Maternity Shoot: Kayla & Cory, Take 2

Yesterday Kayla and Cory came over to my home studio for our second session. I am so grateful to this couple for being open to me and allowing me the privilege of photographing this very special time in their lives.  Here are just a few from our session.

Model Shoot: Maternity

Kayla is expecting in about two months and posted on one of the Facebook photography groups I frequent that she was interested in getting some maternity shots done for her portfolio. We met, hit it off, and will be working together over the next couple of months to try out various techniques. Last Sunday, I met with Kayla and her husband, Cory, to do a ‘getting to know you’ shoot.

I shot these in a natural light studio on a dark and rainy day, so my ISO was averaging 800 and I shot fairly wide open (with a tripod…no hand-held for this session). I like the softness of these images.

Here are a few.

I can finally show these off

I had to keep this shoot under wraps as I did not know which image they were ultimately going to use, and everything about the wedding was very hush-hush, but daughter and (now) son-in-law approached me at the beginning of August for some updated engagement portraits.

This one was the one they chose to use…
