I thought more about the post yesterday after it was posted than before I pushed “publish.”
Partly due to some of the comments I received, and this link that Jess and Julz sent on to me.
It got me thinking, I’d love to have a good photo of me and my scar so that I can look at it and think of it fondly rather than in distress like I do at the moment.
I think of it as ugly and want it to go away – but I love the idea that we look at it as “wearing our hearts on our stomachs.”
Really love that concept. I had a little mind paradigm shift there.
I would love to do some black and white photos of c-section scars or birth scars.
I would like to get a few moms into a studio and take some studio pics that they can have and also I can have in a gallery.
I think it would be even better to wait for better weather and do it outside in a private garden.
I am not 100% clear in my head of how to do them yet. I figure I can work it out. I want it to be something you would keep and cherish, rather than hide in the back of your underwear drawer.
If you are in Cape Town, feel like getting na.k.ed or partly clad in a studio or outdoors – and want to do this drop me a note. My email address is along the side bar, or leave a comment and I will contact you.
I am thinking if I have 3 – 5 woman, I can rent a studio for 2 – 3 hours, if the ladies are keen to chip in to cover the cost of the studio, I will sort out the rest.
We can do wine and photography — I find that is not always the worst combination.
Drop me a note if you are interested in the idea.
If you do not want to do it with anyone else, drop me a note and we can see what we can do.
Or if you have a suggestion to improve on this idea. I am not sure when I will do it, but it is running around in my head.
