Today I photographed Julie and Nick Rost – Julie is about two weeks from giving birth to their first child – although Axel, their 4 month old puppy may well be considered their first child! Doing this photo session was probably a big leap for Dr. Nick ( he’s a remarkable chiropracter with an incredible gentle touch at Ken George and Associates of Stratham, (http://www.drkengeorge.com/healing_center.html). He’s a kind of shy guy who is way more comfortable in the background than being photographed. Julie, on the other hand, was so comfortable with the process you would have sworn she was a model! And Axel…well this dog is a photographer’s dream – and Dr. Nick took him out for a very long run before the photo shoot which I suspect helped to calm him as well.
So we played with the light in their home, added some sunshine with a gelled strobe and here’s some photos from the shoot – next, shooting the newborn.
