I knew that Lexi was expecting her third child, but had absolutely no idea she was forty. When I found out – I knew she needed to be included in the 40@Forty Project.
We wanted to create something cool that wasn’t the traditional maternity portrait that you see every day. It occurred to me that my abstract profile concept – which I used for my self portrait a few weeks back – would be a perfect way to show off her pregnancy.
We went with soft colors – with a dominant pink- then added a soft, whimsical pattern to give it a little depth. I ended up cropping it much looser than my self portrait. I wanted it to still have an abstract feel, but still be very clearly a maternity portrait. I love the way it turned out!
