You’re in for a real treat on our baby blog today, because this maternity session couldn’t be more perfect! The bohemian Central Park maternity photos are magical. From the mama to-be’s beautiful lace maxi dresses (we totally support a mid-shoot outfit change) to the romantic boat ride her and her baby daddy take, to the pretty lounge set-up just for them, we are met with one dreamy moment after the next. And come on, they’re in Central Park! The location alone is enough to have us swooning! Read on for the parents’ inspiration and their photographer’s, Dash Photography, sweet words about the shoot.
The mama to-be says, I reached out to Dash Photography shortly after finding out that my husband and I were expecting our little one. I had come across Amanda’s work several years ago on IBT when I had bookmarked a Cotton Candy Carnival maternity session that she had done. I followed her work throughout the years on social media and knew that if anyone could capture this enchanted Central Park moment that I had dreamt of creating for our own maternity shoot, it would be Amanda.
Sure enough, the photos are dreamy! Both my husband and myself are born New Yorkers… and our baby will be too… but believe it or not, neither of us had ever gone on a boat ride in Central Park. We had the most fun experience, followed by a magical photo session as the sun was setting. We can’t thank Amanda enough for shooting these extraordinary images.
Amanda says, Whitney contacted me several months ago after she and Ross found out they were expecting a little bundle of love. She explained her whimsical Central Park photo shoot vision, complete with inspiration boards, and I could tell right away this wasn’t an ordinary request. Her enthusiasm and creativity, along with the idea that this would take place in New York City, made it an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. Whitney and Ross are two of the kindest humans and are madly in love. Baby S has no idea how they’ve hit the parent jackpot. So this is Mom and Dad to be (with baby in tow) in the dreamiest moment in the middle of Central Park. Boy (or girl!), I would say yes to her a million times more.
