A’s Maternity Shoot

This shoot got rescheduled at least 3 times due to our perfect record of choosing stormy days!  When it finally worked out the weather was perfect.  Oh, it was so nice.  Not hot, not cold, not too sunny, not too cloudy.  Perfect.  It also allowed this mama-to-be to grow a little more!  She's nearly 34 weeks here, can you believe it?  She's so tall that baby has tons of room to stretch out and when she's sitting or laying she hardly looks pregnant (there are a LOT of jealous women out there A!).

We started off the shoot at her apartment complex.  They were so nice and let us use one of the model apartments.  It was ridiculously cute and had great light!

We finished off the shoot at Uptown Park.  I've wanted to shoot here ever since I moved here!  It was really fun and I discovered things I hadn't noticed before.

This next shot is a good example of some of the wonders of post-processing that I thought people would like to see.  I took this picture (below) knowing that I wanted to bring in the background more, but in order to expose for A's face, the background has to be over-exposed.  So I exported this image from Lightroom as is,

and then decreased the exposure significantly and exported this one as well.

I put them together and after a little masking and editing, voila.

We happened to be walking by crave cupcake and I suggested that we get a pink cupcake for A's little cupcake that she's growing.  She said her husband would really like these shots and I know I do!

C came along again and helped me shoot and grabbed this lovely shot while I was focused on the cupcake.

I can't wait for baby to get here!  Expect a beautiful new baby girl to grace this blog in June.

  1. Just so you know, at 5 foot nothing and almost 35 weeks pregnant I am one of those jealous pregnant women!!! I try my best to stay behind the camera instead of infront these days! But she looks absolutly gorgeous and these pictures are FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to see her beautiful baby!

  2. Lovely! (apparently that comment is too short, getting a little greedy are we?) 🙂

  3. I loved the post processing example, too. My fav is the one in the chair….the second pic. Loved it!

  4. Wow! I loved seeing what you did with your post-processing. The shots in front of the green wall/ivy are my favs though.
