Monique, who moved away from Nova Scotia years ago, got in touch to
let me know she was pregnant, planning to be in Nova Scotia, and
wondering if I'd have time to do a pregnancy session, I immediately
replied "YES", and proceeded to clear my schedule as much as possible,
to facilitate her narrow window of opportunity.

With only an hour or so to work with, Monique and I worked quickly
between a number of different settings and poses; one advantage was her
previous experience working with me (we'd first worked together nine
years earlier), which made the transition from walking into the space,
and making our first images almost non-existent. That, coupled with the
fact that I knew the location well and already had some compositions and
poses in mind, made the session both fluid and productive.

chose the location for the session for two reasons; first it is one of
the closest spaces I know if, so little time was spent on transportation, and second, it contains some great settings for
infrared photography. Surrounded by woods, there is plenty of light
foliage to work with if desired, while if the composition focuses on the
river, the dark rocks and water give some great contrast to the
luminosity of bare skin.
