Me & Maternity

Early last summer on a sticky afternoon I met two talented photo-friends at a park near the Susquehanna River.

For playtime.

They wanted to practice using remote flashes, cool-kid techy stuff.

But what was supposed to be practice (just for fun) turned into something so much more.

Danelle & Karey gifted these beautiful photos to me.

I felt huge & awkward & needed help getting up from the grass & I felt a lil upside-down

with the camera(s) trained on me….

but I don’t see that in these images.


What’s it like to be on the other side of the lens?
