In today's day and age, people are starting to become more and more comfortable with their bodies. Here is one of my favorite side belly shots complete with hand bra and tattoo!

There is a certain beauty in the simplicity of black and white photography. One would think that you can capture more detail in color but there is something to be said about the detail of every shade of gray. Here is a proud mommy-to-be cuddling her beautiful belly.
Do you walk around with all kinds of props all day just waiting for an opportunity for a photograph to arise? Of course not! When it come to props, we like to take a minimalist approach.

Let's face it, most portrait shots are posed no matter what anyone says about how candid the photographer is. The trick is to add a touch of creativity when it comes to the angles and lighting of your poses.
