There are few things that make me happier than when I get to photograph my couples on more life milestones. I was so excited when Jess and Eric reached out to me about photographing their Spring Lake NJ maternity session!! I love these two and couldn’t be excited for them to expand their family, and so honored to capture this chapter! I had a blast photographing these two, as always! I’m so excited to share these photos! But first…just a little bit of their love story!
When I asked Jess & Eric to share with me one thing they love about each other, Jess said, “I love to see his joy! He’s got a beautiful spirit, a love of spontaneity, and is driven to making the most out of life.” Eric said he loves that Jess, “made me a cat and human dad.”
Jess & Eric met while working for the New York Rangers in 2011. Jess told me, “We remained close friends and teammates for years but didn’t start officially dating until 2014. We truly are one of those rare “friends first” relationships. From there our relationship grew and we were engaged out in Napa in 2017 and married the following May at Bear Brook Valley in NJ.” I had the honor of photographing their beautiful Bear Brook Valley wedding back in 2018. I adore these two and photographing them is my fave!
I asked each of them to share one thing they’re excited for in this new journey of becoming parents. They told me, “We are excited for the little lady to join us on all our future adventures! Eric is excited to show her Bethany Beach, Delaware and share all the things he loved to do as a kid. Jessica is ready to take her on her first international trip to Aruba and see her in the bright blue ocean sporting a tiny tropical bathing suit (…which I’ve already purchased 😉 ).”
Jess & Eric, you two are going to be the most amazing parents! Your little girl is so lucky to have a mom & dad like you! She’s already so loved! I’m beyond excited for you both and so excited to get to photograph another big milestone in your love story! I love you guys! Can’t wait to meet your little peanut soon!!! 🙂 xoxoxo
