Intimate motherhood portraits in London and the surrounding areas
Nothing could of prepared your heart to open like this.
So many moments of mothering go unwitnessed. Let me capture your unwitnessed moments of motherhood.
Love made visible.
Nurturing…You are mine and i am yours..
Capturing and celebrating the intimate relationship between mother and child. Our children may find contentment in the warmth of a full belly but we are also filling them and nurturing them in ways that cannot be measured by size or weight alone. Filling them with love, comfort, closeness, memories of softness, of skin, of touch, of being held, contained, anchored. Hands are a mother’s primary tool. They caress, clean, lift, tie, cook. They offer comfort, peace, refuge.
The Story of Us…
Playing, resting, cuddling, feeding. Relaxed, natural, stripped back and unposed. Your laughter is the golden sunlight that warms my skin. Your soft little hands, your squeals of joy…. your sweet familiar smell, you are my everything.
Children don’t need perfect mothers. Beautiful, chaotic, over flowing with life MOTHERS, they don’t have to be perfect to be perfectly wonderful.
When you give birth you not only give birth to your baby but to another role for yourself: mother. Transitioning from maiden to motherhood can sometimes leave you feeling such a huge range of contrasting emotions. There is a journey you must go on to rediscover yourself and integrate your new identity. Sometimes its messy, deep and raw but in the end you’ll find a new, more courageous you.
Let me create photographs that serve as a mirror to your beautiful and powerful transformation. When was the last time you did something for you?
