On Sunday several local moms met me in a park to allow me to photograph their bellies for various uses, including a Zazzle.com store which I hope to open by next week.
It’s always so great to meet people through SOAM. I probably have some form of social anxiety disorder, and if not, I certainly have a lot of social anxieties – I’m extremely shy and nervous meeting new people. But I felt very much at ease with the beautiful mamas who showed up. We sat around a bench under pine trees in the warm sun and just talked – about birth, about bodies, about blogging, about our children. Once everyone had arrived, we wandered over to a place where the trees provided a lovely backdrop and I took the pictures.
Thank you, every one of you, for showing up and for allowing me to use your images to help SOAM. It will, I hope, help the whole world.
