Before looking through these pictures, please be advised that I do not provide cute bunnies & ponies for photo sessions with children. If you happen to be the proud owner of a bunny or pony, I’ll be happy to photograph them with your children, but providing adorable animals is not exactly included in my packages…at least not right now. :-)
Emma was precious with her furry friends—Hannah Montana (bunny), Shade (pony), & Birthday Cat (cat…that she got for her birthday…go figure). Birthday Cat didn’t cooperate as well for pictures, so unfortunately you won’t be able to meet him in this blog post. Sorry about that. But Hannah Montana & Shade were troopers. As was Emma…
Okay, so maybe it’s not all that new…I think it’s actually been up for a couple of weeks now. You may have already discovered it. Just consider this the official “press release.” :-) I’ve been thinking for a while that I wanted to have a simpler, sleeker site to display my portfolio and basic information. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE having the blog, and I will definitely keep blogging, but I thought it needed a partner. A partner with a different purpose. The purpose of the main website now (dianabondurant.com) is to provide a simple, easy to navigate environment to view my portfolio, pricing, etc. The purpose of the blog (blog.dianabondurant.com) is the provide you with my favorites from my most recent sessions, keep you updated on my life, etc. I like ending sentences with etc. So there you have it. Don’t forget…
Now go check out the fun new site!
I have a very, very dear friend who went through a horrible tragedy about a year ago. She and her husband were expecting their first child about this time last year. She had a healthy, complication-free pregnancy. Nothing to worry about. Then at about 40 weeks, their daughter stepped out of her mother’s womb and into the arms of her Heavenly Father. Tragedy without clear explanation.
Several months later, my friend received the wonderful news that they were expecting a child once again. The last 8 months have been an emotional whirlwind for them, both anticipating their second daughter and remembering the first daughter that was taken from them too soon. They wanted to have maternity pictures taken that celebrated the lives of both of their daughters. You’ll notice a butterfly and a rosary in a few of the pictures–these are memorials to their first daughter. You’ll also notice two people who in spite of tragedy are still very much in love and excited about the future and the family they will raise together. To my friend: You are beautiful. Your quiet strength never ceases to amaze me.
