18″x18″ sepia toned big belly maternity photographs printed on canvas.
A great way to present your favorite maternity photos is to create platform prints with matte, glossy, or metallic finishes. In this example you are looking at a 10″x20″metallic surface platform print with a black edge. I love the 10×20 format because it works really well with the natural vertical look of a pregnancy portrait. Why use an ordinary crop such as 8×10″ when you have the option of customizing the crop size to fit the photo? With platform prints, you also have the option of using wood, white, or aluminum edges. Platform prints don’t require extra framing they come with a backboard and are ready to hang. These photographs have a very contemporary look and can be hung on the wall or put on an easel and placed on any table. They are modern, classical and unique and are a great value. The lack of framing really puts the focus on the photo…so the photo better be good!

I have just completed a gorgeous newborn and maternity photography book for baby Kingston. I am showing the entire book here…it will be a 8×8″ hardcover book printed on a matte laminate paper. The focus of this book is Kingston as opposed to the pregnancy photos since so many of those we already made into beautiful wall pieces. The goal with this photo book was to keep it very simple and clean and have it highlight the intensity of Kingston’s face, his expressions and the beauty of the photographs. We choose to do simple and clean backgrounds so that there were no distractions. This book is meant to be a keepsake book for Kingston…I think one day he will love it.
I often ask for photos of a couple before a maternity photography shoot to get an idea of who they are, how they interact together, how they look on camera, their heights, hair color, style etc. I think it’s really fascinating to go back and look at the photos they sent me after the shoot is completed and I’ve worked with them and gotten to know them on a new level. It’s eye opening and magical almost to see how couples transform in my studio. Their personalities and physical beauty is revealed after doing a shoot and a whole new couple emerges from the photos. After a recent shoot I went back and looked at the photos my client sent me before the shoot and with their permission I am sharing both the before and after with you here with……
