Mother to Be

    Newer Older

    I did my first maternity session this weekend and I can't lie, I was a little worried that I had no idea what I was doing.

    At the end of the day I was really happy with the results. Here's one of my favorites from the session, that came out of an idea my wife Carrie suggested. She makes a great creative director!

    Strobist:
    - Lastolite Ezybox in front of subject w/ SB-26 on 1/16
    - Bare SB-26 behind subject on the left. 1/32 power
    - Triggered with skyports

    Shot in my house...converted to a "studio" with blankets and lightstands. The vignetting is all natural here too.
