I had the honor of photographing Stephanie and Travis’ wedding last December, and now I had the honor of photographing their maternity photos. We had a bit of a scare because the weather was looking rather gloomy, but we caught a break with only a little bit of light drizzle and none of the continuous rain that was predicted. This was also my first time taking photos at Seattle’s Volunteer Park, which turned out to be a great suggestion from Stephanie thanks to all the beautiful fall colors. I took the first few photos with my Nikkor 24-70mm ƒ2.8, but then decided to switch to the Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ2.8 VR2. The 70-200 VR2 proved to be an excellent portrait lens and I’m starting to like using it more for portraits than my beloved Nikkor 85mm ƒ1.8D. Anyway, special thanks go to my good friend Erica May for her great assistance in taking these photos!
And a few of my favorites:
