Elaine contacted me to do a maternity shoot for her and she left it wide open for me to decide what we should do. Since she is an amazing artist I felt a lot of pressure to preform to her standards. I like being pressured to do well so this wasn't a bad pressure. I wanted to pack in as much as I could into one session since photographing one person can leave one feeling that I'll have less content to provide. So I thought of a location that provided the most diverse backgrounds and I decided to do a gender guess with a color backdrop. Elaine did't know the gender until her baby was born...and it is a girl!
