    Your tone seems angry, so I will try not to stir the pot on what seems to be a sensitive issue.

    I am all three things: a man, a father and a photographer. I think all three perspectives have a hand in how my response was formulated.

    Please keep your attitude in check, the OP did his best to answer your question, your response seems overly aggessive and really, how is he suppose to know the answer to your vague question.

    To the OP, i quite like these, they have a kind of ethereal effect, it may be worth seeing if the model likes this look.

    Lets start again to clarify with apologies. Apparently my questions came across as harsh demands. It was not intended to:

    A picture is work a thousand words.

    This set of photos (and the others in color) are reminiscent to me of Renaissance Paintings where women were painted in the nude in huge garden settings, looking away with expressions of forlorn and despair.

    I had asked if she was having a boy as a result of the colors of the cloth. That was asked to detemine if there was a tie in to her pregnancy and the color she chose for the session. There was none. Not sure if there was supposed to be or not.

    So when pictures create thoughts and impressions, my question is why was this woman posing for these photos. What is motivating her. Is it for her, is it for her child?

    They are solitary, they are lonely, they are absent of joy or happiness, they have little to no relevance to the child she is carrying.

    Was this a Maternity Shoot or was it something else?

    When I asked if it was known why she posed....Did the photographer and the subject decide what they wanted to accomplish with this session? Did the subject disclose why she was holding this session... Did that conversation take place to understand each others objectives. Were they met.

    So those were my thoughts, questions and wonderings as a result of the session.

    My comments about the photos themselves, looking at them with a camera eye, as I said, I do not care for the B&W treament, I think it creates a further lack of intimacy due to her pregnancy. If she were not pregnant I might have a different impression. I can't say for sure, but I am leaning toward soft porn for the overall session rather than a capture of a monumental event in the life of a woman.

    I know why Demi posed, I know why I had snaps taken of me while pregnant....no wait. I already said that.

    Thanks, Arch. I have added them to her personal gallery along with the original images. She has not made her print selections yet, but her initial reaction was that she loved the set I had processed... 36 images to choose from.

    I have to go view your other photos but I wanted to say that I love these, they have a very soft erotic feel that I appreciate in pregnant women because I feel that a lof of pregnant women lose their confidence and feel they aren't sexy when really .. the natural beauty of carrying another life in you is astounding, so well done on capturing that!
