Well, it’s been quite a week!  I came down with a horrible sore throat on the Fourth and it quickly escalated into what I will now refer to as “exploding face syndrome.”  You know that feeling where your sinuses are so congested that your eyes, cheeks and even teeth hurt?  Yeah, that was me all week.  After four straight days in bed (illness during pregnancy is always extra-fun), I think I am finally on the mend.  I hope to have a bunch of sneak peeks up in the next few days.  In the meantime, if you need a photo-fix, you can check out these links:

As I mentioned before, the Baby as Art workshop was just amazing.  It was beyond inspiring to be surrounded by so many talented women in the Baby as Art team and the other workshop attendees.  You can see our “class photo” here.

Also, while I was in Utah for the day on the way home from San Diego I had the supreme pleasure of meeting up with my good friend Tiffany from Follow Your Art Photography for some maternity photos.  Tiffany is just one of my favorite people and she has an eye for light, color and the perfect location that is rarely matched.  If you are anywhere in Utah and in need of some amazing portraiture, definitely look her up–you will not be disappointed!  Keep in mind that our shoot was sandwiched in between two plane rides and four sessions of my own, and she still managed to make me look and feel beautiful.  That’s some real talent:).  You can check my photos out on her blog here and here.  Thanks a million times over, Tiff!

Okay, it’s me!  Much thanks to my darling husband for humoring me this afternoon and capturing all 26.5 weeks of my own growing belly.  As I get geared up for this final trimester of pregnancy and the upcoming arrival of our very first baby boy (after three girls, I still don’t really believe it!) in mid-September, I wanted to make an announcement about how this will affect Jessica Washburn Photography.  I will be taking regular sessions through the end of July (just a few more spots open so if you are looking to book, call now!).  Beginning in August, I will not be taking family or child sessions until the beginning of next year.

This was a very difficult decision to make, but I truly believe that there really aren’t any small moments during those first few months of a new baby’s life–each one is precious and all too fleeting.  It’s important to me that I take time off to recover and to just drink in the sweetness of getting to know the  newest member of our family.  Conversely, it is essential to my work that throughout your session experience with Jessica Washburn Photography, I really be present for and enjoy the moments I get to spend with your family.   I look forward to spending that time with you in 2010.  In the meantime, if you have any questions or need a referral, don’t hesitate to ask:).

If, however, you are looking to book a maternity or newborn session, before the end of the year, I don’t expect you to take my family planning into account when you plan yours:).  And, in fact, if you are looking to book this year, it’s already a little late for that anyway.  Give me a call or shoot me an email and we’ll discuss how to fit you in.  You know I can’t resist a gorgeous belly or a sweet bundle of newborn perfection!

There’s a shiny new button up in the header.  I finally got my galleries all resized and prepped for this blog, so if you’d like to see more of my work click on the “Portfolio” tab.
