The NY Times just published a fabulous article by Diksha Basu that is perfect for today’s blogpost – not only is it about the “rebranding” of Motherhood, but I think it’s also about taking back what Motherhood is and should be! I highly recommend the read. Speaking of mothers, I absolutely adored this portrait […]
I wanted to bring out that aspect of her personality, but still show her tough side – the side that every mother or mother-to-be finds that she has: the inner goddess in all of us mothers that sheds our naive skin and comes forth post partum – braver, stronger, finally matured.
I realized two things: I needed to show off motherhood to the world as the beautiful, powerful role that it is, and I needed to give families the incredible, gorgeous studio portraits they deserved. Why can’t your family photo look like the Kardashians? Why can’t you look like that, too? What makes them so special, while you have to be stressed and go to a field outside at sunset in the cold? Did someone tell you that? Did someone say, “Well, you’ll never be a model“? Did someone say, “Just go with the so-and-so photographer, they’re more your style“? Did someone say, “That doesn’t look good on your body type, you should get this instead“? Did someone say, “Don’t be extra“? Did someone say, “Stop showing off“?
