Tess & Winnie | Kintsugi Mama Project

Tess and Winnie were my first models to come in for the Kintsugi Mama Project. It was my first time getting so up close and personal with someone else, but I have to say, they both made it so easy! I loved my session with them both, and even the sun came out offering some great light and shadow play which I really enjoyed using!

Winnie was all smiles and Tess is such a lovely soul. Here is what Tess had to say about her stretch marks and why she wanted to take part in the project:

I think it’s important to celebrate women and mothers. Growing up, I didn’t even know about stretch marks, and had no idea what was on my own skin. I think they should be celebrated! I used to hate them, but since becoming a mum, I’m really proud of them and what they show my body has achieved.
