Danielle and Mike are past wedding clients and I was thrilled to photograph their family pregnancy sessions. I say family because although Danielle is featured in most of the studio shots we took, her husband Mike and their son "little Mike" are also featured.
We started the session with solo shots of Danielle while the guys watched a PBS documentary in the other room all about animals. The guys learned that the dolphin is the smartest animal!! The studio here is quite spacious and includes a private changing area with four different sets for quickly changing scenes and getting different looks. While Danielle was changing outfits, my female assistant and I were able to ready the next shot in no time.
We started off with the classic show off the belly shot and progressed to nude and semi nude images with artistic flair. All of these different images are going took great in the photo book that the family will be receiving with their pregnancy photo package.
I always strive for different looks and was quite pleased with this silhouette with the blue background signifying the baby boy growing and set to make his debut in approximately 4 weeks from now.
When it was time to bring the family all together we went with some playful shots with Danielle and her guys...
We also used the session as an opportunity for a family portrait. It was a sweet moment as everyone gathered together all smiles.
