inspired photography

Moms and babies and Dads and babies make great photography subjects. Just ask Nan Phelps, noted Berkeley photographer, who made an amazing gift to some moms who might not otherwise have been able to afford her. Phelps worked with The Perinatal Council to photograph lower-income moms and their babies in Richmond, CA-- then developed the film and mounted and framed the images.

I thought about what a wonderful, powerful gift this is. There's nothing like these early months of parenting. One can live an extremely full life, full of travel and adventure, and the experience of parenting will still be totally unlike anything else. To capture the early days in such a meaningful , artistic way is a gift unlike any other.
