Motherhood has almost a fantasy about it. The consequence of this is a reduction in giving ourselves what we need, and creating a allowance of asking for help. Being able to be forth coming and standing firm with caring for ourselves, we create a proper vision of love. Fathers can step in and create a space for giving. Our power can be condensed and provide a following of loving embrace.
I hope the little I can offer by photographing, is a kindness with our bodies, and ourselves. This time brings a lot of emotions. May women be there for each other. May I be a agent of change. May I allow space for intimacy, connection to this change, and the beginning of birthing strong.
May excitement proceed your birth, and the story follow it. The visuals that come from this process can slow down the experience for a proper reflection. The relationship between your partner, and your support system, clearly defined. A wedding is celebrated, why can't your birth?
"Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life." -Ina May Gaskin
The complete and utter joy of newborns. My wish is that a photograph comes from this experience that will have your heart sing with the realization that this little being has a soul all her own. This will live on until she is living with much more independence. This time is about life connected, because even with the independence, they still are our little babies.
