The Shield Maiden

She is the shield maiden
A lady fierce
Wild as the great southern wind
With a strength that has been built from her bones.
She is the warrior
The fighter.
Her power is echoed with each breath
And a beat that drums just for her.
Her skin is woven of hope
Strengthened in her fiery song.
Yes, she may be a maiden
But she carries with her the flag of all the battles lost
Of the ones who came before.
May we celebrate her victory
For she is the rainbow.
The sweetest skjoldmø.

All the pieces

Every curve,
every breath,
every ripple,
every cell,
every part.

BAIE wines

Yesterday was my last wedding for 2016 and I could not have imagined a better way to spend it than at the spectacular Baie Wines.

Looking forward to having some weekend downtime until the new year!

Spaces between breath

There will always be space
between the very breath of your skin and theirs
that feels like an ocean.
And so you bring them closer.
And closer still.
And it is still never close enough.

On how they are loved

I often wonder if the babies I photograph are truly aware of how much they are adored.
Not just aware of who loves them, but how they are loved.
It is such a privileged notion to know love in this way
and I am so lucky I get to share in this every day.
