Went home to Louisiana last week. Got this photo of Susan, pregnant with her last child. She'd said, "Take this now. I'm not doing this again." I did. She is a magnificent, classic beauty, and also a sculptor.

For those interested, this is Tri-X film in a Hasselblad, scanned.

    This is exceptional work. This is how your site images should look. The lighting is exquisite. This is one of the finest tummy to mummy shots going. Without the write-up I would swear this was shot late 70s to early 80s. Brilliant

    W o w!!! I also use a 500CM (Classic). Hasselblad is the standard as far as I am concerned. My favorite lens is the chrome 150mm "C" Sonnar f/4. I use the EV settings with my Gossen Luna Pro. You, Laura, are an exceptional photographer.

    One of the nicest pregnancy shots I've seen. The "antique" style goes very well with the lace dress. Wonderful peaceful expectant mood.
