    Using the ultrasound pic is really creative. Well done. :)

    Been there done that. They're technically flawless, I'm just wondering when we're gonna figure out something original for those sessions. NOT a critic, you're pictures are great, I was just thinking I probably would have done the same if in your shoes, and that's the only issue. Well done.

    Very nice, not only the merit of the lens but the knowledge and skill of the photographer.

    Thanks everyone. @nianys, the ultrasound pics on the belly is always a must. Always becomes a favorite of the parents-to-be so I have to do it. here are other belly shots that I did

    I was in no way criticizing, your pictures are great. As I said before I was rather putting myself in question if I had to do another maternity shot today. How would I go about it ? I'm sure your clients are thrilled and will cherish the pics for a lifetime. I'm just saying that personally, I've grown tired of seeing the same scheme applied all over again *because that's what the clients want*. I know if I were pregnant again I'd want something totally different for myself. I have a close friend in Texas who is a *fantastic* family photographer, but I get frustrating seeing her stuff year after year that is all the SAME great stuff, because I assume that's what the people ask for. She does those super thin DOF naked-infant-in-knit-cap-on-a-blanket and while technically perfect, I just have to smile at them because one day this whole generation will have the exact same pictures of themselves as newborns, exactly like my parents had identical naked-on-a-sheep-skin-infant shot ;)

    Love the pics, and I think they're well done and creative. I would have been delighted to have pics like this. Alas, it never occurred to us to do maternity pics, so we have none :(

    I think your friends will love them for a life time. I also really like the choice of background and lighting.

    No offense taken. I love criticism and I you have any please do so. It only makes me learn new things and be better. That's how I learn. I understand where you are coming from and as much a possible I try to be creative and do it differently.
