One of the most challenging things I have done as a photographer is to photograph women in the final stages of pregnancy. This is a time when to us they look beautiful, but to them they are feeling fat, uncomfortable and ready for the whole experience to be over. To get them to relax enough to capture this special moment in their lives can be a real challenge.
Today’s model is Elyse and she is two weeks away from giving birth to her daughter. With her mother to keep a check on how she was looking (and to provide the clothing) we managed to achieve some stunning images of Elyse that I hope she will enjoy for many years to come.
