This cute couple has been the subject of our last few blogs. They have been clients for a while and did their creative maternity session first and then their newborn photos with Gemini Visuals. This elegant maternity session was actually a creative session shot in conjunction with Seattle photographer with Eden Bao. It was actually a model call for the session and this couple just happened to already be Gemini Visuals clients!
This stunning dress is by Mii Estilo and is part of Eden Bao’s maternity wardrobe that she has for clients. We shot these at Siwash Rock in Stanley Park in Vancouver, and this couple were great sports about being on display along the seawall.
The idea behind this shoot was for us to recreate the look of sunset without any direct sun in the photos. It is also interesting to see the results from 2 photographers shooting together, and how their preferences vary and the final photos will be different too.
Eden Bao shoots with a Nikon, and Adrienne shoots with a Canon camera and in having two different camera bodies and lens, there were some noticeable differences in the final product. It was also interesting to see how the settings vary quite drastically. Practicing with another photographer is an excellent way to help hone your skills and learn more about your craft, as you can always learn from another photographer’s technique and knowledge. Eden is relatively close in the Seattle area, and we often work together on creative projects.
Watch for an upcoming blog on a 3 day workshop we hosted at our South Surrey Studio with Eden Bao. To learn more about her upcoming workshops, visit her website here.
Thanks so much to our gorgeous couple for modelling for this session. You can see more of their adorable new baby here.
