52 fridays and BAM ~ week 29

This week is LauraJ's birthday, one of the participants of the 52 Fridays. She asked us to make a sign and take pictures of places that we might take her to for her birthday. We decided to take her to FabricLand and to the Peace Fountain in Windsor.

I am also participating in the BAM self portrait challenge, and for this one I decided to really push myself this week. I was inspired to do a belly love portrait. I saw this one from another BAM participant and thought it was very courageous to do. So I pushed myself and took a photo of my naked belly. no touch ups, no playing around with picnik. Just my belly. I looked at the photo and realized that instead of being picky about how it looks, I was only grateful for it, because it gave me three beautiful and healthy children.
A little belly love (second photo down).
The one below was after a sleepless night. I just wasn't in the mood to smile, just wanted to lie on my bed some more.


  1. Good for you. I am not sure I would have the courage to show my belly. It sure isn't what it used to be after the birth of my 3 kids! I applaud you!

  2. You are amazingly courageous :) Even my pregnancy belly pics have to be just-so before I will keep them, let alone post them. And if my belly looked like that after three children, I would be thrilled (it will not look like that, lol).
    I love the portrait, too. It really portrays how you're feeling. The honesty is awesome.

  3. How cute is your belly button? :) I love the pictures!
