My dear baby, in 9 weeks I’ll bring you to this world. You will be celebrated the way you are, not the way you are expected to be.
I will make sure there’s no pressure for you to look a certain way and act in a certain manner.
Who you naturally are is enough! So be loud my dear baby! be athletic! be fearless! be messy! be joyous! be frustrated!
That is OK! Not only OK, but worthy of celebration!
All photographs by very talented Kate T Parker, fine art photographer based in Atlanta. Also a lucky mom to two amazing girls.
Kate T Parker also speaks on the subjects of women’s issues. Featured photographs come from the “Strong is the New Pretty” project which will be published as a book next year.
