A Special Dress: Maternity and 6 Months

While this was actually an on-location part of this adorable 6 month session, I thought it warranted it’s own post.  The first photo was taken during this couples’ Maternity Session in September 2013. We were able to do a golden-hour session, and the scorching Texas summer had dried most of the grass into wheat-colored stalks.  It was a warm photo-session (literally and in tone), and I loved the golden glow.  They held up the first dress that they bought together after they found out they were expecting a girl.

DSC_9024_WEBFast forward to May of this year when we were doing a 6 month session for their little-bit.  She now fit into that special dress above, so we wanted to re-create an image in the same location. However, the Spring rains had it lush and VERY green.  We knew we wouldn’t have much time with a little one near her bedtime, and an actual “golden-hour” was out of the question with sunset being so much later in the Spring.  So, we improvised and did a little post-processing to make the images more similar in tone to the maternity session.   Here is the image SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera) and the final image.


I love this family and their session.  Thanks so much W. family!!
