“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.” – Osho
The day the nurses hand that tiny human in a mother’s hands, she takes the biggest blind leap into a completely uncharted territory! The amount of books one reads or hours spent listening to parenting talks, only prepares one for the journey of motherhood to a limited degree. The role of motherhood catches one completely off guard, not just the day one becomes a mother, but almost every single day from that day forward! Continue reading “Signe + Ashton Mors Dag Session”

That being my experience and as one who loves documenting stories, I wanted to put together a series titled ‘Wonder Women’ – photographs + real life stories of successful women who have chosen to pursue their passion. I hope these short stories will inspire girls, wives and moms, irrespective of age, background or education to DREAM and chase that dream!
Here, I am debuting my series with Gisele Almeida – a travel blogger and influencer! I photographed these pictures at the very scenic Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde in Stockholm, Sweden!
