my official, professional belly shots

By the very talented and super nice Jen Rau. She has so many cool lenses. I was/am jealous.



(We got our rocker! yaaaay)



(Note, that is not retouched. I literally have no belly button. It just sort of flattened out and disappeared. I hope it comes back.)

I nearly didn't have any taken, but then Jen popped up at the last minute. We posted one of her weddings on 100LC, and I then found out that she lives in the LA area and that my sister-in-law has known her for years. Which meant we were like auto-friends once removed. And she happened to be down my way on Friday which just seemed too serendipitous to ignore.

We haven't even seen all of them yet, but there are a few more on Jen's blog that you can see if you'd like.

Anyone in the So. Cal area (or anywhere, for that matter) should definitely contact Jen about shooting your wedding. She's seriously so nice and has such an easy way about her... which is exactly the only thing you want when you're about to get married. PLUS she takes just luuuuurverly photos.

You look great! Best wishes with the new baby.

I'm curious about the pillow on the sofa in the foreground. Did you embroider it or did you buy it? And if it's the latter, can you tell me where? It's wonderful!

Stunning!

And kind of hilarious that your belly button is MIA. I always thought they got huge and popped out.

These are beautiful, my word! And the belly button thing is pretty neat. I've never seen that before, but it kind of makes sense. Anyhow, great photos; you're gorgeous.
