7 weeks is all there is between these two lovelies. My wife (left) and my sister are both pregnant. My wife is due this week and according to her, it couldn’t come fast enough! My sister is also feeling the effects of a second child and secretly wishes that she could give birth soon too!
My sister had come over with her family and our mum and asked if she could get a photo with my wife before she gave birth. A great idea, and I said, give me 2 minutes! in that time, I had set up my lighting and was ready! Again it was one speedlight in a softbox, 2 LED torches but this time no reflector… because I forgot!
I changed the position of my softbox to camera left this time and had it at a 45 degree angle rather than front on. I wanted a bit more shadow on their faces. I had my camera setup in manual and the settings hadn’t changed from the last portrait session so it was just a matter of setting focus and we were away.
Mum wanted to get in on the action… well, we forced her too. It was worth it as the photos came out great and it was a proud moment for her as all she wanted was a big family! She’ll have an even bigger family soon!
Ruby and Sohan joined in at the end which made a great photo! To make Ruby laugh, my brother-in-law tickled my head which got a great reaction from her. Sohan, well, he’s just a cool dude! I would’ve arranged the kids to be more central to balance the photo, but it’s such a nice family photo that I don’t really mind!
