A true Superwoman! { Maternity Pinup }

Elizabeth contacted me just before the holidays to inquire about doing a maternity pinup shoot. She was (still is at the time of this blog post) expecting her third child and wanted something unique for her maternity shots. Having contacted a few other photographers in the Twin Cities and getting really negative responses to her idea, Elizabeth was thrilled when I told her I simply adored the idea and was super excited to see what we could come up with. I was honest with her and said that while I was thrilled at the idea, I'd never done one before so it was new territory for me and thanked her for trusting me with this (really) one time opportunity!

Her kids (despite being less than amused at the shoot not being all about them) were adorable and it was chaotically fun!  The resulting image simply captured the essence of what a mother and woman is...a SUPER woman!

I posted this photograph to Facebook at 9:57 am today (January 7th, 2013).  I then proceeded to go to lunch with a friend (which resulted in an amazing and much needed 4 hour eat and chat).  I had my phone in my purse on silent and was and by 3:29 pm, I had over 100 new fans, 44 comments, 450 people liked it, 124 shares and over 2,000 people reached.

I am in awe, of both Elizabeth and the response.  Thank you.
