I love working with clients like the Barbours. Both of them are realy creative poeple. Ron is heavily into his performing arts, and directs and acts in productions. Lauren loves working with her hands, and makes some of the most amazing clothes. Lauren pitched for the shoot with a truck-load of props and different bits and bobs, which made my job so much easier. The creative juices were really flowing here. She really did come up with some fantastic ideas. Thanks Lauren.
My wife sent me an article on ‘Seven great tips for maternity photography’ (www.natalienortonphotography.com), and an interesting point the author, Natalie Norton, made, was that there is something else about doing maternity photography on the beauty of an expecting mother in the great outdoors. And she is right. It is something else. It really complements that utterly natural condition of being pregnant that we so often take for granted. So, even though I don’t know you from a bar of soap, thanks to you, Natalie Norton.
I have to say that I would’ve preferred a sunny day with late afternoon sunshine to give an extra bit of golden glow to that which Lauren was already emitting, but had to settle for a more wintry afternoon with light spells of rain. No matter though. Like I said, Lauren brought her glow, with Ron there we had tons of extra chemistry, and it made for a memorable session of maternity photography. Looooovely!
