Maternity shot C&C please.

I do mostly weddings and environmental stuff. Studio work is few and far between. This was a DIY studio in my basement. This is my second time working with this client. Her previous pregnancy shoot was done in a more natural wooded/stream area with her husband. 2nd time around she wanted more of a studio look.

Technical info
D800, ISO 100
85 1.4G @ f/4
24x24 Softbox w SB-900 @ 1/32 or 1/64 aimed every so slightly to camera

5 in 1 diffuser with black side facing camera & black drape behind her, to camera right.
Fired with SU-800
Minimal PP, couple clicks to enhance blacks
Unfortunately, resized to 3mp for upload purposes

This is my first studio application with the D800. Even after a couple of months of using it, the resolution and DR blows me away. I was able to xoom in and see skin creases on her hand like it was a macro shot. Anyway, I'm not hung up on the mp, but it's fun to fool around and see what you get. Cheers!
