    Only my second ever maternity shoot. CC welcome, just keep it KIND, no need to be cruell :) :greenpbl:

    1) I played with a bit and liked the vintage look:

    Overall, I am fairly happy with how these turned out. The client loves the photos too. She has really bad stretch marks, and was really glad that I edited them out. But as I am still learning I would appreciate ADVICE and IDEAS.
    TFL.

    I like the one with the beads in selective coloring but do you have one in color with the name blocks. I might also consider not making the ring AND the beads be colored but maybe just the beads. Nice ideas here.

    What type of lighting are you using? I have found that clients prefer a more dramatic style of lighting, so the focus is more on their curves... when you do flat lighting, it highlights "flaws" or makes them feel heavier than they are, if that makes sense... :)
