Romy about our story, being pregnant and being a mother
This body carried my daughter for 9 months, fed her for the next 14 months and
has been home to my son for almost 8 months now. It will not be the same as before,
but that is not me as a person either. And I like that, now. As if another woman was born with motherhood.
A woman who looks at herself less critically, focuses on the strength and beautiful things that the female body
is capable of, and stands for. Instead of concentrating on what is always better, tighter, leaner or different.
During my first pregnancy I hardly made any pictures, I found it difficult to surrender to the changes that
a pregnancy entails, the physical discomfort and I thought too much about the 'magic' of being pregnant, creating life.
While I did not experience it the first time and of course every pregnancy is different. This time it feels very different,
and whether that is due to the growth I have experienced as a woman now that I am a mother, or because I am so much
more aware of the role model that belongs to that new role, I do not know. But I am proud of my curves, the changes,
and embrace it being pregnant and my body so that I enjoy it much more and more consciously. And now I know,
looking back at pictures of myself from my first pregnancy with Bobby Jo, that that critical self-view is such a waste of time.
And more importantly, also what will we give our children when we focus on that. That is one of the most striking lessons
I've learned so far, unconsciously they change us. As a mother I choose to give them self-love.

What kind of beauty is inspiring...?
Looking at Romy’s and seeing hers is easy,
but it is her character and how she looks towards the element of beauty
is what makes her so inspiring to someone like me.
The way a woman becomes a muse is when you think of how she wears it while your creating.
My work is expressed by the woman who wears it, and when a woman is comfortably herself and
moves freely she wears it more beautifully than ever.

I will tell you,
of your worth
not your beauty everyday.
(your beauty is a given. every being is born beautiful)
knowing your worth can save your life.
raising you on beauty alone,
you will be starved.
you will be raw.
you will be weak.
always in need of someone telling you how beautiful you are.

‘’an. everlasting. atmosphere.‘’
- Ode to mothers
you are the air
you move around my world
like the atmosphere
circulates around earth.
and like the wind
dances around countries…
just because you are not
it doesn’t mean
you are not
here with me
I wouldn’t exist without
your unconditional love
knowing no limits
fearless and forceful
welcoming uncontrolled paths
Nature brings to life
it challenges and explores
and maintains whimsical beauty
with uncountable layers
with unlimited colours
so tell me,
where’s the difference
between nature and you?
what sets you apart?
maybe the magnificent thought
I wish to carry with me
