I shot my first maternity session using my rented 12-24mm lens in Portland. I did a few with the 85mm, too, which is my favorite lens for shooting people usually. The first few images I took weren’t coming out as relaxed and natural as I wanted them to, so we decided to switch tactics. Instead we did some fun and goofy shots to loosen us both up and get ideas flowing. We shot on her front porch, in her bathroom, and in her sunroom.
These aren’t really the typical maternity shots, I know, and in fact in a few you can’t even really tell she is pregnant, but I love how they came out. In the first one she looks like SuperMom, doesn’t she???
