I am not sure how I got to your site LOL... but I hope to give you a few tips. I grew up in Massapequa so when I saw Long Island on your profile I had to throw you a comment. I definitely am not the best that is out there but hopefully you will get some inspiration for your maternity couple. (1) Look at your background, see what is behind the people that you are shooting. (2) angle, you obviously have a beautiful couple to work with but you want to try to not shoot up like the 4th photo. (3) if indoors bounce your flash to the ceiling so you have softer lighting (4) Take them outside!! Go to the beach, Tobay, Jones, Captree, where ever you are closest or Bayshore, Port Jeff by the docks.. get them to wear some cool funky clothes they feel great in that is their style. I am attaching a studio link I did of a session of my husbands cousin and my friend. I was very comfortable with them so we had a great time. I would definitely suggest to get this couple out to the beach right about 6:30 NY time. The most flattering light of day is morning/dawn and dusk/sunset. Do a sunset shoot with them and see what you get. She looks pretty close so don't loose your moment. Also talk to them about shooting their newborn the next day after delivery with the couple. Enjoy and have a great time! http://carlahughesphoto.smugmug.com/Portraits/Kate-Maternity/11129732_ZHKdT#779823769_wV8kC

So excited, my friends children having their first baby and they asked me to take pictures. They are both so beautiful I wanted to share. I could use some help ….
