Melissa Maternity

As the story goes, this maternity shoot for Melissa was actually used as a distraction while Mario's family was at home setting up for her surprise baby shower. Ive known Mario for the past 10 years, so I really wanted to try something new and make these special. We deconstructed my front living room and used the window as a main light. Originally we were planned to shoot outside, but shooting outside at 4pm practically suicide in this Arizona heat. So we improvised and by simplifying the whole approach it helped me focused more on using the direct light to highlight Melissa's belly. After looking at the whole collection of finished images I couldn't help but to get a little teary eyed. Congrats you two on the twin baby boys. Salud
