Something Special

I had the privilege of booking of a photo session with Wendy of Blue Lily Photography on August 21 in Sausalito. I had seen her photos on the Nie Nie Dialogues blog and just loved them. I take most of the photos in our family so I am never in them. Plus, I hate having my picture taken. It is embarrassing to admit this but I do struggle with body image issues. I just don't like seeing myself in photos. Or even a mirror. But I decided that I didn't want Noodlebug to grow up without any photos of him and Mommy. I just had to suck it up. And I am happy with the results. If Blue Lily comes anywhere near you, I highly recommend their work.

So, if you would like to view our photos, I invite you to see me and Noodlebug in the flesh:


Go to "Clients" and enter my name as the password: amy malaise

Be sure to put a space between my first and last name.

I'd love to hear your favorite.

P.S. The bunny in the photo was bought for me by my father when I was a baby. The Radio Flyer wagon was my mom's when she was a little girl.

those are BEAUTIFUL pictures. I think my favorites are you and your little one with your heads side by side. so cute. really, those are great and you are gorgeous!

(i know what you mean about hating to have pictures taken of you. during my wedding i had to literally put it out of my mind that there was a photographer following me around all day. i would rather open a vein than have my picture taken most days!)

I hear you, Marie! I fully understand that this is my own neurotic silliness but it is hard to shake!!!


(PS I like those headshot photos of the two of us as well!)

Amy, I love them all! It's wonderful that you were able to use family treasures in the pictures, too. I agree that the headshots are especially good.
