8/52 Märchen 
Na, wer errät um welches Märchen es sich handelt?
Meine Leidenschaft gilt ja schon lange dem Bearbeiten meiner Bilder mit Photoshop. Ich mag es „Kunstwerke“ zu erschaffen, mich kreativ auszuprobieren und dabei immer wieder neue Dinge zu lernen. 
Bei diesem Thema hatte ich sofort viele Bilder mit meinen Kindern im Kopf und habe mich letztendlich für ein Märchen entschieden in dem es um Schwestern geht, die nicht in Rivalität zueinander stehen 😊

28/29 ilusión 
Ilusión es la que tengo de haberme hecho este tatuaje... por varias razones, la primera es que llevo soñando con tatuajes desde la adolescencia y hasta ahora solo tenia uno. Y la segunda razón es por haber tapado una antigua cicatriz... y no hablo de los 15 puntos que estaban visibles en mi brazo no, hablo de la cicatriz que me dejó el hecho de haber llegado un día a autolesionarme por culpa de una pelea de novios descontrolada. Ahora que ya no es visible, es hora de pasar página de una vez, y lo hago con mucha ilusión pensando en el futuro tan bonito que tengo ahora por delante ✨✨✨

*Ooh baby baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Ooh baby baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl*
 Oggi ascoltavo Cat Stevens, una delle mie canzoni preferite. In effetti è sempre stato un mondo selvaggio, un po' matto ed è difficile cavarsela con solo un sorriso. Ma ti guardo dietro un vetro e sento che il mondo è ancora tuo, è ancora vostro. Non riesco proprio ad immaginare cosa ti circonderà, se macchine volanti o una pioggia incessante, se robot tuttofare o sesso virtuale. Ma avrai un mondo da disegnare come lo ho avuto io, più acciaccato, più tormentato anche se sono certa che farai del tuo meglio per provare a renderlo un posto migliore, per seminare amore.

I normally save a before and after photos for my stories, but why not try something different today? The smallest part of my job is showing up pushing the shutter button. The interactions with you and your children to try and bring out your best and make you comfortable, the hours of editing, the education I am constantly enrolling in, the experimenting I do outside of work to try new techniques or stretch the bounds of my creativity- that is where a lot of my job is. That’s not all of it, but it’s what helps me create and grow. With as large of galleries as I deliver, hand editing can take more time than I wish it did. Especially if you’re an over thinker like me 😆 Anything worth doing is worth doing well though, right?

Lately I’ve been feeling like my postpartum days are long gone. They are. And honestly, that makes me sad. Maybe I’m upset I didn’t have much knowledge to properly take care of myself and maybe I’m upset I didn’t celebrate my body enough for what it had done. If I was offered a do-over, I’d take it. I’d do some things differently.

But although those days are over, one thing I know for certain is that my body remembers. It remembers growing a human for 9 months because the lines across my abdomen will forever be evident. It remembers vomiting from the smell of fish because I still can’t stand the smell of fish! It remembers the kicks and jabs because I’m immediately taken back when I feel those internal spasms. My body remembers.

So, Mamas in the fresh postpartum days, you may dread them now, but here’s your reminder that your body deserves all the praise. And Mamas out of the postpartum stage, time will pass, but our bodies will always remember. #AsherRodolfo

.

Últimamente he estado sintiendo que mis días de posparto han pasado. Y es cierto. Y honestamente, eso me pone triste. Tal vez porque no tenía mucho conocimiento para cuidarme adecuadamente o tal vez también porque no celebré mi cuerpo lo suficiente por lo que había hecho. Como me gustaría revivir esos días porque haría unas cosas diferente.

Pero a pesar de que esos días han terminado, una cosa que sé con certeza es que mi cuerpo recuerda. Recuerda haber crecido un humano durante 9 meses porque las líneas a través de mi abdomen serán evidentes para siempre. Recuerda vomitar por el olor de pescado porque todavía no soporto el olor de pescado! Recuerda las patadas y los golpes porque me devuelven inmediatamente cuando siento esos espasmos internos. Mi cuerpo recuerda.

Entonces, a las madres en los días de posparto, tal vez no lo soportas ahora, pero éste es tu recordatorio de que tu cuerpo merece que lo celebras. Y a las madres fuera de los días de posparto, el tiempo pasará, pero nuestros cuerpos siempre recordarán.

