Maternity Pictures of Someone Else


I had to put that in the title otherwise everyone would freak out.
This is probably the single most annoying thing about getting married. I say one little thing about feeling slightly nauseous, and everyone starts giving me a knowing look. No, it was just the gallon of ice cream I ate last night at one o'clock in the morning, but thanks for thinking I look like I'm pregnant.

In my quest to practice my photography skills, I have been hunting down anyone who might need pictures taken for any reason. I'm like a less-scary version of the paparazzi. 

This week I got the opportunity to take some maternity pictures for a friend of mine. I had no idea what I was doing and kept apologizing every five minutes. (I really need to work on that.) Nevertheless, my friends were fun and gracious, and the sun was blazing.
Ben and Stacy also have a 16-month-old who did not want to sit still. The following is the best shot I could get of him with his momma like this. I want to get some chalkboards, which will look a lot cuter than pieces of paper. I guess you gotta start somewhere, though.
It was fun taking maternity pictures, and you can be sure I'll be on the lookout for other friends of mine who need pictures taken! I really like photography, and I can only hope I'll keep improving.
