Hi Sandra,

My name is Tara James, I’m 26 years old and I live in California by way of Austin, Texas. I’m currently working full time and studying to be an EMT with the hopes of moving to Atlanta in 2 years with my family. I am a faithful reader of your blog! I visit your site several times a day just to make sure I’m keeping up with what’s going on in the industry.

I always see the beautiful women in your morning glory posts and I was feeling froggy so I decided to jump :) Attached are my photos for your Morning Glory post…These aren’t like the typical pictures that you post as I am 8 months pregnant with my first (and last) child.

When I was younger, my mother owned an African clothing store and I thought it would be nice to dedicate this shoot to her. They’re also totally different from the mundane maternity photos that you would probably see floating around. To be featured in your Morning Glory section would be a huge honor! Thanks in advance for the consideration :)

Thank you so much for choosing me to be apart of your Morning Glory section! I really, really appreciate the love. Lol! I can’t stop smiling and posting the link anywhere I can. People will get tired of me by the end of the day…Thank you so much!

Oh and if your LA readers ask, the wonderful photographer was Samuel Dawes. His website is www.studioartistre.com and the talented makeup artist was Ms. Brandy Edwards. Her email address is BillieLuxBeauty@gmail.com.

Thank you again for everything…Now I can get back to reading your other posts :-)
