Belle's first message to me said she identified with my bio on my website so much, and after seeing my work she had to work with me. We scheduled out several weeks from that first email and when the time came for her session, the excitement was palpable. She drove from Cleveland to the Akron area on a secret mission. Her husband didn't know and she didn't plan to tell him until their anniversary, where she would show him the photos.
She has waist length hair that she grows to donate to Wigs for Kids. She doesn't wear makeup, she doesn't curl her hair... so the glam that took place with Kaelyn of Myfairmakeup Artistry (one of the makeup artists I regularly I work with) was out of this world. She looked INCREDIBLE.
We talked about motherhood, about our bodies after pregnancy, and about her career as a flight attendant (she has been to Alaska, where I am from!)
She's currently working with a family in France to surrogate for them, so basically she's just an all around badass.
