I Heart Silhouettes

It's silhouette week at i Heart Faces. I dragged the family to the beach to practice, practice, practice Susan Keller's tips for my kids entry, only to learn it was a one entry contest again this week! So my shots of Beauty and the little Beast were pushed aside in favor of my adult entry, a photo I took many weeks ago of my good friend Colleen (seven months pregnant) and her 19-month old daughter.

Lolli said...

That's so funny that you worked so hard to get a 2nd shot, and ended up not needing it. It was good practice, right? I love the shot of your friend and her daughter. It's beautiful!

Oh, I love that. What a beautiful moment captured.

Heather said...

WOW! I LOVE this shot. Just beautiful. Are you doing portrait sessions now or what???

I know, I wish I had known which categories would be up for this theme. I spent a lot of time trying to get an Aidan shot, but luckily I didn't like any of them... it was easy for me to decide. But poor husband... always my I Heart Faces entry! (he actually said one time he didn't think I'd ever win because he's not 'cute enough.' Silly Chadly!!) : )

Melinda said...

Wow! What a beautiful moment you captured! I am so impressed!

Lovely pregnancy at 7 months, fun pose regardless of setting, but what a great silhouette! I am sorry Beauty and Beast didn't make the cut, but I think you made the right choice!

I don't think we can be friends...You are too talented.

Sara said...

This is one of the best "pregnant" shots I've seen. I love how you can tell she is pregnant, but it isn't one of those obvious, hands on the belly shots. Plus, the addition of the older sibling is just perfect along with the simpleness of the photograph being a silhouette.

Becca said...

Oh this is just beautiful! I love everything about it :-) I should have at least TRIED to get a picture this week - but alas, I was too lazy and unmotivated! haha :-)

Lori of I'm no super Mom said...
