Joefe: Maternity portrait session

This entry wasn't supposed to go up in at least a least not before I've posted some of my other events, but I just got a text from Joefe saying that she is already in the hospital right this minute and is due to give birth to baby Tiffeny in a few hours. She asks for prayers, and I am sending her positive vibes through this blog.

We did this pictorial a couple of weeks ago, just before the non-stop rains started coming. We were very fortunate to get great weather on the day of the shoot. Joefe and I were able to discuss for a bit the session during her baby shower (pictures to be posted soon!) and through email, so we were on the same page when it came to how the session would go in terms of location, outfits, looks, etc. That's why I had an incredibly easy time shooting her. As I mentioned before, Joefe looked so good that my biggest challenge was to make her look like an actual pregnant lady, instead of a professional model!:)

Ok, enough blabbering. I made the mistake of telling Joefe that I was about to post her photos here, so she's probably checking my blog at the hospital right now instead of focusing on giving birth. Heheheh...Anyway, Joefe, this one's for you. Hope you have a safe delivery. Can't wait to meet Baby Tiffeny!:)

The first few shots are what I call "warm up shots". I usually take a few shots just to make the client feel comfortable in front of the camera. Most of the times, these photos don't make the final cut, but Joefe looked great from the first click of my camera that some of the photos actually made it to my list of favorites.

This photo looks like something straight out of a magazine, doesn't it?

I remember asking Joefe at this point if she had ever done any professional modelling. I realize it's actually a line often used by other photographers to flatter their subjects. But I really meant it when I asked Joefe. I mean, just look at her!

I told Joefe I had a lot of favorites from the session. This was one of them.

And this one.

This one too.

I love capturing real laughter.:)

Second outfit.

I love the photo on the right. Look at those lovely eyes!

Finally, it was cool enough to stay in the sun. When Joefe showed me the outfits she brought, I knew this white dress would be perfect for this last location!

I LOVE Joefe's expression here. I think I may be funny after all.:D

I have no words for the next few shots. I just love all of them.

I told Joefe I wanted to take a "non-preggy" portrait just to show how pretty she is.;)

Last shot! And again, one of my favorites!:D
