I am still photographing babies, but this one isn't here yet. A few weeks ago I had the chance to photograph my first maternity session. Denise made it so easy and fun, and it doesn't hurt that she is really photogenic. Paul and I had scouted out some "bump" signs and found this really grungy one with a great wooded background. I am still trying to figure out how to shoot in sunlight and ended up using some fill flash in these --- my Stroboframe with a speedlight in a Gary Fong diffuser. Then we headed to my house where I set up a white background and shot some more. I think we ended up using 2 of my speedlights --- one from behind the white background to blow it out and get rid of the wrinkles, one with a softbox from camera right...and maybe even a third aimed at the background from camera left. We moved lights around several times so I can't remember what we ended up going with. The pattern was added in post-processing.
