I have mixed feelings about these kind of faceless belly shots. One the one hand, it’s a closeup shot of your belly, your growing connection to the baby within you, a memory to preserve of what that bump signified at that time, all the love, the hopes, and dreams that are so full within you, all bundled together. I have a picture like this this from my first, and I love it for its simple beauty, and I usually get one of these type images from each maternity shoot. And yet, I am also very apprehensive of the metonymy that reduces pregnant people to their bellies. I hear it a lot as a birth worker: “go to such and such event because their will be a lot of pregnant bellies there” and that sort of thing. I see dangerous trends in maternity care—and the politics that surrounds it—that strips women of their autonomy, as if they were only vessels of their unborn babies. It’s easy enough when pregnant to feel like the life of your baby can engulf your whole personhood. It is at once the joy and danger of motherhood to lose yourself in your children. Does anyone else have these kinds of thoughts of ambivalent feelings about this kind of baby bump images? What do you think? . . . #maternityphotography #maternityshoot #maternityphotoshoot #pregnancyphotoshoot #pregnancyphotography #austinmaternityphotographer #austinmaternityphotography #simplymothers #motherlovecollective #ig_motherhood #mom_hub #gmsx #b1withmoms #igmotherhood #ourmotherhoodstories #momentsinmotherhood #creativepregnancyphotos #dearestviewfinder #createandinspirehub #let_there_be_delight #project_faceless #cys_faceless #sm_faceless #tws_faceless

I’ve been waiting to post this. I don’t know why... but mostly because I love it and I have really high hopes that others will love it as much as I do. There is so much power in this single photograph. I believe with everything in me that there is no force on the entire planet that shows us the love of God stronger than the love between mother and child. There is absolutely nothing that could ever separate my love from my child. I will pick her up every time she falls with the same grace and love time and time again. And that’s how much Jesus loves us. That’s powerful stuff, y’all. Kiss your babies, and savor each tender moment with them. These days pass so quickly and they are such a gift to us. Okay, word vomit ending now.
