You might remember a ritual I did with a few friends last year. We gathered feathers and let them go. For Myriam, pictured above, it was a long infertility journey on her heart – a lot to let go of – but we all felt so much hope as we gathered again on the sand. We knew that baby was on its way.

I visited Myriam last week in southern california and it was my total delight and joy to photograph her, her husband and that gorgeous belly on the beach in Laguna. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Myriam more beautiful, and that’s saying a lot.

I just wanted to share these photos today, to celebrate Myriam and also to celebrate how life can surprise us again and again.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    I remember your earlier post and very much hoping for good things for this sweet (and seriously? UNFAIRLY GORGEOUS!) friend of yours. As a fellow infertility sufferer (now mother), what a joy to click on this post — and see that beautiful round belly of hers. And the relaxation, calmness and joy in her face is stunning. Celebrating along with her and you.

    Life sure is a mystery! But, this certainly, is instructive! Showing us to hope, trust, and learn to be willing. to align with the mystery..
