    A friend of my sis in law is pregnant, and asked me to take a few photos of her,She was going to get a freind to take some pics with her little P&S but then they remembered me and that I said i can always use some practice, so if they ever need photos taken to just ask.

    Taken with a Nikon D50, and SB600 mounted on camera.

    wow awesome shots. Only complaint is d bacground of #11. great shot of the model but the mechanical device in background and the vent right next to her isn't so appealing. oh and your model is a tad bit 2 orange in 2, 3 and 5 on my screen. still loving the shots.

    These are nice. Very good composition.

    While I love #9, her hand over the one eye is kind of bugging me.

    And #3, I'm not on a calibrated monitor, but the skin looks to have some greenish tones to me.

    4, 6 & 12 are my favorites. #9 would be in there too if it wasn't for her eye being covered.

    ^^^^^^^

    +1. My favorite. But then again, the only maternity shots I've ever done were B&W nudes.

    The clothed, color type shots just don't inspire me.

    4,6,7,9,10,and the last image are all pretty nice shots. This subject is often handled rather tackily, but your photos have a lot of style and class. I chuckled when I saw the Made in USA one.

    Even though I like the above poses, the flesh tones on the earlier shots have a very strong, objectionable yellow hue,and the highlights on the dress in shot 4 are badly blown out. Re-processing the earlier images to bring her skin tones into line with the later shots would make the set look much better.

    all are classic shots, since the most important part, the belly is well covered in each shot caring for her emotions as well.

    #9 & #10 are my favorites. All of these are really good, but could use a few edits IMO, but I'm sure the mommy to be was thrilled with these!
