I must say it was a great honor to me to be able to freeze this moment in time that I know I will cherish forever (now imagine them :) )
Martim is the name of the baby inside (around 8.5 months by now) and Célia and Luis are the future parents of Martim.
Thank you so much Célia and Luis for trusting me to do this and for inviting me. :)
I must say that I was really scared when I got the invitation. Pregnancy Photography? I've never done it before!
Then I made a quick search online, got a few ideas, shared with them, discussed some places and then it was on. :)
So this is dedicated to Martim and the wonderful afternoon I took to meet him! Can't wait to see him outside in the world! :)
How did I planned this session? Simple, 2 scenarios: indoor and outdoor. Indoor, I've set-up a small studio inside their house (a white background with 2 white umbrella lights, using their couch with one umbrella light, etc). Outdoor, we went for a walk on the Oporto Botanic Garden (yes, I felt in love for that place - and it has great photo shooting areas too!).
I took more than 300 photos. For this I wanted to select some of them (my favorites), convert them to black & white (nothing against color but this was my feeling at the time of processing these photos) and publish them here (with their authorization, of course).
Hope you enjoy and don't be too harsh.. it was my first time doing this kind of photography. :P
