Occasionally sequels are pretty cool. Empire Strikes Back. Aliens. Lethal Weapon 2. This list also includes the return of Tom and Erin Daly.
They came to me in 2012 for some maternity portraits. I love the daring individuals who see work on my website, although not quite their specific type of photography, and contact me asking what I could do in my style for them.
So Tom and Erin got together with me in 2012 and we did some location work and some studio portraits.
I give Erin and Tom big kudos, because they let me come up with this:
(Tom, Erin & Grace, 2012)
I still love this image. I think when I was explaining how I wanted to set up the shot they were skeptical, but I think once they saw the image it sold them.
That's Grace there in her belly. Ready to burst upon the world.
Cut to 2015, and Tom and Erin and now Grace contacted me to let me know they'll be having a new addition to their family, and they wanted to get together, this time with Grace, and take some new family maternity portraits.
More images after the cut:
Grace is a fireball. But she behaved and we got some images that are the perfect counterparts to our first session. Only this time, Grace got to be in them and her mysterious new brother was about to burst upon the world.
I had an extremely good time seeing these guys and gals again. And for meeting Grace in person for the first time.
Thanks Tom and Erin, for making this a good sequel.
