So, I have had this idea for a long time, and only recently been able to execute it.
Heather, who is due on July 31, was an excellent model and didn’t flinch when I brought her to the area of crazy construction just outside Boston where I had scouted my signs — she even suggested that she’d be happy to sit on the curb near the traffic for this shot. Noted: it is surprisingly awkward to pose a very pregnant woman with a large orange sign next to a busy highway.
And the photo below is dedicated to Rima. It is one of the bizarre disembodied baby heads, a bronze installation (Antonio López García’s El dia y la noche) outside Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts near where we live. This makes me laugh a lot – both at the fact that Heather was all for traveling to get this shot after I told her it was just for a joke, and at the fact that these disembodied baby heads exist.

On a serious note, my wedding clients all have the benefit of complimentary maternity and newborn sessions with me. I’ll be launching a more formal BUMP site eventually, but right now I’m just trying to get our Boston boudoir photography site off the ground.
