Watson Family | Bendigo Maternity Photographer

May 2016

It was hard for me to imagine a second child in my life. When I felt I’d lavished my love on the one that made me a Mother.

What would two be like? How will it change my relationship with my first? How much more love can I have for two?

For me, my second son felt like a welcomed stranger in our house at first. I had 2.5 years of experiences and memories with my eldest and none with my newborn. They were both fully mine and both fully loved, but connection and relationship took time.

The thing is love doesn’t come in a quantity.

It just is. I just love. There is no measure.

The both are my heart.

This little family of four I recently photographed reminded me of those feelings as they’ll welcome their new member shortly.

This beautiful family I met two years ago when Laura booked me for newborn photography. She has since been a light in my life, an encourager and an honest true friend. You don’t meet many like her! I’m so thankful that God crossed our paths and what a special reflection to now photograph their next little precious human.

Imagine how our birth culture would change if the first word we associated birth with was LOVE instead of PAIN. Yes there is challenge and triumph, struggle and joy, but the greatest of these…. Love.

Let your heart see the beauty.

Let your eyes be absorbed in the love.

Thank you Dave & Adaline for the gift of witnessing this love again.

Melanie - As a doula, I applaud what you wrote (if we could see labor as love instead of pain). So true. In this culture we see love as an emotion, but ultimately love comes from unconditional commitment and self-sacrifice. I wrote a short blog post on this: http://www.devotedhandsdoula.com/blog/loves-sacrifice
