I recently photographed maternity pictures for Lindsey who wanted to have a Bohemian inspired maternity photo shoot. It was a pretty easy process for me as Lindsey already had her maternity picture ideas already laid out and all I had to do was execute what she was looking for. Of course sometimes the execution is the hardest thing to achieve given the ever changing conditions outdoor photographers have to face, but I was pretty lucky this time around.
Hi, I’m JC Ruiz and I’m a color blind photographer. Your turn, “Hi JC.” Funny thing about being a color blind photographer is the misconception that I must take amazing black and white photographs or I must have a hard time with my post processing. Well 1 out of 2 isn’t bad, I do take some amazing black and white photographs hahahahahahaha I kid I kid. No but seriously I do hahahahaha I’m pretty sure if I never mentioned I was color blind people would never know the difference.
You truly have to love repeat customers. Perhaps you remember the Benedicts from their engagement photos or from their wedding photos. Like the continuing circle of life I have photographed their maternity photos. There was a rumor circulating that usually a week after I photograph an expecting couple they have their baby. Unfortunately Alex and Hayley have dispelled that rumor.
It would only be right that I photograph Dean and Jenean’s maternity shoot after doing their engagement and wedding photos. It is part of the natural progression of things and who am I to stop the natural progression? They couldn’t have picked a better day to shoot as well. Sunny skies and cool breezes were on tap for us that day. A recipe for a great time and even better photos.
Taking photos is difficult enough but trying to take maternity photos in the middle of summer in Miami is just brutal; however, Kia and Hayward were up for the task. The humidity was no joke that day. Thank God I suggested we shoot around 6:30 in the evening. I don’t even want to begin to think what a midday shoot in that sun would be like.
I had the honor of photographing some maternity photos for my friends, Hugo and Dee, who are expecting their first child any day now. Dee texted me one day and we went back and forth for a bit and I agreed to help them out. I haven’t seen them since I’ve been back in FL, but then again I’ve only been back a week so I really haven’t seen too many of the old faces yet. I’ve known Hugo for about 10 years now and Dee just a little less. They’re a great couple and you couldn’t ask for two better people to be friends with.
