When our framily asks me to take pictures, of course I am going to say yes – because they are my favorite people to shoot! Our friends Kyle & Dawn are expecting their fourth child ~ and as Dawn declares that this is their last, she also wanted to make sure she had some good shots of her and her beautiful belly before it was gone.
I won’t tell you she also insisted that her face was getting full – oops – but the fact is it isn’t, and she is in fabulous shape for a 7.5 month pregnant mama. She just ran a 1/2 marathon a month ago. Yea. That kinda shape. And per her request, there are not a few of my favorites here because she thinks her belly is pasty white. It’s November. :o)
So I am not a professional by any means, but my dad put my first SLR in my hands around age 8 and I was in love. Through HS, college and beyond I’ve loved looking at the world in my mind’s camera lens. I have a lot to learn, but find joy in practicing on those I love.
And maybe, just maybe, this beautiful friend will enjoy the pictures of her gorgeous self.
