I photographed the wedding of Karen and Eric about 7 years ago. This still amazes me! Now they live in NYC and are expecting their first baby. Karen is close to due but was a very willing and able subject as we used different places in their apartment on the West Side. Karen is a shy type and was nervous but even dared to get just a little racy and looks beautiful! Of course the feline kids got in on the action but what are you going to do…they are part of the family! Congrats guys!!
Some hints for pregnancy portraits:
- Do it around the eighth month. You are large enough to show but not so large that it’s uncomfortable.
- Include the whole family! The dad, other children and the pets.
- Dress in the dad’s shirt or shorts. It’s a way of incorporating him in the portrait that may just be belly.
- Hands on the belly are so simple but say so much.
