Soon To Be Three – Maternity Photo Session

Maternity Sibling Photography | Soft, Indoor, Natural Light | Paint the Moon Photoshop Actions

 

Editing and shooting details for those interested … edited using Paint the Moon Photoshop Actions with the Luminosity Collection – most of them used the action recipe with Luminous, Adeline (low opacity), Film Haze and Whispers. Taken with a Nikon 85mm 1.4G lens and a Nikon 35mm 1.4G lens all at f1.4 or f2, and at varying shutter speeds and ISO depending on the lighting (anywhere from ISO 100 to 640, and shutter speeds from 1/125 to 1/400 second). I used a tripod and self timer or remote for many of them and always give big kudos to my husband for being my human tripod when I needed his help (we had our good friend Robin Long do a little family session so we also have lots of photos with daddy in them as well)! Self portrait maternity shots are *not* easy! :)

The smaller tummy shots were taken at about 31 weeks and the later session was done at 35 weeks. We have just two and a half weeks now until our baby boy is due. I can’t believe we’re going to finally meet him any day now! This pregnancy has just flown by and I’ve cherished every minute of it – I adore being pregnant and feeling a precious life growing inside of me. There is truly is no other feeling like it in the world – a miracle and such a blessing. Thank you for letting me share my maternity photos and baby boy adventure to follow soon with you!

    I love watching your girls grow and expressing their love for each other. My daughter is due for her second child next Wednesday. She is so concerned about not letting her 19 month old feel left out. I told her she has enough love for them both and it will work out. Best wishes on the arrival of your little boy…can’t wait to see photos!!!

  6. WOW!!!!! I’m almost speechless. The way you captured these self portraits is beyond amazing. I can’t wait to see how gorgeous this little boy is of yours…can’t be anything but with how good looking a family you have. Congrats!!!

    You are such an inspirational beautiful person, as well as your children! I love your maternity photos! Congrats on baby boy, can’t wait to see pics of the little guy too!

  8. These pictures are so deliciously beautiful. They make me want to cry!;)

  9. Ever since I stumbled upon your blog…I’ve been obsessed with your blog! You are so talented! You have inspired me to start shooting self-portraits, not so much of myself but being involved in family photos. So, I have one main question about your maternity photo shoot. Are these self-portraits..? (No Photographer) If so, what lens are you using. Thank you! Have a blessed day!
