Portrait Challenge

Pin It As promised, I am joining yet another photo challenge this week. I know this Portrait challenge is not necessarily a "self-portrait" challenge but when I saw the maternity picture used as an example, I couldn't help but think of this picture. When I was expecting my dear sweet Kate, I loved looking at all the maternity shoots out there. I felt so huge and unattractive but the photo shoots of expecting moms made me think I might not LOOK as bad as I FELT. I had a great friend who was going to do a shoot for me but I never did get the courage to finally make a time for us to do it...instead, I put my two-year-old down for her afternoon nap and nervously set up the tripod in the playroom. I actually got some good shots, and this was my favorite:

The best part was that I didn't have to leave the comfort of my own home or be self conscious around someone else pointing a lens in my direction.
