Question: “When does motherhood commence?” I mean, does a woman move into motherhood in the midst of giving birth?… or does motherhood begin when she intentionally begins preparing for it? Just a thought that I drifted into while preparing these photos.
What we have today is 3 pics of a great woman who is slowly, yet intentionally, moving from the realm of scientific exactness into the world of being a mother … and all that which is somewhat less than exact and ordered and controlled. Nonetheless I tried to capture the picture of a person who has been mentally and emotionally preparing herself (an hubby too) for the arrival of a bub. She’s definitely in the status of a “lady in waiting. Around 7 or 8 weeks to go. She will be a great mother. Her bub is in safe hands.
