Alicia Vitarelli’s battle with endometriosis – Maternity Portraits NJ

Alicia Vitarelli’s battle with endometriosis – Je Revele – Maternity Portraits NJ


I was thrilled to watch Alicia Vitarelli’s announcement of her pregnancy on live TV just a few months ago.  As soon as she started talking, I had a feeling that she was about to share EXCITING news of her growing family.  The entire time I’m was staring at her tummy thinking “Is she pregnant? Maybe… could she be 8 weeks? I can’t tell” and sure enough she was 20 weeks pregnant! Ahh!  She was glowing and absolutely radiant.  I can say having three children myself, that I never looked as spectacular as Alicia looked 20 weeks pregnant.  She is beautiful.

During the Summer, when Alicia mentioned coming to the castle for her maternity photos I was SO NERVOUS! She gets her photo taken all the time. But we had the best day and I was so grateful she came with her wonderful husband Matt.  I was so grateful she took Maternity Portraits NJ with us at the castle.

Alicia Vitarelli is now just weeks away from the birth of her baby girl, known fondly as “Baby P.” Today, she shared her story beating endometriosis on Action News. Here’s the clip in case you missed it.


Our maternity session took place in Highland Park, New Jersey at my studio at the Je Revele Castle.  When we pushed back Alicia’s session a few extra weeks patiently waiting for that bump to pop, I thought about photographing her in my Manhattan studio, but this location was so convenient for her and Matt.

Here are a few gorgeous portraits of this soon-to-be mom and dad and Baby P.
