The Idea for the calendar Mums came from my very good friend Rachael. After having a very heart felt discussion with her husband, where he told her he loved each and every stretch march she had because they reminded him of their children she had a dream that night that we made this calendar together.
I have run my Photography company for 10 years now but this was defiantly the first time I have been recommended in a dream... and by myself none the less. Im sure you will agree with me that like the rest of the wonderful women in this calendar my friend Rachael is gorgeous but since having her two amazing children she had problems with her body confidence. We discussed it at length and thought ‘Why do women put themselves through all the stress and depression of worrying about weight and scars and stretch marks?’ You should be thinking about is where these marks and wobbly bits came from and what the end result was ... your children! “Our bodies are precious. They are amazing. We need to celebrate this.” So with the help of The Strand in chelmsford who kindly offered to do our ladies hair on the day of the shoot. We managed to create this calendar that we are oh so proud of. I’d like to thank all the women who were brave enough to bare it all and join us in raising as much money as we can for this amazing charity. Sands is in place to support anyone affected by the death of a baby and to improve the bereavement care parents and families receive.
Because of the support from people like you Sands are able to provide Memory Boxes free of charge to all families who have suffered, giving them a place to keep their precious memories. As well as supporting and promoting research to reduce the number of families who have to go through this pain.
Thank you for standing with us and blowing a kiss to the sky as we remember those babies known only to us who were just too beautiful for earth.
