Lindsay’s maternity shoot was a gift from her friends to her and her husband Dustin. Needless to say, I was flattered to be asked to do this! I also had to deliver on something magical because she’s bearing twins, which makes for an interesting shoot since I feared that she wouldn’t be able to do too many adventurous poses. As you can see by the photo above, my fears were unnecessary. Using a piece of white fabric I picked up for the shot just below, I had Dustin holding the back of the fabric and while a fan blew it upwards, he threw the fabric up so it would catch the wind as she did her dance pose.


Lindsay also had some other shots in mind. I love a subject who is engaged in the shoot and has definite goals set. You know she’s working hard if she comes prepared. This one was one of her suggestions, a simple vintage looking shot of her holding her belly outside:


She also wanted to do the traditional hand-heart-belly shot, which we nailed, but then we took it one step further by making this shot with some eggs bearing their twins initials:


I love it because it’s a somewhat abstract family photo. I did the selective color because we only had brown eggs on hand, and I wanted them pink, but it looked odd in full color so I went with this.

We also did some clean studio shots on a white background. Lindsay was a trooper for this shot. She tried to keep those legs up, but the twins didn’t allow it 😉 We had Dustin hold her feet and I removed his hand in post.




We had to get at least one traditional family photo:


And finally, I wanted to share this shot. I simply love the look of pride in her expression.


I wish the best of luck to Lindsay & Dustin and their future family! You can see the full set of photos right here.

    Love these photos. Dustin is my son and of course Lindsay is my terrific daughter-in-law. I am so glad she was able to accomplish this since she was on bedrest. She was so afraid she wasn’t going to be able to do some of things she wanted to. You did an awesome job capturing the feelings in the photos. Thank you very much. Phyllis
