I thought the lighting suited this pregnancy pose very well — or perhaps it is the other way around?
I normally like to post just one or two images at a time, but it is good to break from the norm once in a while.
From a recent session, mom-to-be wrapped in white on a white backdrop. Trying to get a nice balance and sweep from the lines of the fabric. Two versions, one full, one pulled in more tight.

I get a lot of requests to do fabric draping. While draping on the bottom tends to be very effective, coverage for the top is a lot trickier and I find it is best left to other methods. When you try to use fabric for all your coverage you are essentially making a dress,…
