When Runa asked me a few days ago, "So, what time did you want to meet on Saturday?", I stood up from my chair and said, "Whaaaaat?   You're agreeing to meet with me?"  I was kinda stunned.  I had been nagging Runa to let me take maternity shots of her for awhile.  I guess persistence pays.  We met today at the Nature Park in Makiki. I had a great time, but I really need more practice with the posing.  Thanks Runa!  Sorry I made you sit and lean on oogie stuff.

Love your use of natural light. Maybe I can return my flash? How did you do the last shot with the faded green background? Gorgeous.

Thanks Lance! Nooo, don't return your flash. You do great flash work. I'd like to say the last shot was intentional, but it wasn't. The background turned out very overexposed, but I liked how Runa looked in the picture. To save the shot from getting trashed, I added two different textures to the background in Photoshop. I liked the end result.
