I’ve always thought that pregnancy or maternity photographs all looked the same: a little gauze wrapped around a figure, a serene pose, hands on the belly. As a result, I’ve never been that interested in photographing a pregnant woman, until Cierra contacted me. She described her fun-loving relationship with Maurice, and her interest in motorcycles and belly dancing. I couldn’t resist. We spent a couple hours working with them on some interesting images, and I’m pleased to say, we never once wrapped her in gauzy fabric.
