I'm gearing up to get in a photography mood. Bailey has asked that I take her maternity pictures, including ones with her and Michael. That's a lot of pressure. I've seen some really cute maternity pics out there, so I know I'll be stealing shamelessly. However, I don't want to get too cliche - you know how one shot gets a LOT of use, like the way you make a heart shape with your thumbs and forefingers on the pregnant belly? Super cute but hasn't it been done a lot? I'm probably offending someone, I'm sure.
So I'm up for any and all suggestions. I know you have Facebook friends that have posted maternity shots, so think back and revisit their pages for me.
In the meantime, I really must get a new lens. I'm either going ebay or brand new, but I have to get one soon. I recently took some rather spur-of-the-moment pictures of Addison with my 55m lens, and although they turned out great, I know a new lens is a must for future portraits. You wouldn't believe how hot and humid it was on this day...amazing that it's not noticeable.
My camera has a stabilizer and I used a tripod, but still got some pictures that weren't as clear as I wanted, like this one. Not sure what else I should be doing:
I love this one. I think this is the one her dad requested to have an 8 x 10 of for his home:
I like hands in pictures, in case you hadn't noticed. It's how most of us often sit or relax, with our heads or chins resting in our hands. I like when hair blows in the face or eyes squint when you laugh - natural stuff. But maternity pics? That's a new one for me. Help!
