Natural Maternity PortlandBeating the rain was a primary goal in this early February outdoor natural maternity session in Portland, OR. Client had her heart set on outdoor photos with the Pacific Northwest as the backdrop. Client was posed with the sun behind her as we created a soft angelic image of an expectant mother. And isn’t she radiant?.For this location we chose Fort Vancouver as the natural outdoor setting. Off camera flash was used to fill in the missing light and to create a warm inviting image. .This was shot with the Nikon D810 and a 70-200 2.8 lens. .Apart from the rain, we had fun creating the images she imagined for her maternity gallery. .Just love her beautiful white maternity dress set against the natural browns and greens. Such a gorgeous mother to be!Keywords: Fort Vancouver (15), maternity (78), newborn (99). 1/500; f/3.2; ISO 500; 160.0 mm.
