    I've never taken maternity pictures before so this was my first attempt. We were in her grandma's guest bedroom which did not have good light or decent furniture to work with so I had to improvise by hanging a sheer curtain from the posts of the bed, stripping the comforter off the bed and using the white quilt underneath and using my 580EXII shot through a softbox.

    This first picture is cropped funny because it had a lot of dead white space above her and I thought it looked better this way (??). I know she is kind of tilted and I wish I could straighten her out, but I don't know if it's worse to cut off her hand..what do you think?

    Thanks for any input.

    This next one was more within my comfort zone.

    I love number one. Your model is gorgeous!

    #2 - kind of an awkward crop...and angle. I see what you're going for, highlighting her belly, but being a man, that picture highlights something else entirely...probably not what you were going for.

    #3 is fun, I just wish dad was a little more in focus.

    Maybe try black and white on #2 to see if that helps put more focus on the belly?

    Good job on the photos!
