Every now and then a client comes along that gets you EXCITED to do what the eff it is that you do. NéKenya was that client for me. Let’s talk about what she wanted for her maternity shoot for a second. Editorial Urban Graffiti. SAY. NO. MORE. For any of you that have been following me for a while, you know that murals, street art, and graffiti is legit my jammiest jam. So y’all know I was prepared to drop every single thing to do a shoot with such an awesome client using street art as our back drop.

NéKenya and I started our magical shoot at the famous Heart Wall at Union Market and OH MY was it everything. From there, we basically took a tour of the most epic DC murals and NéKenya KILLED her shoot, basically proving that she’s meant to be an amazing mommy model. I can’t tell you guys enough how obsessed and inspired these walls left me, and I’m so happy NéKenya had such an incredible and authentic idea for her maternity shoot. I’m ALSO eternally grateful she carted me around all morning! Let’s all wish this beautiful mommy-to-be and her partner, Jay, the very best on their upcoming parenthood adventure!

PS: The freaking shoes.
