Celebrating Myriam





















You might remember a ritual I did with a few friends last year. We gathered feathers and let them go. For Myriam, pictured above, it was a long infertility journey on her heart – a lot to let go of – but we all felt so much hope as we gathered again on the sand. We knew that baby was on its way.

I visited Myriam last week in southern california and it was my total delight and joy to photograph her, her husband and that gorgeous belly on the beach in Laguna. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Myriam more beautiful, and that’s saying a lot.

I just wanted to share these photos today, to celebrate Myriam and also to celebrate how life can surprise us again and again.

    I remember your earlier post and very much hoping for good things for this sweet (and seriously? UNFAIRLY GORGEOUS!) friend of yours. As a fellow infertility sufferer (now mother), what a joy to click on this post — and see that beautiful round belly of hers. And the relaxation, calmness and joy in her face is stunning. Celebrating along with her and you.

    Life sure is a mystery! But, this certainly, is instructive! Showing us to hope, trust, and learn to be willing. to align with the mystery..
