I met Danielle through a model call. I'm always studying and researching trying to better my craft. I take online courses, attend workshops, go to conferences, etc. After taking a recent lighting course, I was dying to try out all of the fabulous things I've learned. Danielle was kind enough to let me photograph her sweet baby bump.
Two of the different lighting techniques I learned in the class were called "Dream lighting" and "Rim lighting." We had time to practice both.
Dream lighting is exactly as it sounds. It gives a dreamy, clean feel to the pictures (almost heavenly). I loved the way these turned out.
Rim lighting is lighting just a small portion of the person or subject. It is a beautiful way of highlighting a significant portion of the image to make a powerful statement. I like that it can be very dramatic and emotional. We were able to incorporate a stuffed animal that had been passed down in Danielle's family. It added that much more life to the portrait.

My husband has known this couple since his childhood. He and Mike raced together from teenagers till now. Although kiddies and life sometimes get in the way of racing. It has been my pleasure to watch them grow. I had the chance to photograph their first baby almost 2 years ago. Now that little baby is about to be a big brother to a sweet little girl. I couldn't be more excited.
Big brother was so overjoyed with excitement that it was hard for him to keep still. Reminded me of my little guy who is soon to be turning 2 as well.
Mama just simply glowed. She is already an amazing mother and I know will do a fabulous job with this little princess.
Stay tuned to see the little princess herself in just a few short weeks...
