I don't normally process images in black and white. I'm so in love with color both bold and muted. But these pictures, they needed to be simplified aesthetically to fully feel the intensity of his soul and spirit. The elder child, I love him so. ❤️
Motherhood. Raw and precious motherhood. I missed World Prematurity Day by some hours, but wanted to share this image of my sweet friend nourishing her 2-month-old nursling on his due date. This woman spent her days living in the NICU and then going home to breathe life into her oldest boys. She thanks her family, friends, doctors, nurses for love and support for which I'm sure we fell short. I thank her for her openness, vulnerability, sleepless nights, tired body, hours of pumping, fierce love for her family, and all the ways she is enough for herself and the people around her because she emanates warmth, love, strength, and dedication to us all. And also thanks for letting me hold that baby to my heart's content. ❤️
Halloween vibes from my son's amazing teacher. ✨ Photo from the most spectacular @thegardenmarietta Kingdom of Halloween event. Second photo is one she sent me of him knitting with colored pencils during class. ❤️ I love that kid.
Take me back to the ocean, please and thank you. @justmamaandtheboy kept an eye on me from her beach chair while I dove for sea shells because what kind of mom would I be if I didn't bring home shells for the children I left at home.
