a project showcasing the

journey to motherhood

I speak openly with my clients about their journey to motherhood; we talk about the trials and tribulations that we all seem to go through, albeit some more challenging than others. We also talk about the wins. The fact that they are standing in my studio having their belly bump photographed to remember this miracle moment for ever in the form of a portrait;

It isn’t always an easy journey for some, to fulfil their inner most desire to become a parent. I know first hand the emotional roller coaster that a cycle of IVF treatment entails; But to celebrate the wins, to celebrate those who endured more than most to conceive and make their dreams a reality, I am compiling stories and portraits of women who want to share their success story of their journey to motherhood and will be showcasing these in a beautiful hard copy magazine (there will also be an electronic version but the printed copy will be spectacular!).

Tell me, do you have a unique success story of your journey to motherhood? Do you want to be photographed by ShaBo STUDIO showcasing your belly bump? Are you comfortable sharing your story of your journey to motherhood? then this project is perfect for you!

each and every single moment of our lives is a gift. the photos we choose to capture are for the generation to follow. to tell our story. to share who we are, who we were. it is to help them know where they are going because they will know where they came from.
