Welcome to my own little plot of internet space. I am so glad you found your way here, and hope that wherever you are, you are viewing the pages of my website while feeling the kicks and tumbles of the life that grows within you. While I haven't had the privilege of being a mother yet myself, my respect and reverence for the title is what inspires me to preserve the wonder of it through the combination of both digital and traditional analogue film.
My parents have been married for almost 40 years. Their story is a simple one - two friends who fell in love, got engaged, and were married in the church my dad grew up in. And like most couples, they were hopeful to start a family together in a few years. Those few years turned into ten and their chances of conceiving became one in a million. But by God's grace and goodness, my parents were able to adopt my older sister and five years later get their one in a million surprise with me.
My passion for telling birth stories and sharing the beauty of motherhood begins here, with the woman who carried me and knew me before anyone else - my mama. Maybe you have a similar story of years of hoping for yes's and only receiving no's, and it's finally your turn. Maybe your journey to motherhood was short, but it hasn't been easy. Maybe you're struggling to see the beauty or the meaning in the work you're doing as a mama. Maybe you're always the first to volunteer to take the photo as opposed to being in the photo because you don't like the way you look in pictures. Let me come alongside you and allow you to see yourself through my eyes and my lens. The legacy you're creating and cultivating within your family deserves to be kept, to be remembered.
