Jill :: Belly session

Wow, it’s nearly the end of March and I haven’t posted since January. Sorry…I’m a bad, bad, BAD photographer!!! There’s not much else to say on that subject. Sooooo, in other news, I just returned from a 2.5 mile run. I’ve started to run again and it is the most amazing head-clearing activity that any one person can do. Now I should really say that I jog, a very slooooow 10-minute-mile but hey, I’m totally jogging! I’m also doing hot yoga, and it hurts. Every. Single. Time. It hurts. And yet, week after week I seem to be torturing myself. Whatever…spring is here and this girl will have to slip back into a bathing soon waaaay sooner than I want to (especially if these last couple of weeks are any indication of the summer we might be getting) so I’ll continue running and torturing myself with hot yoga. Plus, I can think better when I’m not thinking about all the stuff I really should be thinking about. Get it? Right.

So, in other way more interesting news. Jill is going to be having a baby girl in just a couple of weeks! Yay! We met up on the first day of Spring last week—it was 80 degrees…on the first day of Spring…in March. And we got a few really awesome pics that I am so excited to share with you! But before I do that I have to say a special congratulations to Jilly-bean. Jill and I have known each other since grade school and became good friends in junior high school (you know, they call that middle school now) and we lived right down the street from each other growing up. We lost touch by the end of high school and ended up going in different directions, but it is so awesome to me that because of this little photo business I have (and the help of Facebook) she found me again and asked me to photograph her belly portraits. Jill, I was honored to be the one to photograph you, to share in this awesome moment just before your baby girl is born, and to celebrate with you and catch up on years of being apart. I wish you the very best of luck and cannot wait to meet little miss Eliza when she comes!

We shot down at the pond across from my folks house. Jill and I spent many an afternoon in high school walking these woods so I thought it was fitting.

The light was absolutely amazing on this day!

Hello hot stuff. Wait, is it appropriate to call a pregnant woman hot stuff?!?! I think so :)

Honestly Jill, you were glowing the entire time.

A little light model-wind never hurt anyone ;)

See glowing…it was literally like the light wanted to find Jill in every shot. Kinda love that!

Gorgeous.

Do you think she might be happy. I don’t know, there’s absolutely no proof :)

Another of my favorites Jill.

I love this one too though. I’m so glad we chased the light in this field and found the beautiful tall grasses that contrast with the pop of color from your shirt. Beautiful!

Jill, I hope you love these…you are absolutely glowing girl and I honestly could not be happier for you! Thank you for inviting me to photograph you and for being such a good sport about climbing hills with me and hiking by the pond. :)
