Among its many rewards and challenges, motherhood is at its core a beautiful journey. I've been reminded of this recently, not only by my precious son, but also by watching several women in my life in their own journeys of pregnancy, birth and motherhood, all with an inspirational grace about them. My friend (and hairdresser) Candace is one of these women. Though I watch from afar, her passion for life, motherhood and style are evident even upon first meeting, and these traits seem to have carried her through her 2nd pregnancy, which is flying by with a speed that only chasing a toddler while being pregnant can bring. I was honored (and somewhat intimidated) to photograph Candace given her extensive background in the fashion world. However, I think we put each other at ease quickly and I truly enjoyed my time with this wonderful and vibrant woman. Now in turn, I hope you will enjoy these photos. Happy bump day!!
