    A couple weeks ago my friend let me practice on her to get a shot for her Baby Shower invitations and you all gave me some great advice. SO yesterday I had my first official maternity session :) She is 37 weeks expecting her 3 child.

    C&C is welcome and appreciated

    These are my favorites so far...

    6. This one reminds me of a commercial for some kind of Earth Mama Organic product.

    nice shots :D

    It may just be me, but the color balance seems to be off in #4 and #5 with a little too much magenta.

    I think if you fix that, everything else will be perfect :)

    I like it! Number is fine with that much magenta, but I agree that number 5 may be a tad too much magenta.
    My favorite is number 4. STUNNING!

    thanks for the feedback. I had so much fun on this session and I can't wait to take more maternity photos.

    I can totally see the color is off now that you mention it so i will go back and fix that. ;)

    thanks ladies....the mom really really loved them :D I even got a great referral when she showed her pregnant friend who loved the photos so much that she plans on driving 2 hours to my area so i can take her photos when she is far enough along. I say that is a pretty awesome referral :)

    I absolutely love number 1 and 3. I think you did a great job, most just need the color correction as mentioned.

    The only thing I would add is for #2 and #3. In #2 her hands would look better if her fingers were not laced. Hands look best if you can keep the fingers together. What helps me to remember is to imitate a Barbie hand. I think your shots are great.

    Becky you've come very far in the last few months. These look great! I think I really like #3 the best. The B&W looks good there and I like how she looks like she's thinking about her baby on the way:)
