Portraits of Moms-to-be.
Oh my goodness! When I was contacted by this mama-to-be for pregnancy portraits, I was so excited! I just absolutely love photographing pregnant bellies, and when she shared the types of images she was hoping for, I was ecstatic because they were the types of images I was hoping to capture. We had planned for her to come to my home studio, but unfortunately, her doctors felt she should stay closer to bed – in bed in fact. It is one of the concerns of being pregnant with twins – the fear of premature birth. I offered to come to her home. After capturing newborns in tiny hospital rooms for the past three years, I’ve grown fairly adept at shooting in small spaces. She sent me a photo with her phone of her room, and even with a cell phone pic, I could see that the light coming in was beautiful, and the white walls would be like a huge reflector. She, her husband and two furbabies were absolutely amazing and so much fun to work with. She was able to stand for a few portraits, and I’m so happy she did. I just love, love, love all of the images we created together, but here is a small number of our favorites. (side note: So far, those babies are still cooking! )
