I'll be the first to admit that I'm a miserable morning person. I spend most of my productive hours alone when people are asleep in the dead of the night. So when I approached my good friends Lindsay and Dan about taking their NY maternity photos before sunrise, even I questioned my sanity. In a city of millions, only a small number take advantage of the time between 6-8am, especially on a Saturday. For Lindsay and Dan, this is their trip down Parenthood Lane. Knowing these two as well as I do, I know they'll make amazing parents. I was so happy to capture this special time in their lives and give them a gift their little one will cherish many years from now.
