A portrait of my child and bump, once a week, every week, in 2014
I was inspired by Jodi, Belle, and James to start this project this year. Last year, I loved seeing this series on their blogs. I loved how a simple photo could catch a moment, I loved what these mamas saw behind the lens. As I bring 2014 in, I bring it in with a daughter who has grown leaps, three seems like it will be her best year yet, and I want to capture the stillness of those moments. I also walk into 2014 as a pregnant woman. My third pregnancy to be specific. I started thinking about the what ifs, what if I lose this baby, what if this baby survives and is in fact my rainbow baby, what will I regret? I would regret not enjoying it more. No matter what the outcome, life, happiness, family, pregnancy, and motherhood, is what we make of it. It’s up to me to make this pregnancy a beautiful and positive one. I would be heartbroken to look back and realize that I didn’t let Peter capture it in the way his and my heart desires. I hope you enjoy this new series.
River Mae: One night last week Peter brought home a bunch of lights, it was way past her bedtime, but her and Peter decided to have a little photo shoot in our living room anyway. Her love for cameras and photography already have us both amazed.
Bump: With every kick and tumble I am reassured you are doing well.
