“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited.
Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”
– Anne Christian Buchanan
I love this quote because it so beautiful states two truths that I believe in heart and soul as a Puyallup maternity photographer. There is no other time when a woman is more womanly than when she is pregnant. Pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood are the crowning glowing of womanhood. It is the right of passage that boosts you into the throngs of Goddesshood (I made that word up). The other truth, that a woman carrying a child is “vitally alive”. Two lives protected by one body. And that body as it preforms biology’s greatest miracle is so perfectly gorgeous you have at one in one form the perfection of both nature and art. It is such a privileged to be a maternity photographer and to be a part of documenting the greatest miracle on Earth and the most beautiful rite of mother nature. Vanessa is stunning is a way that makes you victim to the mesmerizing powers of her strength and womanhood. She is a masterpiece. She is a life giver. A Goddess. A woman.
