Sometimes, even though you specialize in one type of photography you will end up doing another. This was my first foray into maternity photos.
This was also a last minute shoot. We had discussed doing maternity photos shortly after she got pregnant but it never worked out until last week; and as of the writing of this post, Kristen and Dylan welcomed their baby girl to the world last night.
Lately most of my photography has been relatively minimalistic. For this shoot, I used my Fuji X-T1 with 56mm lens and two speedlights, and alternated between a small shoot-through umbrella and a home-made beauty dish for my light modifier. We were also in very cramped quarters for the shoot so it was challenging trying to get the lighting how I wanted it, but I think it all worked out in the end.
