This was another early morning shoot with the beautiful momma-to-be Renata. Renata is a photographer herself, so I was a bit nervous about doing her photos. I was determined that they had to be perfect.
That said, the morning lighting was absolutely great, the location beautiful, and Renata was about as gorgeous as pregnant ladies get. I didn't have anything to worry about.
My only challenge here was teaching myself about maternity photography. I'm used to positioning my models to make them look skinny, but in maternity that is out the window. Everything is about showing off that belly! The poses are different than what I'm used to, the model doesn't get around as well, and babies and bellies move! But working with Renata was great because we were able to pool our experience a bit and come out with some great photos.
Renata is now the mother of a beautiful baby girl. It doesn't get any better than that!
