“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” – Sophia Loren
A little celebration of Mothers and the devotion they have for their children, the love that no one can prepare you for, the endless, unselfish love which starts before we even get to see, hold and cuddle them for the first time.
The birth of a baby is one of the most amazing and wonderful things in the world, and there is nothing I love more than to photograph new-born and young babies – and sneak a little cuddle or two.
I am slowly catching up after our 2 weeks in the sun, which is becoming our annual summer trip to Italy and already want to go again.
This year I brought my film camera with me, 2 rolls of film were posted off to UK film lab and I am so looking forward to getting the scans back. Digital is great but I love the excitement of seeing a photo that you had forgotten you took, you are not constantly scrolling back through the photos on your camera, you slow down, you take the photo and then a few weeks later you get to re-live it all again! I don’t care how perfect they are, these are personal photos, personal memories and that is enough for me. They will be printed out and kept in a little album or photo book – not kept on a PC, iPad or iPhone.
The children are off on holidays so I have less time for my work, July has turned out to be busy but hopefully August I will get to catch up on some personal projects I have been putting off.
Above is a little memory of a lovely walk we did in Ballyvaughan early in June.
