Season’s Greetings from our newly expanded family!
If I’m looking a little less than tickled in this photo, it’s because I photographed myself for half an hour straight in a small, hot room in the upstairs of my house after I got home from work. I’m a little uncomfortable… which isn’t to say I’m not enjoying myself anyway.
This image was actually a pleasant surprise in post-processing: it wasn’t until I messed with this initially-underexposed image (with a bounce flash that was meant for fill) that I thought about tweaking it into a high-key, high-contrast portrait. That’s not my M.O. — but I’m pleased with how it turned out.
I’ve posted some more of my maternity self-portraits in a set on Flickr.
Me at 29 weeks, 2 days. Experimenting with poses and camera settings at six months, so I’ll be ready when I take the “real” maternity self-portraits at eight or nine months.
I’m already pretty big now, though. Damn.

One of my favorite photos to come out of last week’s vacation to Aruba.
