Abby and June

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:

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.”
