When I started this project it was with another wonderful group of like-minded people - almost all women, and almost all of them mothers. As mothers we have a tendency to take a lot of photographs of our children (and without us in them because we are always behind the camera!) however today I made a special effort to have myself included in a photograph, in memory of one member of our group, Kerryn, who was tragically and suddenly killed this week, while 8 months pregnant with her second child.
You can find Kerryn's blog here: http://
There are no words to express the tragedy of Kerryn's sudden departure from the family that she loved and treasured every day, with every breath, and every photograph of the little girl that she held so precious. And it is the one saving grace, perhaps, that her daughter has such a wonderful and vivid collection of memories that her mother saved up just for her - one every day - that she might be able to look back on one day. As one of her very last photographs was with her daughter, we are reminded that it is sometimes important to leave memories for our children, not just as we saw them through our eyes, but of ourselves living life alongside and with them.
How you live a lot of your days on the beach - in the sling :-) (note: there was a hat but it got thrown off of your head by the wind and you refused to wear a wet hat and decided to try and bite me every time I attempted to put it back on!)
