31 Weeks ▌A Silhouette Diary - Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona


Husbands are many things. I know for a fact however, that mine is so much more than average. He has more patience for my artistic endeavors than anyone I have ever known; he never refuses my request to "try to capture this idea". So there we were, on a little nature walk with our boys, having run into some serious mud down by the San Pedro River. Our choices were to either head back to the car prematurely, or attempt a number of belly silhouettes with the setting sun as our backdrop. Fortunately for me the man a.) listens to directions perfectly and b.) has his own creative vision and c.) is not intimidated by my camera. I just LOVE the shot with the dump truck, The Boy was marginally cooperative, only gracing my belly with his dump truck for about .002 seconds. I guess that soldier trigger finger comes in handy with photography too!





And this last one totally made us laugh out loud, I think my instructions for silhouettes have always been "do something dramatic to create shape!" and well, he certainly does...

he is, indeed, a special man. I love each of the photos, but the last one is very very charming.

You are just too creative, Karyn! These will be treasured memories when this little fellow is fifteen (or maybe twenty) years old. :) How fun that your husband is able to share this passion with you and create his own beautiful images of his beautiful wife. Don't slack off in these final weeks. I wanna see a headstand at 40 weeks! :)
