Moody Maternity Session

When Rachel booked me for her maternity session, she noted that my backlit, ethereal sunset shots are what caught her eye. Fast forward to the day of our shoot and it's Portland gray, chilly, and our location is taped off with crime scene tape. Not ideal conditions, to say the least.

Luckily, Rachel and John are good humored and ready to go with the flow, despite the weather and swarming police officers. After trying and failing to include doggy George in the session, I was able to convince Rachel to try on my new addition to my client closet (details to come on this!), and let me get some shots. We spent the next hour wandering around Lighthouse Field and then the beach before calling it a wrap. I told them that if the photos sucked we could just have a quick redo somewhere sunny and nice. 

Holy crap. Not necessary. The pictures came out SO beautifully that I think we all were pleasantly surprised. Check out our moody magic below.
