    I'm very new at this sort of work but it is proving to be a popular style so I'm trying it out.

    They're beautiful! Was she cold in #1? It almost looks like goosebumps too me...

    No, we had all the heat on as well as the fireplace. I'll look closer at the original, thanks!

    It wasn't a criticism, but maybe I'm just seeing some texture on her skin. I really, really like these.

    I love number 3 the most. The selective coloring with that beautiful yellow is wonderful, a great choice for maternity shots in my opinion!

    I used a 2X3 softbox slightly behind the subject to achive the 'rim' lighting. There is also an umbrella on the right side behind a bit also. This created a bit of bounce reflection from the white walls which washed the dark areas to give just a bit of detail in the shadows.

    Thank you all for your comments.

    These are beautiful! I love the posing too. I've done 2 maternity shoots out of my whoppin' 4 shoots and am still having a hard time being creative about my posing.

    Thanks! I think posing for maternity is much harder than for portraiture because there are not a lot of ways of shooting this that hasn't been done to death! I'm always looking for a new way to show something. Lighting is certainly one way of doing that.
