Looking for a little "belly boost" from my sistahs and bros...

Post by Miss Ronnie on Mon Apr 29, 2013 11:03 am

Hello my dear Forum Family,

It is I, Miss Ronnie, who is not afraid to beg and plead for some help. I have yet to paint a pregnant belly. Why, you ask? Because I don't know anyone pregnant!!!!! I have handed out my rack card with lots of cool faces on it to many a "pregger" and explained what I would like to do for them...but still no takers! I am at my wit's end! I have come up with a plan to draw in this type of business - but alas, I have no photos of my own to show anyone to give them an idea of what can be done on their bellies. Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

SOoooooooooooooooooooooooo...... I am wondering (hoping) and asking (groveling) if anyone would allow me to use a few photos of some belly art that can get me kick started... ???????

Post an ad on craiglist for a freebie, it worked for me! Do not invite them into your home though...I had a bad experience with that. I don't think you would want to use mine lol my work is not up to par with yours. Good luck Miss Ronnie!

I have thought of that.... I fear that I will get some cray-cray that answers. I mean, if I were pregnant, I would never call somebody who posted an ad for this...

LMAO! The lady was nice and loved the painting, but I think she had sticky fingers... Rolling Eyes That's why I gave warning against inviting them in. I did get a lot of responses for it although I only did 1.

I put a request up on facebook and received several inquiries including a couple of requests from photogs who wanted to expand their portfolio and shoot professional pics while I painted....sure, twist my arm!

Do you have any friends or clients who are about to become grandparents? Tell them it would make a great gift for the mom-to-be. Contacting a photographer seems like a great way to extend your feelers a bit.

I posted a little pleading blurb on my facebook page... turns out, one of my friends says that about 1/2 of her friends are pregnant and one already said "yes!" I may have to paint her several times to get a good variety for my website and promos....

Erica, that really stinks about Ms. Sticky Fingers. So, are you saying I can temporarily use this belly painting? I would love to just use it as an example until I actually paint one of my own.

Hello Miss Ronnie, you can use mine if you would like, I don't mind at all! Very Happy It isnt the greatest but then again it was my first and so far has been my last. The pregnancy boom has slowed down at my church to really get any practice in. Have fun!! I love you

I have done 2 in baby showers that look ok, the others are quick ones, if they qualify for your portfolio you are free to use them.[img][/img]

These bellies are all adorable you guys!!!! Thank you so much!!!! My cousin's daughter was pregnant and by the time her belly got big enough to work with, she had to be put in the hospital for the remainder of her pregnancy....
I can't wait to do my first belly!!!!

You can use mine if needed.
Also, I did the craigslist thing and it worked well.
I went to THEIR house for the painting.
Also, I have a picture that I made in a standalone Ikea frame that shows one of my belly paints. Instead of explaining away to the next preggers you show them the pic and say "I can only paint 2 more free bellies for my portfolio and I am booking up fast". Putting pressure next to the word free makes it seem like a something they would be missing out on (which they would be lol)

Thanks, Melinda. That's good advice about the booking up fast thing... *scratching head* How come I don't think of such cool and clever things to say?!

Ronnie, Here are a couple of my "express bellies", inspired my Whitney Myers' class on FABAtv. Both were done in under 15 minutes.You may use these images until you get some of your own under your belt, as long as I am credited.
