When I arrived at the home of this wonderful couple (who prefer to remain anonymous), I was warmly greeted with pastries, the best homemade cappuccino ever, and a gorgeous expecting lady who was already in early labor. This is the first time I have ever posted a maternity session with the newborn session already on my camera; she had a baby girl 4 days after this shoot (photos coming soon)! I was immediately in love with them and I could just feel how much they are in love with each other. Although I had to travel a ways to meet them, it was an experience I’m glad I didn’t pass up. The father-to-be is from Argentina, where they have been making alpargata shoes (where Toms originated from) since 1885. The Alpargata is a traditional shoe made by the gauchos for use in the great pampas. The casual style fits perfectly into modern sensibilities; simple, elegant, and functional enough to walk from Buenos Aires to Patagonia and back without getting a blister. Now I didn’t make this Ma-Bod walk that far by any means, but I’m thinking I need to get myself a pair of these for photo shoots! Haha. The baby alpargatas are ridiculously adorable! Enjoy.
