Portrait Session: Jezrael, Pregnant

October 14, 2014  •  4 Comments

It wasn't difficult to brainstorm a location for this shoot–Jezrael, a long time Greenpoint, Brooklyn resident, is such a neighborhood fixture that going anywhere else just didn't make sense. What is difficult (this isn't exclusive to Jez, and for which I can adamantly vouch) is convincing the soon-to-be mother, in all her discomfort at 36 weeks, that she is as beautiful as she is. In spite of the physical self-adjustment that comes with the transformation that is pregnancy, I found Jezrael quite serene in her condition (though she argued otherwise!), and I think it really does translate in the photos.

Aside from the importance of the exterior location, within the intimacy of her own room it hit me that the certain vision I had in mind for my shoots became ever more significant with the highlight of Jezrael's tattoo–It commemorates her father's life. Knowing the significance of her father to her, I couldn't help but bring together all the elements for what I can only consider a photograph of three generations–past, present, and future. And I hope the best of her father, what Jezrael loved most of him, passes on to the sweet little girl that is soon to come.

I can't wait to meet the little darling!!!! Jez, you'll be a wonderful mother.

I always had a crush on Jez, starting when I used to DJ at Black Betty. She really is a gorgeous looking girl. Some women kinda lose their shine when they become pregnant. I think it's enhanced hers. Cheers Jez!!!
