“Making the decision to have a child—it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone
Photographing women who are expecting is truly like photographing one of the most miraculous things in the universe. I remember in college, studying cellular biology, and touching on the miracle of how life starts in the womb. Cell replication starts, and then, at some point, the cells start deciding they will be a limb, a brain cell, a hair, an ear lobe, and so on… I remember raising my hand, and asked more about cellular differentiation, and just HOW DID that cell know what to become. My professor stared at me and went on with the class.
I think it’s because it’s truly a miracle. Congratulations Carrie on your little miracle coming soon. I can’t wait to meet her.
