Maternity Shoot, #2

Firstly, a big congratulations to Louise and Rohan on the birth of wee Audrey. Time goes so quickly early on and she's 3 weeks old already!

The first shoot with Louise was really successful, and we got a lot of really excellent photos (some of which you've seen already). It meant that this second shoot could be a bit more experimental.

I've always loved the ethereal look of a long-exposure ocean shot, and we decided to try to incorporate that with a glowy pose on the rocks in the late sunset.

And it worked. The water looks like cloud, and Louise is a gun at sitting still, even with waves sometimes splashing her in the face.

A photo idea similar to this has been brewing in my mind for a long time, but I've not had a chance to shoot it. This shoot (and shot) was a good reminder for me to just go and do it!
