Baby P Makes Three: Brooklyn Maternity/Lifestyle with Cristin and Justin

 (Michelle Lawlor/Lucky 17 Photography)

Cristin and Justin are an absolutely adorable Brooklyn couple expecting their first baby any day now.

I just *loved* hanging with these two. The love they feel for one another is palpable, and I love how they constantly make each other laugh out loud without really trying. They have fun wherever they go and it’s so awesome to be around this kind of positivity. This is what it’s all about, people.¬†

The couple has been living in NYC after relocating from the Carolinas. They asked me to come document a day in their lives in the city before the baby arrives. They want to be able to show their little son or daughter exactly what their lives were like before he or she arrived. Thinking back, I wish I had this kind of snapshot of my own parents, too.

I couldn’t be more excited to be able to spend the day traipsing around the city, stopping at their favorite coffee shop and observing these two being their adorable selves.

This session was done using natural light only, starting in their sun-drenched apartment and then using that big hot ball in the sky to light the outdoor shots. Here are just a few of my favorites as well as a slideshow set to the most beautiful song. Scroll all the way down to see the slideshow below, or browse the gallery here.

Enjoy!

Cristin and Justin each wrote a letter to the baby. I had them share their letters with each other at our shoot. I had a hard time holding back the tears – so sweet!
