a baby bump on the blog

I was recently contact by a friend, Cheryl.  Her request was simple, "Would you be willing to take baby bump (pregnancy) pictures?"  I didn't hesitate to say "YES!"  I love having opportunities to practice my photography skills on subjects other than my dogs.  The second after I said "yes" I started to doubt if I actually could pull it off.  You see, one thing that hinders my progress in creating better photographs is myself and my wonder if others will like my work.  I put those feelings aside and quickly scoured my sources for poses and ideas for baby bump pictures.

Now let me tell you something about Cheryl.  When Cheryl and I first met we were complete strangers looking for a mutual apartment to live in.  You see we were both going to attend graduate school to become Speech Pathologist.  We are both that now.  Our city of residence as roommates was Duluth, MN.  Life has a funny way of coming back to the same things.  After we graduated, we both moved in our separate ways.  While we kept in touch, I don't think either of us would have expected or anticipated that we would both be living back in Duluth, MN 12 years later.  I am so thankful to have Cheryl as a friend and that she felt comfortable asking me to shoot a few photos for her.

I can't wait to meet this little bundle of joy!


a true glow

While I am not a master yet when it comes to photography, I absolutely enjoyed shooting a few shots for Cheryl.  I am so blessed to have you as a friend!
