This year’s spring and summer in Melbourne have been something out of this world so we were ecstatic when it was finally a real summer day just in time for the family photography session with Janine and her little gang. I just love it when families bring their big personalities and aren’t afraid to be themselves during the session. This family was surely not an exception. These kids totally stole my heart!
Oh how I love couples photography sessions… not only because I get to create a space for my clients to reconnect and have that captured, but also because proceeds from this particular session were donated to a child battling leukemia.
“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”
– Anne Christian Buchanan
Growing another human inside your body is magical, more difficult to some, but mostly magical. Just think about it for a second. During pregnancy, if the mother suffers organ damage, the baby in the womb sends stem cells to repair the damaged organ. And even after the baby is born, it is like your own heart outside your body.
I am fascinated by that innate connection, the womanhood and what it means for each woman to experience pregnancy. This wonderful video explains what my sessions are about – they are about you and getting in touch with yourself and your wonderful journey to become a parent.
