low key maternity picture with thin strip of light on pregnant belly taken in maine photography studio


A lot of our maternity images feature the shape of the pregnant belly, without necessarily showing skin, fabric, or maternity clothes.  This is a more abstract way of presenting the beauty of pregnancy, and there’s very little prep work required by our clients, who tend to be busy right before they’re due!

In this portrait we use light to outline Lexie’s form.

The lighting on Lexie in this image is created by hanging long, thin lights above and behind her, so that a strip of sharp illumination outlines her body as she lays back on the black settee.

It sounds simple enough, but it’s hard to replicate our images, so if you want maternity pictures like this in Maine, you’ll definitely want to contact us at Focus Photography.
