Maternity Photoshoot in the Woods

So with my little girl turning one this week, I’ve been totes emosh (!) and reminiscing a lot about the whole experience of motherhood so far.

It’s staggering to think that it’s over a year ago now that I was pregnant, carrying her inside me and that she’s been around longer now than I carried her around for. Mind-blowing.

I’m so glad that when I was pregnant, I took the opportunity to have a maternity photoshoot and to document the whole process as much as possible.

This is something very relevant to me at the moment and to a lot of other women I’ve met over this last 10 months.

When I went off on maternity leave for the first time, I was so utterly excited to be embarking on the next chapter of my life and to meet out baby and become a mum. That’s all I wanted to focus on, think about and work towards. It’s such a privilege to be a mother that I didn’t want to miss a single second of it. So I vowed that work would take a backseat temporarily and I’d concentrate on myself and my family.

That’s exactly what I did.Continue reading
