I’m so excited to tell you about an amazing series that is coming to Mellow Baby’s classes in Kanata and Westboro this fall.
THE MISSING FRAME - Pop Up Series with Irina Fortey photography
If you are not familiar with Irina and her art please do yourself a favour and head on over to her website and check it out; www.irinaphotography.ca
When Irina’s seven-year-old son told her she was missing from their family photos. Simply because she was too busy taking them. She realized she was creating photos for herself and zero for her children. They wanted to see their mother in photos, loving them, playing with them or simply glowing with pride. Born from the inspiration of a child, the missing frame series gives mothers and caregivers a chance to have their photo taken with their child, so they can gift them of a memory of their motherhood.
Every participant receives a short session and a photo as a keepsake.
Irina is a friend of mine and we have had this discussion on several occasions.
Motherhood isn’t just about the ‘perfect’ times with your little one, it about ALL of the real times as well. When you didn’t have your make-up on, when all you wanted was to be alone, when your little wakes you up in the morning looking for a cuddle, these are all amazing moments that make up the bond between you and your baby and we both feel strongly that it is so important to capture these moments.
You have never had such a fan club as you have when your kids are little. They think you are amazing, they think you can do anything, they think you are beautiful and funny and an incredible singer. I know we sometimes laugh at these things but seriously, but can we just take a moment to appreciate that? How nice is that? How amazing to have someone look at you through rose coloured glasses with nothing but love in their eyes? All your imperfections and insecurities mean nothing to them, you are perfect and they love you more than anything. So show them that, get in those photos with them and capture those moments, that to them, are perfection.
I’m SO EXCITED that Irina is bringing her missing frame photo series to Mellow Baby. That means, that anyone who is enrolled in my Wellington Signing class at FAB BABY and my Kanata classes (massage & signing) at the Glen Carin United Church and my Barrhaven Massage & Signing clases will get a session with Irina as part of your sign up!
Which give you even more reason to come and check out one of my amazing classes. September sign up is now open, (click here) Mellow Baby has new locations in; Barrhaven, Kanata, Westboro & Orleans and it would be so great to see some of you there!
