I was flipping through photographs the other day and had to stop for a moment.
This was Ella just a couple of days before Tehya was born.
I was struck by a number of things when I saw it. How much she has changed in just 5 months. How glad I am that I take the time to capture regular images. How powerful a photograph can be in it’s ability to transport you back in time. When I look at this photograph, I remember all the things I was feeling. The anticipation, the nerves, the joy and the happiness. I remember our morning “hang-outs” in her bed, how small her voice was but mostly how much that smile makes me happy. It’s the one thing that hasn’t changed. It’s still one of my favourite moments in the morning, seeing that smile.
