    maternity sessions are big in usa arn't they?

    i dont know anybody that has has them done in england.

    i dont understand the appeal.

    the big stretched stomach is not attractive and its not a pic you would have on your mantel piece is it?

    but if its what the customer wants they are clear sharp and interesting poses

    Jols, that's bit harsh!!!! Many women think that pregnancy is also time to celebrate the beauty of their bodies during that season of their lives! Maybe the photos are not for the mantlepiece, but rather as part of the journey in celebrating the miracle of a new life!

    Brianne, I think you have some lovely poses. Some of the pics are a bit "dark" for me, but my style is bright, so it might very well just be a personal thing.

    I generally don't like selective colouring, but I love the one with his name!

    Well done! I'm sure they will absolutely LOVE them!

    sorry that was a bit harsh when i re read.

    the photos, im sure they will be well pleased with them.

    i was just noticing the difference between usa and uk regarding maternity pics.

    didnt mean to offend, but i agree it did sound harsh and i apoligise

    Thanks alot! I noticed you mentioned liking brightness in your portraits. It really depends on the subject with me. lol Apparently alot of people like the selective coloring...both clients requested it. I did them both ways just for a choice.

    I simply love these. I also use wooden blocks for the name, and do selective colouring!! Great minds, hey :)
    Anyway, my fave is the one with the siblings.

    They saw the raw pictures, before any editing. Both seemed very pleased. One had abdominal scars from a past surgery that she wanted removed so I think she'll be even happier with the final outcome.
    I'm Meeting with them in a few hours to let them choose the poses they want.

    Thanks so much! I Just wish i could have put more of the little blond boy in, but alas, Not enough background...lol I could have moved them around to make room, but poor mom had a hard enough time getting down there to begin with so I decided to make do and not put her through it. lol

    I'm doing a monthly session with my son's step mom (she just found out she's expecting again) and I did her first one Saturday also. We used the blocks to spell out 7 weeks.
