I came across this blog post the other day during my internet wanderings. I was SO inspired. I am a little bit nervous about shooting my last wedding at 38 weeks of pregnancy. In fact, I have weddings booked at 35 weeks, 37 weeks, and 38 weeks. And then 4 weeks post-partum. (I'm not insane, friends. They were all booked before I knew of the pregnancy.) I was feeling hopeless about the pre-baby weddings, thinking there was no way I was going to have the strength to do them. Until I saw the amazing Chenin Boutwell in her 37 weeks of pregnancy glory. SHE did it!
So I decided... I am going to do whatever I can to assure my presence at these weddings. I will build my strength every day... walking, mentally preparing, and pumping myself with good nutrition so that I can handle the work of these weddings. I know I can do it. It has been done before, and if my body is capable, then it will happen.
Thanks to Chenin for totally inspiring me... I have heard a few times that I am crazy to think I can do it, but I know there are lots of mama's out there who have done the same thing!
