I literally can’t stand how fast time moves from a motherhood perspective. I blink and Chase is a year older and Harper will be basically one in five minutes. What thee fuck…slow down father time I can’t keep up. Anyway even though she’s almost 8 months now, my man Trivell took these pictures for her 6 month shoot. I’ve already posted them on social but I decided to post them here as well.
What I love to do in photos is tie things together that make the images more meaningful to me and for my kids as they look back at them. I want to capture as much as I can because we all know time isn’t forever. When I’m no longer here, I want them to have a million references to assure them my presence and influence means my spirit will be carried with them forever. That may sound super deep but when I think about my kids I want them to know I will always be present in their lives.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a ton of images from my baby shower because I was running around like a crazy person. But my girl Trish was on it, she snapped just enough for the photo album. Thank you boo, I love her! So long story short, I designed my dress for our baby shower and it’s the same dress I wore to take these photos. Albeit I’m swimming in it now, keeping it from falling off in a public park is another memory I’ll have from that day ha.
Anyway, the dress is symbolic of the time I was carrying her, to now sitting with her, a healthy happy baby taking her 6 month photos. When we look back at these, I can’t wait to explain the level of detail and care I operated at and how important it is to do things with awareness and love for family. What I hope is that both she and Chase sense the unconditional love I have for them, and reciprocate that love and mentality to their family one day.
So while some may say these are just pictures, they’re so much more to me. There will be memories on walls all over my home and I don’t care who doesn’t like it. Although likely anyone who thinks like that wouldn’t be in my home lol. I’m particular about the energy I surround my family and me with for reals!
I love these photos!!! So thank you very much Trivell, you deserve many trophies my man!!!
