I'M A MAMA FAN... A BIG ONE!
Meeting the number of mothers that I do, you would have to assume that I like them. Well, yup.. I sure do! In fact, mothers never cease to amaze and inspire me. As a mother myself I have a fair idea of the ins and outs of the brilliantly chaotic, heart bursting, loved up motherhood journey. Well, my version of motherhood anyway. And this is what I’m getting at - every single Mama I work with does it her own way, with her own flair. To me, that is magic. your unique mothering flavour.. so well considered and part of your core. When we begin our photography journey at your maternity session (it may be one of our crazy beautiful GODDESS SESSIONS in studio or location sessions around the Illawarra/ Wollongong area ); as we are celebrating that complete whizz bang miracle in our session who is tap dancing on your bladder.. I see you unknowingly wrap your arms around your belly, soothe your baby as you rub your tummy in circular motions, you wriggle slightly within your ribs as your little one takes another tour of their quickly shrinking digs, and you look down, you have “that” knowing smile - the Mama smile.. it starts from your belly and curls its way all the way to your eyes. Innate. Warm. Beautiful. Two hearts in one bod.. it’s just amazing (and when you go and start cooking twins.. or triplets! Well dang, drop mic, you rock. my. world. woman!)!
HERE'S ONE YOU PREPARED EARLIER.
Sometimes we don’t meet until your moment of perfection has already arrived - your darling, teeny tiny newborn baby.. and somehow that teeny tiny newborn has just super sized your heart. Boom - there it is. That love everyone told you about.. now you get it.. now you can simply look down at that little neck nuzzler for 8 hours straight.. and feel you have done all you need to with your day. And you are bang on correct in feeling that way. Your devotion, your journey into parenthood. Seeing your other half not just as your favourite grown-up human (unless they had forgotten to pick up the Camembert/ prosciutto/ sashimi you can finally enjoy again) BUT as someone else’s Parent. Now that is life changing - insert hormonal tears here!
MY FIRST BORN
My heart pretty much outshone Sydney’s NYE fireworks display when I met my daughter, Charlotte. Falling in love with her, as she held her Dad's finger, seconds after she was born..
I swore I would give my last breath, so she could take her next.
She lit my Mama fire.
Charlotte is gloriously fierce - she is brilliant, intelligent, stubborn and fast witted. In other words, she is 4. She is the girl of my dreams. Anywho - this beautiful little girl (who we affectionately call Smoosh) made me a Mother (who lately, has started calling me Pops.. whaaat?!)- she began my path into this crazy world of raising humans. I rubbed her in my tum before anyone else knew she was here - I watched her move the bath water with her kicks whilst still inside my belly and she was the first person on this earth to call me MUM.
I still can't believe we made her!!!
PUT YOURSELF IN THE PICTURE
The connection between mothers and their children fascinate me - I want to celebrate it, capture it, create those moments with you where you forget I'm there and you nuzzle into your family bubble. Few things are as unique and precious really. I love celebrating the Dad bond too... don’t get me wrong.. seeing my kids assume my husband’s body like the armchair of their dreams, well that is sensational too (my heart swells, I catch myself dreaming of making more bebes.. then sober up out of my baby dust dreams when I remember how much sleep I don’t have any more with my two bed thieves as it is!). The bond between a mother and her children - I adore (can you tell?). I also wish I could capture more moments of being with my own children (ho hum.. selfies don’t cut it!). There is no news in saying that Mama Bears will happy snap their families often.. but who happy snaps the family pics WITH their Mama's?
I CAN HELP WITH THAT!
What I CAN do is help spread the love in the Mama celebration month of May. Mother’s Day is moments away (Sunday 13th May.. but you knew that didn’t you!) and I wanted to give you guys the chance to grab a special Mama session to give to your special Mama in your life (or if your hubby’s hidden talent is leaving your Mother’s Day gift to the last minute.. get him to drop me a line/ drop him not so subtle hints/ print out this post and stick it to his windscreen!)
