We have a pregnancy series set up for the 3rd Sunday of the next few months, following Amanda through her pregnancy. Amanda is a model, photographer, artist, etc.
I have some quick "test" images up of her at just past the 3 months mark. On the 20th, the next shoot, she will be just at 4 months.
The shoots repeat every month (Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan and Feb) on the 3rd Sunday. We *may* add other days, but after that we will try to add a shoot in march right before delivery, then one or two after delivery.
One shoot, probably in February, will have the dad.
The October shoot may be "Baby's First Halloween" and could be pretty silly/fun.
Pregnancy shoots are a popular, lucrative, and very "in the moment" thing to do. But how do you show people what you can do, if you can't get your first shoot?
Now is your chance!
Shoots are approximately 3 hours, and that gives a *LOT* of time to do different things at each stage.
We have many things planned, including the standard baby blocks, baby on board, and "cliche" images, as well as a lot of artsy, fresh, and fun images.
Each Month there is a holiday (though January it's well before the shoot), so we will start with the "cliche" images, then move to some theme images, and see where it goes.
Nov - Thanksgiving
Dec - Christmas
Jan - (a late) New Years
Feb - Valentine's day with the dad
Feb-march --- ??? Final belly shots.
Amanda is a very creative person, and is looking for as much for her baby scrapbook as possible.
We don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet, (but we can go both ways even after we know!)
If you've thought about shooting pregnancy photos, but don't know how to start, we've got you covered.
We will show you how to use natural and studio lighting to capture this very special time.
But most importantly, you'll get PHOTOS to use in your portfolio to attract other models, and potentially open up another source of income.
The shoots are coordinated through our meetup.com groups, and we are offering two non-member slots (you need to join meetup, but not pay a membership fee) through http://meetup.com/models
The other slots, and special events are offered through our other group which is a membership group ($75/year).
The fee is $85 per shoot ($75, members)
You can pick/choose the dates as available.
There are only 2 non-member slots.

Additional dates depend on her final month, and delivery status.
If you attend all 5, you will get a free pass to the post-partum shoot, with the baby, at about 3-4 weeks. This should be a fun "follow up" to all the previous shoots.
PM for more information,
But the best way is to join the Meetup.com/Models group.
For serious photographers, looking to grow their art, and use a studio, share the costs of models, and props, and shoot on a regular basis, check out the http://meetup.com/bodyart
group. It's a $75 year membership, but a lot of fun stuff goes on all the time.
