Nice lighting. I'd say the pose is a bit awkward, but that one word describes dealing with the situation. Love the contemplative look on her face.

Really nice lighting and skin tones. The pregnant body is so beautiful. I wish she weren't hiding her breasts but I understand why she is...I would too if my picture was on public display :) Love this picture!

Wonderful soft lighting. The whole photograph is sensual, but sensitively and respectfully done. Very good.
