Just weeks away from her due date, Vanesa and Jorge arrived at Central Park to take maternity photos!
We met at dusk to celebrate their baby-to-be and their genuine love for one another. With bags of outfits and props in tow, they arrived ready to go! They had moved to NYC about six months prior, so it was a blast exploring the park together.
Their little boy, Benjamin, will be the first baby of the extended family, to the delight of loved ones in Australia and Argentina. I have a feeling Vanesa and Jorge will be hosting guests very soon and very often.
Benjamin is quite a lucky boy to have such wonderful parents!
During our time together, I could immediately tell how kind and light-hearted that Vanesa and Jorge are. They would consistently and subtly check in with one another, making sure each person was comfortable and feeling good. As they giggled between shots, Vanesa and Jorge gazed at one another with complete love.
Motherhood comes in many shapes and forms. Some women become mothers through pregnancy, which is such an amazing accomplishment of the female body. Other women gracefully decide to adopt, providing a loving home. Family members and friends can also take the role of mothers, as they give advice, share laughter, and soothe tears.
Motherhood is deep and unconditional commitment to loving and raising a child, and that experience is unlike any other.
Vanesa radiates joy and strength.
She will undoubtedly a wonderful mother and I can't wait to hear about all of her and Jorge's adventures raising Benjamin!
