I'm feeling a bit shy today. Having spent most of my life behind the camera or with pen and interview notebook in hand, I'm used to publicly sharing photos and stories of other people. But it turns out it's a lot more difficult to publicly reveal things about yourself. I know, I know. It's something a blogger needs to get past. In an effort to put one foot forward, I'm sharing a few bare-belly self-portraits. I'll be adding them to my portrait portfolio, so I figure I might as well display them here first. (Left: 34 weeks. Right: 37 weeks.)
These days I'm qualifying everything with: "unless the baby arrives early." I plan to post once more before taking a—hopefully brief—hiatus...unless the baby arrives early…or she arrives late and I need a distraction. Check back later this week for a tour of the nursery awaiting her.
I'm Julia Soplop. I've spent my life documenting the world around me in writing and photography. I believe there is something profound in bearing witness to moments of joy and pain in others’ lives. My husband, three girls and I live outside of Chapel Hill, NC. You can read more about me here.