058 / 366 (W9): It was a chilly one today! So when Orion asked if I could make them some Hot Chocolate, I obliged. I also told them that meant I would probably be taking photos of them. MUHAHAHA! Gotta get those daily photos in somehow! I love how chunky Logan's little hands look. .

Becoming a first time mom is so hard. There’s so much going on mentally, emotionally, hormonally, and physically. It’s like a tornado. The stress that our culture adds is not helpful either.
.
BREASTFEED.
DON’T LET ANYONE TOUCH BABY.
ACT HAPPY EVEN IF YOU AREN’T.
VACCINATE.
DON’T VACCINATE.
LOSE THE WEIGHT.
TRASH OTHER MOMS.
.
Just to name a few 😐
I understand this pressure. And honestly, it comes with EVERY baby in my experience. And then continues through each phase of parenthood. Ever evolving.
.
The initial shock of this new world is hard to get over though, because you don’t always expect it. You may have been warned of it, but it’s a whole new perspective once you’re in it.
.
So here’s my advice to all you new and expecting first time mamas:
❤️ Take criticism gracefully
• People love to give their opinion. Sometimes it’s helpful and sometimes not. But do what’s best for you. Take the meat and leave the bones. Taking criticism about your parenting is SOO HARD! But swallow your pride, examine the facts, do your research, and make the decision that you feel is best for your family.
🧡 Don’t follow the millennials.
• I know being offended is the new cool thing. But it’s just so toxic for you and your family. Don’t let the fact that the 75 year old lady at Bed Bath & Beyond patted your boob instead of your baby’s bottom while you were wearing him get your panties in a twist (true story 🤦🏻‍♀️). Don’t be offended when someone tries to suggest a different way (it might just be what’s best for your family-or not).
💛 Do what you TRULY feel is best.
• I know these decisions can be hard. Most of them are. Most of them require swallowing your pride and moving in a different direction. Do your research when someone makes a suggestion to you. And do your research before making a suggestion to someone else. But most importantly, just do what you feel is right for your family and love others—even if they make a different choice.
.

Based on this week's earlier weather forecast, I was really thinking we would be snowed in by now. I kinda panicked because I'm running out of ideas to keep the kids preoccupied at home all day. So the other night, in preparation, I ran to the store and purchased some craft supplies to keep us busy. Low and behold, Mother Nature brought nothing but rain yesterday (not complaining), and while I probably should have waited and saved our projects for another snow day (I'm sure we haven't seen the last of snow yet, this is Maine after all), we still did one of our crafts today regardless because we were all so excited. This explains Lyla standing in front of the sink in this photo. We've got tie dye items (using the Shibori method) soaking in there, and we are just dying (no pun intended, haha) to see how they all come out! #punny #artsyfartsy #mainelife

We've got tie dye items (using the Shibori method) soaking in there, and we are just dying (no pun intended, haha) to see how they all come out! #punny #artsyfartsy #mainelife . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #littleadventures_bigpictures #dearphotographer #theeverydayportrait #hellostoryteller #one_magic_moment #ourcandidlife #livethelittlethings #thingsiwanttoremember #documentyourdays #oureverydaymoments #littlestoriesofmylife #thesincerestoryteller #thehappynow #presentoverperfect #letthekids #this_is_parenthood #momswithcameras #parenthood_moments #let_there_be_delight #purelyauthenticchildhood #magicofchildhood #runwildmychild #wildandbravelittles #letthemexplore - 32 minutes ago

Yesterday in my stories I shared a pic of a beautiful 20 x 30 German etched Hahnemühle framed print, well today another one is being sent out, this time with a torn edge finish. Just because my story today will disappear I’m sharing this one here 🖼 There’s nothing quite like museum quality photographic art when going on display in your home, when quality matters this is why you choose your photographer carefully. I feel so fortunate to have a wonderful client base who appreciates the art I create for them. This is the culmination of a family coming together, time and effort shooting and editing, and a process that goes far beyond my skill set in the lab ❤️

Another colorful image from the Now Gallery. I wanted to make sure and show W - he does so well at museums... and he also ended up with the chicken pox last week, so this picture shows his itchy hands as well.
