While Carol and I had a full studio session ten days earlier, we still managed to fit in one final session before she delivered a healthy baby a week later.

The session was short, as I'd really headed over to Carol's house just
to keep her company for the afternoon, but when she said she'd be up for
a short photo session, who was I to say no? I quickly put up my white
sheets and had Carol sit on some cushions in the middle of them.
Fortunately the weather was cooperating, and the sun came through a
window onto the sheets, providing a brilliant highlight, and some
wonderful contrast to the scene.
It is a very different way of
photographing, when all you seek is a single, archetypal image.For the
past six months or so, Carol and I have been following a series of poses
through her pregnancy, working towards a final image compositing the
six months of photographs into a single frame (like this image of
Carol's first pregnancy). This session was totally different, with us
simply making new images for the celebration of light, beauty and the
fruition of Carol's second pregnancy.
After half an hour of
photographing, I strongly felt like I'd made a couple of very striking
images, and packed up the equipment, and headed off with Carol for a
walk (which was actually the original idea behind the visit).

This afternoon's photographs marked my final session of Carol's second pregnancy; as a couple of days later, she went into labor, and delivered her second healthy child!
