NYC subway at 53rd and Lexington to be exact. We posed at the subway entrance, on the platform, in the train and up in Times Square.

Each spot provided a great pic, so much so that I can't select which is my favorite and which ones I should print and frame. What do you think?



  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE! what a great, fun idea. you two are great! add 2 more and it'll be even greater than the sum of the parts! :)

  2. Beautiful pictures! You look amazing!

  3. So great to see these photos of you and R... Miss you both so much! Love the subway theme. :)

  4. I love them all! But my favorite is the last one - with the second from the top and the second from the bottom running pretty close behind.

    Your photographer is amazing....but not too hard to get good pictures of such a beautiful couple. :)

  5. I love the pics! The last one is my fave. I also love the one with the E train coming, but wish that guy in the background wasn't there. It's still a great pic though and doesn't make it look staged, just natural.

  6. 1st, 3rd, 9th, and last. So I'm indecisive...they're all great! I think that your idea was fantastic and you got a wonderful photographer. She was in NY at the perfect time for you!

  7. They all look great, but I like the one holding the baby outfits because its a closer shot.

  8. aw these are so great! love them!
