Javier & Anela: Maternity {Central Park Manhattan Maternity Photography}

Happy Friday, friends!  I thought it would be awesome to post this today because another maternity session of mine was featured on The Fount Collective blog this morning!  With maternity sessions and newness on our minds as we start this year, I had to share this beautiful couple with you :)

I met Javier and Anela through Katie (you may remember her destination wedding in St. Augustine from this fall!)  I immediately loved how excited they were to capture this exciting time in their lives, with a maternity and newborn session before their baby girl is born!  I can’t believe it, she will already be born next month!

We chose to photograph Javier and Anela’s maternity session in Central Park in Manhattan, right before the holidays!  It was pretty cold, but they were such troopers :)  Even without leaves on the trees we found some beautiful spots.  I just loved how much joy these two had and the intimate moments we captured!

Central Park is an important spot for them because just last year, they were married in an intimate wedding ceremony underneath a wooden structure overlooking Bow Bridge in Central Park.  So of course we went back to that spot, which is so meaningful now that they’re expecting!

I’m so excited for these two and it was so wonderful to be a part of this time in their lives!
