Preggo photoshoot

As I’ve been mentioning, my friend…let’s call her Erin, invited me along on a photo shoot of hers and I jumped at the idea. Figuratively of course.

I didn’t know what to expect since I’ve never witnessed a professional shoot before, so it was neat being able to soak in how it all worked, all while biting my tongue with a bazillion questions that I wanted to ask. I kept quiet (for the most part) since she was technically working and I didn’t want to disrupt her.

We “scouted” out the location before the couple arrived, looking for the best backgrounds and lighting.

Props were brought and we played around with them a wee bit before they showed up.



Then the couple arrived and they talked.

They walked

And she went to work snapping away.

Towards the end, I was asked to find a spot with the setting sun that didn’t have high school football players in the background…not an easy task I must say, since they were practicing on the field directly in between us and the sun. But I found a perfect spot! Only problem was it was way far away from them and I had to walk (at my slow pace) back, share the location, and have us 4 walk all the way to it. I asked the sun to hold off setting until we got back, but he wasn’t very nice and I swear started to speed up the setting process just to spite me.


Shoot complete. As they wrapped up the business end, I snapped away to catch what sun was left and was eager to get Erin back in front of the camera before it was completely gone.

Did I forget to mention this was going to be a picture overload? Oops, just so you’re prepared, this is a picture overload. …too late??

Pin It Now!
