I am just a handful of weeks away now from my first baby being born and last week my associate Sarah Bunyard headed out to play with me. I love being behind the camera but being in front of it is always a great experience as it helps me to understand my clients insecurities, quirks and sometimes strange conversations with their loved ones. Very few people are naturally comfortable with a lens pointed their direction but my husband, J.W., and I had a great time laughing, being silly and of course intimate and close to one another. We brought props like balloons, a few outfits and checked out a location I have been dying to shoot in….a laundry mat! It was awesome and I am excited to share some of my belly shots with my amazing clients. I will be on maternity leave from shooting from Nov 14 until the new year but of course will still be available for meetings, emails and phone calls. Little Alexander Wayne Autem is due the beggining of December and the bith is being captured by a good friend of mine so Sarah Rizy will make sure and post some newborn photos as soon as he arrives. Enjoy!
