Wait…Maternity Portraits?

So yeah, you might ask if I shoot maternity portraits. Well the answer is no…at least not typically. I have never photographed maternity portraits before and honestly it is not my thing. However, recently I made an exception for some of my friends. I treated it more like a simple engagement shoot than anything. We had limited time with a narrow window of light and I didn’t really want to do the typical and sometimes, if not always, very awkward poses of the “bare belly cradled by the husband’s hands”. But the shoot turned out pretty fun because my friends are cool, my assistant was great, and we got some good shots. There was a beautiful glow from the golden hour that night so I was pumped about that and used it to my advantage. It’s amazing what a simple reflector can do and what one flash for some night photography is capable of.
