Impressive it is, when a mother is to be seen with her child. Protection, Care, Attention, Affection, Empathy, Nutrition and so much more; in one word ... Unconditional Love towards her child - and visa versa. However i noticed, mothers tend to forget themselves in the process of motherhood, their focus shifts more than often completely to their offspring, home and mostly as well work. It was especially empowering to see Luvinia and her daughter, becasue she puts herself in a healthy place of taking care of herself, in order to provide for her child. A true lioness! Stepping up to take the journey within through Photography by having your image taken has become for many mom's some dreadful encounter. They solely see themselves in the light of change of their bodies through maternity and maturing instead of truly seeing who they are. Therefore i challenge and guide you to have your portrait taken, to see yourself how i see you, how the world sees you! Fall in love with Yourself. (Again)
