    My wife and I went to visit some friends and I had my camera and a few lenses so we went out to a park for a very cold and quick bunch of shots...

    Nikon D80
    Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8
    Occasional SB-600 for fill (First time using it...)

    C&C Much appreciated

    7* makes your hands start to shake really quick! lol, is 6 too many to ask for C&C? if so, sorry

    The lighting seems to be pretty harsh on most of the shots.

    they are decent, they do not blow me away, did you do some editing on these? some of the brighter ones look enhanced.

    They're pretty Cliche.

    I'm biased because I look as maternity pictures as a documented biological function rather than preservation of a miracle. I don't really care about what's going on with other peoples private affairs but I understand that they shouldn't be completely dismissed. If you're showing them off to others to impress them (greedy inlaws excluded:D) it's not doing much.

    If they're for "scrap booking" purposes I think they're great.

    To grab the attention of someone who doesn't give two peanut decorated ****s about breeding, the last one is absolutely fantastic. I see it as two people taking simultaneous steps to the future.

    I know I'm a minority with my opinions on photos like these, but they're just that....opinions.
    Technically, I think #1 and #4 are great photos. The de-saturation of #4 looks nice.

    Thanks for the opinions and comments, yea we were just out and decided to get some pictures, she's got another 5 months to go so we decided we'd do some trial shots

    I am with you all on the "cliche" of the pics, I'm always up for something different, in the last set I had I got some great shots when "she" didn't think we were ready yet and the candids seem to be some of the best

    hopefully the next bunch will be less cliche and predictable :)

    One more thing, they were taken @ f/2.8 @ 1/160th, do you think that was too slow for pictures in the snow lol ? (that stuff is a great reflector

    there was little editing as far as brightness, the only real editing was cropping and saturation

    i think the saturation is what did it, however i think number 4 is the best of the bunch

    I'd wait until she's got a bigger bump to do the formal portraits.... she hardly looks pregnant to me... i agree with the others about the lighting.

    editing in to say that ooops, i read your post again and saw that you were visiting friends and happened to have the camera... so disregard my statement about waiting to do the portraits... i didn't realize it was a spur of the moment thing :lmao:
