Maternity, Birth, + Babies
I didn’t really understand the importance of photos until becoming a mom. I know it sounds morbid, but giving birth and bringing new life into the world made me think of death and the fact that one day I wouldn’t be around anymore. It’s a terrifying thought thinking that one day your children will be without you, and hopefully you’re lucky enough to stick around for a very long time— but when the time does come, I decided I wanted to leave my children with as many photos of us together as possible. I wanted them to see the way my belly swelled when they were inside me, the look of pure elation when they were placed on my chest for the first time, and the love that I had for them in even the smallest daily tasks. I have learned that photos are not just for us— they are for our children.
