Okay, I admit it. My son popped on a dress, to be silly, and joined the photo session. The son of a photographer hides when the camera is pointed at him and only wants to be photographed if someone else is getting all the attention…and his good-natured, astoundingly beautiful friend, was happy to share the fame.
I spotted this beautiful woman with the picture-perfect belly in the Bob Bullock museum gift shop (Saturday). I wanted to photograph her so I approached her. She explained that she was due in a week and lived an hour away, and that this was her last trip away from home. I gave her my card just in case, and the next day she called, excited for the very last-minute opportunity to capture her pregnancy (Sunday). The next morning she arrived for her photo session (Monday). My stylist and I had such fun wrapping her in elegant fabrics and rolling her around under the lights. She was relaxed, calm as can be, and we all laughed about the possibility of having a maternity and labor/newborn session all in the same day. A day and a half later she gave birth! And in she came, the very next week for a newborn session!
This dancer came in first with her daughter for family photos and then called me back needing headshots for an upcoming audition…for Janet Jackson! She’s as talented as beautiful and offers dance classes for any of you moms who want to get in touch with your sexier side….
