There is a reason why the famous masters painted and sketched nude women. The female form is inherently beautiful. Artists have always been drawn to it. I would argue that when a woman is pregnant, the female body is at its pinnacle. The ultimate perfection. How can it not be when it is creating and holding life within it? It has evolved beyond the woman into something more – something almost magical. Certainly something to be celebrated. Being a Chicago maternity photographer, I get to enjoy meeting couples during the prologue of their stories, right before the first chapter of the redefinition of their family.
When this gorgeous momma contacted me to tell me she was having her fourth son, I had some ideas. But then we talked more, and I realized this was a strong woman. This was a dynamic woman. And she was ready to shine. We started with a family picture with all these handsome men.
Then we got rid of the younger boys while this diva worked it. She was so glamorous, and I loved the dress she brought!
But what they really wanted was a WOW image of the two of them. Something sexy and bold. We nailed it with this one! It was so cool to do something different like this.
I could have photographed them all day. It is so fun when people are fearless in front of the camera. They really stars.
And of course, we had to do my flowing fabric signature shot.
