It’s not as easy as one would think, but I learned a lot. This is my daughter Amy and her husband Jon who are expecting their first child in May, my first grandchild. She volunteered for some maternity photos. She already had some ideas of locations and poses she wanted, so this helped a lot. I learned that the photographer is responsible for posing people, hopefully in ways that look relaxed and natural. The photographer must also keep the light in mind, and we had some very intense sunlight at the beach and in the park. At the beach, even the flash didn’t light them as much as I wanted against the sunlight reflecting off the water. I also need to be more conscious of light falling on the subjects so they aren’t squinting, or parts of faces are in shadow, or other light related conditions that may be a problem. But, in an afternoon, in the conditions we had to work with, we got some photos that are acceptable (I hope!)
