Hot Pink Maternity Shoot

Pssst. I’ve got a secret to tell you. Hot Pink Studio is pregnant. Well the studio isn’t pregnant but the beautiful girl who is behind the boudoir and portrait studio is pregnant. Melissa and I have known eachother for a few years now. We were acquaintences that would wave hello and chit chat once in a while. It was about 2 years ago during one of those chit chats that a nugget was dropped. We both realized we were photographers. Well once that tid bit was shared we couldn’t stop talking photography. We had more than a few lunches together, a lot of quick conversations, and we even started a photo club together. So I was honored that she asked me to do her maternity shoot. Here are some of the wonderful images we came up with.

Sarju P. – Maternity

I had the opportunity to photograph a great friend who is expecting her first child. She was beautiful and lasted an entire day of shooting. Maternity shoots like these are great when mommy-to-be and baby are energetic and willing to try everything.

Kavita S. – Maternity

Here’s Kavita my wife. I never got an opportunity to take full advantage of a pregnant woman living with me. Kavita and I had so many great ideas for images we wanted to capture while she was pregnant, unfortunately we both were unbelievably busy and time together was used to prepare for Jaymin’s arrival. I snuck some shots of her baby bump in during an engagement shoot in Washington DC and again only 7 days before she gave birth. I was so disappointed I didn’t get time to do more with her.

She really wanted a silhouette of herself and we never could get the time to pull it off except early on in her pregnancy at the beach. Never when she had her full belly which she was so proud of. This was one of the reasons why I decided to take time off from the business. If I didn’t have time to take pictures of my wife what would that mean about time with my son? As you can see in one of the images below he was ready to come out. Kavita’s belly moved so much for a few minutes it looked like he was doing somersaults.

Shafa D. – Maternity

Shafa was looking for a different style of maternity images when she was pregnant with her second child. I decided to pull out the studio’s new black backdrop and use some dramatic lighting and creative post processing.

Kelly L. – Maternity

Kelly has been a friend for years. Hers was the first wedding I brought a camera to. She was also one of my first headshots. As a friend Kelly and I were really close and when Kelly struggled to get pregnant it was a struggle for all of us. After years of trying, numerous doctor’s appointments and a hundred pee tests, Kelly found out the good news at the end of 2007. She was having twins! She was so proud of her baby bump she didn’t even want me to Photoshop out her linea nigra.
