A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to take maternity photos for a friend. It was an absolutely perfect Hawaiian morning on the beach. The waves were huge, the sky was that perfect Hawaiian blue, and the weather was just right. I had a lot of fun playing around with different poses and capturing the light. She’s absolutely glowing in these photos! She gave birth to a sweet baby girl this week. Thankfully her husband was able to make it home just in time!
One of my friends was nice enough to pose for some portraits, so I could practice for one of the classes I’m taking. For the assignment we were to capture five different types of lighting. The instructor suggested we shoot at either 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. in order to be able to do all five types of lighting at once. In all honesty, I prefer to shoot around 4 p.m. because I think the light is less harsh. But, being a good student I did as assigned. I was able to get a few pictures of her lightening fast two year old. Running after this guy in wet, sinking sand was a workout! Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
