Ready, Set, ..PoseReallyQuickBeforeYouGoIntoLaborAndHaveThatBaby! ;)
Since I am behind in my posts, I thought I would take this opportunity to combine two quick maternity sessions I did recently. One of them is a wonderful friend of mine, and the other, is now a wonderful client! Both of them were actually due in about 1 week from the time they contacted me about doing a last minute maternity session, so needless to say, I got them in pretty fast since they could have their baby girls any day! Typically, maternity sessions should be done between 28 to 32 weeks, or even as far as 34 if you are don't feel you are showing much, however the only absolute requirement to scheduling a maternity session, is you still need to be pregnant =) .
The first session took place at 12:30 in the Afternoon (can we say SUNSHINE?!), but I managed to find a nice spot right next to our church that blessed me with a sliver of shade so that we could get some nice images for her. This session was scheduled about 9 hours beforehand as a fleeting thought before my friend went to bed and we picked the location when we walked out of church that afternoon and I looked around..not bad, huh?!
The second session was done in Manhattan so close to sunset that we almost ended up shooting in the dark! The sun had been enveloped in cloud cover about an hour before our appointment time and hadn't broken free by the time our session started. Of course every photographer loves a good set of clouds for some diffused light.. but it is more appreciated during the day and not when it is already getting dark anyway! That is ok though, we got this session done nice and quick and the family looks beautiful. Dad was away for work unfortunately, but at least she could send him a nice photo!
