    go with really soft window type light. i would do two contrasts. One high key with the skintone just barely peaking out with a soft accent light.

    and the other complete dark with very soft edge lighting.

    and then feel out your mother to be, see what she has in mind and work it from there. Everyone know they are preggo at this point but make sure you dont just accent the stomach wrong and make the mom look fat. remember flat hands not curled hands on belly if u try those shots.

    I don't think this type of photo exists...

    At least I haven't seen it yet.

    That is a fantastic shot. But isn't someone going to chime in about the rule of thirds, and chopped off head and where's the left half of her body...??



    Seriously though, it captures a feeling beautifully...

    I thought that was a dude laying ass-up with underwear pulled down, then I realized it was a preggo chick. :ugh:

    I think I'm subconsciously homo-gay mega-pozzed :wtc:

    You've caught the gay.

    But yeah, that's kind of the joke. I took that, and Girth had to ruin it for me by pointing out the exact same thing. Now I can't unsee it!
