Expecting : Amanda & Josh

This is a very exciting post for me, for more reasons than one!

For starters, I had the opportunity to shoot my first maternity session, which was fantastic. Truly, I loved every moment and I am looking forward to incorporating my “Expecting” sessions into the business.

Also, this wasn’t just any maternity shoot, this was with a good friend of mine, Amanda. I didn’t feel so alone in the newbie department though, as this is Amanda’s first pregnancy. Amanda and I first met over three years ago in a radiography science class (boy am glad those days are behind us), but it wouldn’t be until about a year later that we connected again in a class. Our friendship grew and we spent the last ten weeks before getting our BS degrees as clinic partners and haven’t stopped chatting since. In fact, we were quite chatter boxes during the shoot too! Thanks for letting me spend an afternoon with you Amanda, I loved catching up and snapping some portraits of you. *Note to self: when working with friends- more snap, less chat :end note*

There is one more reason this was an exciting day for me, I got to officially break in my brand new Canon 5D mark II!! This camera really is all it’s been hyped up to be. I was shooting at ISO’s that my Nikon D80 could only dream of, and most importantly the pictures were clear! That’s right, image noise…. not for this girl! I haven’t even scratched the surface of the video capabilities on it yet. I also noticed my edit time was about a third of the time I had been spending on a similar amount of photos from other sessions. Granted I have been practicing and really feel like I have found my “style”, I’d like to believe it’s also because of the superior image quality the mark II provides.

On to Amanda… these first two I was just setting my exposure but I thought she looked quite cute.

Alright, I know that second one is a touch overexposed, but I had to play with my mark II and I actually like the result.

This little man was such a cutie, and loved being in front of the camera.

Thanks again, I can’t wait to meet little Lucy Claire!

I LOVE THE PICS!!! I enjoyed the session & always enjoy being around you. The job you did was incredible...I can't wait for our next session! By the way, my favorite pic is the one of Josh kissing my belly. Oh, yeah and the pink bow pic too.

Love Ya,
