No, not Cathy's due date (sometime this summer, I believe). I mean the day of our 1950's maternity ensemble photo shoot!
This wasn't our easiest shoot, primarily because Cathy's ankles now have a tendency to swell and she constantly craves tuna fish with Nutella. But ever the trooper, Cathy came through, and how! Radiant, with a twinkle in her eye and skip in her step (at least at the beginning of our shoot), Cathy proved once again that she is the consummate professional.
The opera coat lined and hemmed, fashion accessories at the ready (including a beautiful vintage hat -- a gift from an MPB reader!), we set out on this resplendent April morning.
As always, I hope you enjoy our photo shoot. I know you'll be sensitive to Cathy -- who does seem more prickly these days -- and avoid the word "hilarious" when describing her delicate condition. She doesn't see the humor in it. Especially as she begins to resemble a late-August heirloom tomato.
As always, to see these photos full-size, please click on any image and
in Picasa, choose the album name, and then, in the upper left hand
corner, "Slideshow." Or something like that.
Honestly, readers, don't you think pregnancy brings out a special loveliness in our young(ish) model?
