Entries in photography (14)
The Full Body Project: Photographs by Leonard Nimoy came out in December 2007 and takes gorgeous fat women and exposes them in all their beauty. Some of the poses come directly from fine art paintings, such as Matisse's "Dance" seen below.
(Thanks to my BarbFriend in New Orleans for sending the links to me!)
While Meghann's wedding was last year in October, I pulled up this picture that I loved, but that had really terrible quality. Knowing Photoshop much better now, I worked on the picture and this is what I came up with.
I really, really, really like this and will put it up somewhere so you can see it larger, too. I'm proud that I have learned Photoshop so well considering a year ago I didn't know how to straighten a horizon! (Remember?!)
Meghann, for those that don't know, was my UC baby.
As soon as I saw her dress, I knew I needed to photograph her nursing her 14-month old son. I set her on the chair, she began nursing and I "saw" the colors grow with adding the bouquet and ring bearer's pillow (don't all nursing women use pillows anyway?). I ended up taking about 50 photos from 3 different angles. In most of the photos, she is tenderly looking at her son. This is the only photo in which she is smiling and, in my opinion, is the absolutely most exquisite one of all.
I know most of you will adore this as I do - and yes, I will be submitting this for publication.
This mama, about 20 minutes or so before having her baby, brings her kitty close to her for a snuggle. It was so beautiful to see! And her cat settled under her patiently, not minding the stroking, leaning or hair in his face at all.
The laboring mom and Dr. Wonderful! He's actually hugging the mom - and hugged all of us several times. He isn't afraid of getting "too attached" to his patients, obviously. I honestly believe he is a midwife in obstetrician's clothing. I am so blessed to know this man!
Mom did have a successful VBAC - 10 hours after her AROM with about an hour of pushing. She was told she would never be able to push out any sized child, yet pushed out an Occiput Posterior baby without any bony damage to either herself or her baby. Imagine that! Don't you love when women prove OBs wrong?!
