Pittsburgh South Hills Maternity Newborn Photographer | Pregnancy Composite Portrait

Last spring I did a very special project featuring beautiful mama and dancer, Laura M.  She and I met in the studio several times throughout her pregnancy to document the changes in her belly.  We got to try a lot of different things, including something I am very proud of, a composite image of months 5, 6, 7, and 8 of her pregnancy:

This was my greatest challenge to date because it was very important that I shoot each image to the exact specs of the previous images to create a sense of consistency in the final image. I had to make it look like they were all shot on the same day even though they were each a month apart.  I took a lot of notes on my camera & light settings and the locations of my lights.  It was also tricky in editing… those of you who have extracted an image in Photoshop know what I’m talking about!  By the time we were on months 7 and 8 I had it down though.  I thought it turned out extraordinarily well and am so proud of it and thankful that Laura is so patient and talented!

Here are some other images from her maternity sessions:


She also had the cutest, chunkiest little sweet baby, Hank:
