Maternity pictures…at last!

Maternity pictures…at last!

Yesterday was full of shoots for work but, the ever elusive maternity shoot was finally able to work its way in the schedule. Talk about last minute…our baby boy is due June 22nd!

 It was a struggle to find the location I had in mind. I wanted a wide open space with a high elevation so that the foreground seamlessly blended with the sky and the sun would keep illuminating as it continued to dip.  Incredibly, during the last shoot of the day, I was almost finished with the exteriors of the building and that’s when I turned around and saw this…

I called Erika because we were actually planning on doing the shoot that evening…we just didn’t know where. The scene was perfect and the timing even more so. I rushed home to pick up Erika and within one hour we were back onsite…which is a small miracle in its own right. I’m definitely not a portrait photographer so I was hoping to get at least a couple solid images. Much respect to those that do this everyday. Here’s the moment right before we started.

Setting up for the maternity shoot

Pulling this off by myself was a little hectic…primarily because my CamRanger app kept crashing on me. The things I had working for me was my amazing looking wife, the environment, the knowledge of balancing ambient with strobe, and of course, the Profoto B1! At the end of the shoot, we ended up with some great looking images that captured the end of this amazing journey they call pregnancy.
