through this whole maternity process i'm learning how to stand up for myself when i might not have in the past, the maternal instinct to protect one's own will come in handy

i've been thinking a lot about materials, both raw and otherwise, that helped to shape my childhood

and i've decided on the bathroom #selfie for documenting my weekly progress

it is so much a part of the instagram, and cultural lexicon--a weird self-centered way of showing off--in the same way that a staged maternity photo shoot reflects that narcissistic nature we all have 

i do like tapping into the history of artistic self-portraiture. after all, what other subject is more readily available when inspriation strikes?
