Maternity Progression

This is one image from a series of images that I’m taking for a client. The final image will be a forward moving progression of her pregnancy. We decided to shoot different styles each time we meet (once a month) and this is by far, the most dramatic. I decided to pull out one image to experiment with stylizing. So far, I really like where it’s going – in particular, I really like her blonde hair against a purple background.

For those interested: it’s a 2 light setup. 1 Einstein with a strip box (and grid) overhead as a rim light and 1 Einstein camera right as key light. 7″ reflector with a 30 degree grid. Shot with a 5Dmk3 & 50mm lens.
