Planning your maternity photoshoot? Tops places in NY for best maternity photos

The spring is finally colouring and warming the city, making it a perfect season for a romantic outdoor photoshoot. Central Park is definitely one of the most famous destination for a maternity photoshoot, but Dumbo is getting popular, not only for engagements photos.

Dumbo (or DUMBO, short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) is a neighbourhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. A couple of years back, this area was known for the Brooklyn Bridge view only and a huge area with 100-year-old warehouses that now have turned into luxury condos, hip restaurants, cutting-edge performance art spaces and tech start-ups. Today, It is one of New York City’s hippest, historic neighbourhoods with unsurpassed views and the city’s best pizza! Best of all, you can take some of the best photos of New York City skyline.

There’s quite a few different scenarios for your photos, from Jane’s Carousel lights to both iconic bridges, Manhattan and Brooklyn, cozy cafes and restaurants, park and Pebble Beach— a charming place to chill and just watch the sunset over the river.

If you are planing your maternity photoshoot, you might consider Dumbo as part of an iconic memory of New York City!

Maternity Photoshoot in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn

Usually the big island, Manhattan, gets the whole attention when talking about photoshoots. But as a Brooklyn person, I must say there’re so many stunning and charming streets around Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill—a perfect scenario for a chill and spontaneous photoshoot.

Walking along Congress Street, we found this small park, Cobble Hill, with gorgeous and romantic townhouses in the background—just in time for spring! I love combining indoor and outdoor photoshoots, so we can get a broad range of photos, from a more intimate scenario to a walk around the neighbourhood with all the spring vibe!

Next time, when scouting for places for your maternity photoshoot, go check around Bergen St, Pacific St and Cobble Hill Park! You won’t regret!

Maternity Photoshoot in Dumbo, Brooklyn

At this point you probably have realised that I love photographing in Brooklyn, specially around Dumbo area. On a sunny day, the gold colour around sunset time gives the photos such a romantic and soft feel.

The weather in NY changes so quickly that I rather wait till last minute before canceling a photoshoot. The day I met with Camila and Julien, had been raining for entire morning and when I was almost losing hope, we had such a beautiful afternoon with a golden sun at the background! <3 Perfect scenario for a maternity photoshoot by the Brooklyn Bridge and Jane’s Carousel!
