A few weeks back, a young couple contacted me about shooting some portraits for their upcoming birth announcement. The mother-to-be is still early in her pregnancy, so the question becomes: How does one illustrate the idea of pregnancy when the mother isn’t really “showing”? Enter a 40-year-old baby carriage (her idea) and a gorgeous setting (my idea). #maternity #portrait #vscofilm #nikon #familyphotographer (at Vista Valley Country Club)
