Look who is on the cover of a magazine…
This is one of the coolest things I have had the honor of being a part of. It began about a month and a half after my fourth son was born. My very talented friend Jennifer (formally known as Jennifer Terry) from Jennifer Bulich Photography asked if I would model for her for a mommy and me session for her portfolio. It was an unseasonable warm January evening as we drove out towards one of the simpltic yet picturesque beaches along the Colonial Parkway. The sun was setting and the wilds were howling, making for a scene…. Jennifer snapped some of the most memorable and breathtaking shots that day. Amazing keepsakes of what will most likely be my last child and me. Within a day Jennifer shared with me the touching images she captured.
She also happened to post them to Pinterest. That’s when things took off. Although a gallery of classic were captured from that memorable session, one of her portraits seems to go “viral”. My sister came to me months later, shocked that her Pinterest news feed displayed that a random pinner she follows had pinned Jennifer’s picture. It was there on the social media giant where the owner of the UK magazine, The Mother Magazine found the image. They contacted Jennifer requesting her permission to feature it on the cover. Jennifer kindly gave me the curiosity of asking me if I mind… and of course I said yes!!! As soon as the issue was released I bought a bunch. Giving away copies to family and keeping some for keepsake. It still makes me excited to think I was on the cover of a magazine. What is really cool is that The Mother Magazine, a natural holistic parenting publication, is read in over 30 countries worldwide.
The same picture was also selected by the photography blog Little Bellows as one of their top 10 submission for a wind inspired contest.
I am so proud of Jennifer for her accomplishments. She is truly talented. If you live or are visiting the Hampton Roads VA area, PLEASE consider her for your next photographer.
