Molly & Carl's Maternity Shoot

So here we are, my first ever maternity photo shoot. One of my wife's best friends asked me to photograph her maternity shoot with her fiance and I accepted with pleasure. One new technique I decided to use with this couple was pre-posed illustrations. I set up a computer loaded with poses to display, in order to help them be more comfortable in front of the camera. This isn't something I normally do in my portrait sessions, however, I believe it's useful to incorporate this technique in a situation where both parties are new to a professional experience. Without further ado, please meet Molly & Carl.    :-)
