My own personal images of a body that is expanding with new life.
I wanted to be alone while I took them though at the time I wished I had more hands, and eyes, and could jump out of my body quickly to peer through the view finder and press the button at the exact moment when everything stands still. The same way I do for other pregnant women.
Instead, I balanced the camera on my old wooden treasure box and Liberty's music stand. I balanced it over my head in my right hand while I bent my body far over to the left so that the camera would not be pictured.
I stood on a stool, on the sofa, in front of the mirror, and a window, and after exhausting myself, I edited what feels to me to be the most beautiful pictures I have ever taken...
34 weeks and 3 days... I can't wait to meet you little one.
