Belly Bliss

What can I say about this amazing woman that will do her justice? Cortney is my friend, my confidant, my silly side all wrapped up in one perfect bundle. The fact that she is a photographer only deepens my connection with her. But let me tell you-- taking photos of another photographer is not easy! I was flattered that she and her husband of Teeples Photography chose me to do their maternity photos, since they are so talented themselves.

I have to laugh as I think of the obstacles I went through for this next shot. Freezing creek water, pants rolled up and soaked, uneven rocks cutting my toes, and the fear of dropping insanely expensive cameras hanging loosely around my neck.
Was it worth it? I think so.
Cortney my friend, I love you and I hope these pictures show you how much:)

AMAZING! The first and last ones in the white dress are incredible. They need to be HUGE to do them justice! Great job, Carrie!

I love the last one Carrie! They all make her look beautiful but the family together is just so perfect.

Holey moley. This is the the maternity shoot of the century here... BEAUTIFUL, carrie. Truly awesome shots all around. I love especially the one of the family where sophea is standing. I would kill for a perfect picture of my family like that. kudos to the models too for looking perfect.

You are amazing, Car. The pics in the white are my fav - especially the last two. Why does every other woman look better pregant than me?

All I can say is WOW! These are amazing. That one of Cortney all in white at the bottom was definitely worth it. She looks like an angel! And look at sweet Sophia sleeping on her mom'a tummy in the last picture. So cute!

Oh, did I not comment on these yet?! Goodness. I really like the river one. But I LOVE the middle-of-the-road laughing one. I can just *hear* that laugh in my mind when I see it! Brilliant work, as usual. :)

Oh, yes, and I totally miss you, by the way!
