Beauty and the Belly

Happy Mother’s Day!

I had a wonderful day today.  It started off with a homemade breakfast by my husband and a bunch of drawings wrapped in paper from my 4-year old daughter, Melia.

Then I was out the door 10 minutes later for a lovely photoshoot of Lisa who is 30-weeks pregnant with twin girls!

Not only is Lisa an incredible-looking pregnant woman, but also… she is ALL BELLY!  Thin arms and legs with a bump in the middle.  Hence, the title of this post:  Beauty and the Belly! 😉

Lisa got this beautiful henna tattoo on her belly.

Let’s see if I can remember the meaning of the symbols… I think the vines represent the connection between her and her babies, and the rabbit represents a fast and easy delivery!  We joked about how she will go back and get a family of rabbits tattooed on her belly!

This is one of my favorite shots.  Where’d her feet go?  (I’m sure Lisa is wondering the same thing!)


Lisa and her husband, George, have this undeniable connection.  You can see it in her face when he talks to her and when he kisses her.  Her face just illuminates.

This is a wonderful series of her laughing.  There were a lot of jokes flying from the peanut gallery (aka, George)!  😉


I thought of this pose as we entered the house.  I love playing with light and patterns.

The shape of the door frame, the reflection in the glass, and the sunny outdoors with the darkness of the indoors made this irresistible to me.

Happy Mother’s Day to Lisa and all of you Super Moms out there!
