Nine months in the making - part 11

Over a year ago, I embarked in a photography project in which I wanted to document a baby's first year through photography. So I wrote a post in our local community on google plus.
Shahy and Haythem responded and the rest is history. :)

Their beautiful baby girl Haya turned one today and I was fortunate to be on holidays, so we spent a relaxing afternoon at a beautiful park.
It was the last shoot for the project and the year, so I would like to thank Shahy and Haythem for being part of the project. May you continue to enjoy this beautiful journey that is parenthood :)

Amazing what can be achieved when you dare greatly. - ("Daring greatly" by Brené Brown)

Beyond the alphabet

Jump! - Copyright Maria Mastrogiuseppe

You are on your way
To a future
That although unknown
Is full of dreams
And hope

The pieces of a puzzle
Are scattered
Still being made
They will come together
In chunks, step by step

There are gaps
Many gaps
In your learning
But you have arrived
And you are showing up

We'll be there for you
In good and bad
Both must co-exist
But you will find your way
Just like we did
