Celebrating The Postpartum Body
First off, I want to say a huge thank you to the beautiful women that I have featured in this blog. This article would not be possible without your courage to come forward and model. Pregnancy and postpartum can be the most difficult and rewarding times in a woman's life. Our bodies endure so much to grow and support the life we give birth to.
A growing social media presence in our lives can make dealing with these changes even more difficult on new moms. The struggle to return to pre-baby weight and fit in to those old jeans is one we hear of often. I hope through my love and passion for photography I can show how beautiful the postpartum body really is. These photos are real, they are raw, and they are powerful just like you! Every mark, pound, and wrinkle are a result of growing and nurturing those sweet babies you hold in your arms. Be proud and embrace who you are. We come in all shapes and sizes. We have different ethnicities, upbringings, and beliefs but one thing remains true: we love our babies. Now it's time to love ourselves! Tell your daughters that they are beautiful. Tell your friend who is pushing that stroller up the street every day how amazing she looks. Tell your wives how much you love them even more for giving you the greatest gift in your life.
Your imperfections are perfect.
