Brace Yourselves

I'm sure you've noticed, but I'm not big on sharing pictures of myself. But yesterday, I did a maternity shoot with my friend Ashley. She's amazing! And I'm so happy she would go to all the trouble to take photos of us. I'm feeling brave at the moment, so brace yourselves to see me at 35 weeks pregnant:



Our day was such a fun adventure. Our boys (she has two, I have one) are best buddies, so we took them along for the ride. It started out with a flat tire in Golden Gate Park, where numerous kind strangers offered to help. I hope good karma catches up with all those nice folks. Then, before our shoot even started, Ashley pulled her son's tooth. She's a woman of many talents. :) After things got back to normal, we spent the rest of the afternoon romping about the city taking pictures. My favorite moment was avoiding a crazy dog-walker lady as we tip-toed around the Sea Cliff neighborhood taking photos on people's driveways and doorsteps.

If you want to see the rest of our shoot, check out Ashely's blog. And if you're in the Bay Area, you should definitely hire this girl...she's fantastic!

Katie, I agree. The fog was one of my favorite things about living in the city; so I'm glad it happened to roll in while we were shooting. Plus, it's nice when the weather cooperates...it's horrible being both fat and sweaty! :)
