“I feel that motherhood has so many meanings. I’m constantly amazed by women who have children and still somehow manage to conquer the world. I want to be that kind of example to my children. I want them to see me as not only a mother, but a strong, hardworking woman who follows her heart and dreams too. From my perspective, these images captured the purity and beauty of motherhood. It’s also hard to feel pretty when you’re 8-months pregnant, but with a photographer like Abigail who has such an amazing, artistic eye, I felt like the prettiest pregnant woman alive. She knows how important it is for a mom to feel beautiful and comfortable while carrying. Being able to literally stand on a mountaintop that was part of my childhood and will now be part of this little one’s childhood made me feel like I can be that mother who can conquer the world.” Marie, Expectant Mother
“I absolutely love photographing Marie (mother) and her family! She has been my friend and client for about seven years now. Marie is so natural in front of the camera, and truly appreciates photography as art. She has always trusted my vision and ideas, and our sessions together have always been amazing as a result. So naturally, when I suggested she hike up a mountain at 8 months pregnant, she didn’t even bat an eye! I look forward to many more years of our adventures working together!
I absolutely love photographing every aspect of motherhood. I believe it is one of the most beautiful acts you can witness as a photographer. I feel privileged that families invite me to document the bonds of love between them. It just makes me feel good inside!” Abigail, Photographer
