My friend asked if I wanted to practice maternity shots on her and of course I said yes. This is also posted in Kids/family but I want all the cc I can get. I did all of these in my dining room with natural light and some with my 430EX and lightsphere. I used a cream seamless paper and some shots were done with black seamless. The coloring on some of them is done with an action called sugar cookie from Paint the moon but some of them are normal coloring and almost look the same! Im thinking the cream might of thrown the color off a little? I've never shot with it before. The mom asked for pictures without her face in it so that is why they are all a different style. I browsed through flickr and got ideas from there!

Nice set. The last one is a bit of a cliche, but that's sometimes unavoidable with Maternity shots. The others are a little different from the norm though, and i really like them. ;)

Thank you! I did try to stay away from the normal maternity shots but did take a few :) I had a lot of fun with these!

Love the set, but I probably would have preferred the first shot to be like the fourth. Just my opinion.
Very creative!

Lot of originality there...I like it...but you did get some with the mom and dad faces too, right?

Thank you! Unfortunately no, I tried talking her into letting me take at least ONE of their faces and she said no :( She insisted on no face shots so I did what she said! ;)

Gotcha...but I do think she'll regret that. Again, nice job.

Thank you very much!! Yea I didn't think I would like it at first (cliche and especially selective coloring) but I like how it turned out and so did the mom!

Perhaps its just me, but my first reaction to the one of the feet was morbid. The feet are missing from the picture.... If I saw this particular one on its own, without the connotation of the rest, I would have felt saddened by it.
