I don’t think Christine knew quite what she was signing up for.

A few months back I had posted about doing some personal creative projects involving pregnant women.

My hope was to stretch my creativity and work on a few things that I don’t normally get to during a regular paid portrait session.

The response was really overwhelming, and thanks to a glitch in technology I put the majority of the responses into some secret cyber box that I have never again located.

Christine got in touch with me months later just as I was starting to really lay out a plan for this session in my head….and I think possibly regretted that decision the second ‘BIKINI’ came out of my mouth.

Christine is a smart and successful businesswoman, the face behind One Small Room, but the papers on her walls would tell you she’s a biologist….and most certainly not the kind of lady who jumps at the chance to sport a teeny tiny bikini a few weeks before giving birth.

Honestly I loved having the opportunity to listen to her insecurities, the ones all of us women have, and show her she could trust me to make them all disappear.

Thank you for your bravery Christine!  And for giving me the opportunity to do something out of the norm!  create-squamish-maternity-photographer
