Another Way a Woman is Stronger Than You Know

It’s called Diastasis Recti, and I found out today it’s a separation of the abdominal muscles. It’s what happens when a woman’s abdominal muscles have to move so far apart to allow for pregnancy that her other internal organs are barely hanging on by a thread. Read more HERE.

― Rachel Carson

The gentle curve of the breast and hip combined with the fabric seemed to remind me very much of rolling sand dunes.

Scarred, Stretched, and Jiggling


The model’s own words, “You’d be hard pressed to find even an inch of my body that isn’t scarred, stretched, or jiggling. But I AM BEAUTIFUL and no one can convince me otherwise. My body is all mine and it’s been through the wringer and now it’s more a work of art than its ever been.”

Ashley and Wyatt

Happy to have Ashley and Wyatt in the studio today, and it was especially easy to see the bond the two of them have.

Also easy to see what a curious 11 month old Wyatt is, as there were frequently too many other things that needed to be explored and inspected here in the studio. Including the photographer, as before they left he got in my arms and gave me kisses.

Happy to have both of them here today, and give us all another fine demonstration that a bond between mother and child is a beautiful and artistic thing, and also that when posed alone, a mother can still be a Work of Art.
