Coast to Coast Project ~January | New Forest Photographer | Ann Owen Photography

I am so aware how lucky we are to be able to walk to our little beach and feel the sea air. We are almost a month into our third national lockdown and being able to come here on a regular basis has been so good for us on so many different levels.

A Through The Window Session | New Forest Photographer | Ann Owen Photography

Just towards the end of the second lockdown, I had my first 'Through the Window' session and it was so incredibly special. "Lockdown two wasn’t a surprise for me. I hoped that it wouldn’t happen, but it wasn’t as big of a shock as it was the first time. It did bring a feeling of sadness though as the hope of seeing my mother, grandmother and my sister and her family this year was pushed back yet again."

This was such a special session which happened way back in September when the beautiful Heather was still in bloom, the forest is looking so much different now! This was my first session with two friends who also happened to both be breastfeeding, and I really hope it isn't my last! It was all about sisterhood and celebrating where we are at in our motherhood journeys and it just genuinely filled me up with so much joy!

New Forest Motherhood Session~Honouring A Belly Birth | Ann Owen Photography

This feels like the beginning of reclaiming my body, after an emergency section and a planned one 18 months later. Both so different, one with traumatic and partial memories, the other gentle and considerate but still missing something. There is still a sense of disappointment in my own body for not being able to birth my babies as I'd hoped, creating a hole somewhere inside.

Motherhood Session~ Laura & Ava~ Lymington Family Photographer | Ann Owen Photography

When we are a mother to more than one child it can be so hard to find the time and space to give each of them some special one on one time and this is what this session was all about. It was all about capturing the love between Laura and her eldest, the one who made her a mother.
