My dear, dear,
I am girl, grew up with a sister too and many dear friends and women surrounded me and still do but each day I get to learn this new language of you.
A language of love, honesty and messages.
A language only you hold.
A force of good.
I was asked to capture Chiselhurst Kindergartens magic, its heart, its essence for their new website https://www.chiselhurst.com.au
A little peep into the lucky children that get to attend this beautiful place with the kindest teachers.
"We keep love in a photograph.
It is a place to return to when that moment is gone.
It is a time forever frozen still"
On this night your mum took a breath, wrapped herself in courage and used her strength and belief to help you enter the world peacefully in a room full of love.
Here I share a small collection of memories you made together with your mum and dad, moments that made them feel alive as you entered earth side.
Their hearts were open, your mum closed her eyes to draw strength, with every piece of them they made memories to hold in their hearts forever and these photographs in their hands forever.
Every piece of you Clancy and every piece of your mum and dad were here.
A time documented, frozen still, a moment that you Clancy will always know how much you are loved.
Wherever you keep these photos, these memories know that inside these photos you are always together, you are home and you are so loved.
Keep these photographs next to your heart, hidden in a draw, under your pillow or hold them in your hand every now and then. Wherever they are kept remember your first meeting with these two beautiful souls, Samara and Nick, your mum and dad.
Remember your first kiss, your first cuddle, your first whisper, your first touch.
Your mummy has her hands full of you, full of beautiful Clancy but know that her heart is even fuller.
You wont ever be alone in this big wide world, you have a family that loves you dearly and when I first met you I believe deep in your soul you knew that you were safe and home and meant to be in those arms.
