Abby and June were my first session of 2014, coming to the studio when June was only days old. Big sister Faith was along too and she’ll be featured in a lighting blog as my weekly contribution here: http://blogtogs.com.
Here though we celebrate a loving mother who has gone above and beyond in her support of other breastfeeding mothers in the area. Thus she becomes Woman as Art:
By the way – if you’re interested in celebrating your beauty and becoming Woman as Art – email me and find out how:
Abby wrote this after seeing the images of her session. I found it quite touching:
“Yesterday I took the plunge. I went to a photo shoot and took my shirt off. I’d like to say I did this for other women to show them that a mothers body is beautiful, but I didn’t. I did this for myself. I can preach about beauty all day long but if I don’t believe it myself, I am nothing. I had been avoiding this shoot for over a year now. Here it is, my sagging natural breasts that nourish my little one. My shoulders, those that bear stress and hunch over when I cradle my babies. In other photos, my belly; once taut and flat, now covered in stretch marks and flabby. I am a mother. I am woman. I am a wonderful and I am art.
Thank you, Cliff Ingram as so many before me have said before. You are the gateway I needed.”
