37 things that a husband should say to his wife.

A healthy marriage is a safe haven where we can relax and
recuperate from the tensions of everyday life. We need to
hear positive things from our mate! These are 37 things I want to say to Desirée these days!

“Good Job!”
“You are wonderful.”
“You look great today.”
“I don’t feel complete without you.”
“I appreciate all the things you have done for me.”
“You come first in my life, before kids, career, or friends.”
“I am glad I married you.”
“You are the best friend I have.”
“If I had to do it over again, I’d still marry you.”
“I wanted you today.”
“I missed you today.”
“I could not get you out of my mind today.”
“It is nice to wake up next to you.”
“I will always love you.”
“I love to watch your eyes when you are smiling.”
“As always, you look good today.”
“I trust you.”
“I can always count on you.”
“You make me feel good.”
“I am so proud to be married to you.”
“I am sorry.”
“I was wrong.”
“What would you like?”
“What is on your mind?”
“Let me just listen.”
“You are so special.”
“I can’t imagine my life apart from you.”
“I wish I were a better husband.”
“What can I do to help?”
“Pray for me.”
“I am praying for you today.”
“I prize every moment we spend together.”
“Thank you for loving me.”
“Thank you for accepting me.”
“Thank you for being my girl.”
“You make each day brighter.”

Marta Elena

So, I don’t do pregnant session that often. I don’t have much clue about poses and pregnancy photos ideas.  So when Marta Elena asked me to make some photos of her I was willing to do it as long as she collaborates with the making of the images. I told her bring the props and choose a location and let’s give it a try. I am glad we did, she is beautiful and a joy to work with.

How do I photograph a pregnant woman? well, almost the same way I would do a non-pregnant one. 🙂 I start with some shots to test lighting and to warm her up…

Then seek for a good place with plenty of light. In the middle of the day is becoming my favorite time to shoot.
Some head-shots…
One of my favorite moments was when the baby started kicking inside the mom’s belly.
I had a feeling that I would get some natural expressions from the mom because of that…
and she still kicking in there….
shooting from the ground…

from the side without moving her a completely different image
When the background is much brighter the subject gets darker very fast and it’s a great opportunity to tell a story with a silhouette image.
Then we headed to a park, the stop I wanted was taken by another photographer and while we were waiting for our turn I noticed that the light at 7:30PM of the sun setting was really nice one her and on the background. I, then snapped these frames really quick.
Thanks for visiting.

cristy pre-session

Cristy is turning 15 and we went to the mountains for this session. She is fun and it was a joy to take some pictures of her.

Having the ciclist in this picture wasn’t an accident at all. Since I typically take a ridiculously amount of pictures I can have fun and try different things.
there were some ants climbing her leg here and she was still able to make a great smile.

kelsi pregnancy

This is Kelsi and she is going to have a baby.
This is her husband…
One of my favorite things to happen in a photo-shoots is when I get a couple in love. To capture the connection they both have for each other is a priceless experience for me as a photographer. This did not started as  a love session. It was supposed to be a pregnant session. While I still think we accomplish the purpose to register the pregnancy of Kelsi, but above all I think we were able to capture the love they have for each other as well.
