By no means do I think these are "professional", but I do want professional advice to make them better, so I wanted to post in here. A coworker's son and his fiance are having a baby and she wanted me to take some maternity pictures. It wasn't supposed to be for a few more weeks, so my backdrop just arrived yesterday and I'm still learning to use my speedlight that I got about a week ago! I also found the place I planned was a bit too cramped, so I was having some problems there. This is my first photo shoot at all and being it was maternity with a protective Mom (my coworker) that wanted no skin, it was a little difficult at first, but she started to relax and we got some belly. Here are the best... 1. 2. 3. 4.
