Mother warrior – Estelle | Newborn portrait photography

What was your pregnancy like?

It challenged every element of what I knew about me. It was a tough journey from an emotional perspective but one I am so proud of now.

What does the word 'mother' mean to you?

To protect, guide, teach and learn. To love myself knowing I am accomplishing great things for my child and with my child.

What was your birth like?

A moment in time where the world ceased and that moment was purely devoted to me. I cried like I’ve never cried before as I felt every emotion come through my body.

Who inspires you as a mother?

My mum!

Anything else you would like to add?

It’s a tough fricken job but when my son curls up to me knowing he is safe and loved in my embrace then you realise it’s all worth it.
