One Photo, Two Ways {Greenwood, SC Maternity Photographer}

i had the pleasure of photographing the most beautiful couple today!  i’ve been waiting a long time for the session with this mama-to-be and let me tell you that it was worth the wait!  as i was briefly looking through what i got, this image immediately jumped out at me.  i just love it.  it’s one of those images that cries to be shown as a sneak peek 🙂  as i started editing i realized that there were two distinct ways i could go with this photo…and i couldn’t decide which i liked better so i’m posting them both!  one image is my usual processing style…clean and simple with a bit of color and contrast pop.  the other way is not my usual style but this image works so well like this that i couldn’t help but show it too.  it’s a hazier, more muted processing…what some call light and airy.  leave a comment below and let me know which edit you like best!

    Both are super good, but I care for the “Light and airy” look a bit more. It just goes with their easy, laid back look. Of course…my opinion only! 🙂

    I can see why you love it. The intrigue of “what are they looking at” has drawn me right in. As for your question, I prefer the first edit.
