Hello all...

I realize I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, I have been busy with the volunteer work I do, plus a good deal of shooting, editing and marketing. I feel like I have been in front of the computer for weeks! I did get out to do a little hiking and disc golf during the nice weather we have had recently, thankfully! I also had a great Valentine day with my sweetie and hope all of you had a wonderful time that day as well.

A while back I took pictures of a family that I have been shooting for several years. Mom was pregnant with their second child and I thought it would be fun to have their first daughter paint Mommy's belly with her finger paints. That shoot went great! We had so much fun painting Mommy, getting paint everywhere and even Daddy got in on the painting as well. During the editing I thought that some stages of the painting on Mommy's belly looked like a globe... and a light bulb went off... why don't have I have my artist friend Gabriel Shaffer come by the studio and paint a pregnant Mommy's belly like a globe. So, last week we did.

Thanks so much to Gabe (drop by his site and check him out) for donating his artistic talents and to Maria for being such a wonderful model. I love the way the image came out and I hope to do more paintings with some local face painters and pregnant Mommy's, so if you know a pregnant lady (preferably one who is late in her term) let me know.

Hope you like it!
