This weeks theme was LIGHT.
We had cloud cover most of the week so I utilized some soft light in my living room.
I knew I wanted to use a chiaroscuro lighting technique to play into this weeks theme but wound up being metaphorically inspired by Harper and included a little bit of that – below.
So.. here.. we.. go..
I USED to let that word define my little girl. The weight it carried was incredibly heavy and we are not victims – SHE IS NOT A VICTIM. Yes… she’s seen fear in the deepest sense: fear of sound, light, water, and even the slightest touch from the ones who love her the most. But you know what? She’s also seen PROGRESS… HOPE.. AND HARD WORK.
She no longer pockets her food until she chokes… she no longer runs away screaming in fear from the sound of running water.. or bangs her head incessantly as she falls asleep.
As of recently, we are able to go out and do things without fear of overwhelming her.. The weight of those words, “your child has Autism” no longer haunt me because she is an OVERCOMER.
SHE IS THE LIGHT.
SHE IS ABLE.
The rest of these images are beautiful TO ME.
Haydn and Hattie are little lights in their own ways as well but I think I’ll allow the remainder of the images to speak for themselves.
