Before & After 2 | BTS on a maternity edit

Our second BTS editing blog is on a big favorite session this year, my maternity session with Kacey. Her session was so much fun to both shoot and edit; most images are corrected for tones, colors and more contrast. I was a big user of contrast filters in the dark room back in the day!

Remember, editing is there to enhance what you've already made. My editing process is based very heavily on my shooting process which, in turn, is designed to get in camera exactly what I want.

Before I even get into talking about this session, let me just put it out there that this session made me truly, deeply realize how much I absolutely love doing maternity work. It is just the pinnacle to me. I love the anticipation of a new life, i love the glow and joy of a new mama, i love the intense beauty of motherhood. Maybe I'm just a huge softy (maybe???) but maternity work is my hearts work.  

Now, let's just talk about how stunning this mama is!! Kristen volunteered for a model call I put out a few weeks back. I really was struggling with how to pick the 3 ladies for the model call and then I read an article about going with your heart when accepting clients and I knew it was going to be Kristen.  She is just everything you love in a person; sweet, open, warm and welcoming.  

 

We kicked off the shoot with a few hours of girly time; hair and make up and a stylist to get the perfect outfits and accessories for Kristen. Then, with Kristen's mom's help we got down to work and made some portraits of this special time in a mother's life.

The final set of images reflects not just how beautiful Kristen is ( inside and out) but also, i think, what kind of mother she will be( already is); soft, caring, gentle, joyful and loving .
