Through the Windows | Artifact Motherhood, May 2021

Through the windows.

Girls, I seem to have inadvertently created a little series of images with a common thread. A series of you both, and occasionally me, gazing out of the windows of our Delhi apartment. Pauses in our days, wondering what’s going on and how things are on the other side. It’s May 2021, and sometimes I wonder with these blog posts if I should fill in the back story – the why and how and what? Or maybe be a better blogger, so the story is more complete.

But I take photos to hold memories tight, and I am sure when you are older just looking at these images will take you back to these Delhi days, without many words needed. The intensity of the covid situation here over this last 6 weeks of lockdown, and all the interweaving feelings we 3 have as we wait this time out will come back to you as you look at them.

And I hope, oh how I hope, that as you look at these in the future there will be a sense of relief too – that we came out the other side, battered maybe, but as a strong little unit, resilient and resourceful. I’m always proud of how you face up to, and talk through tough times when they hit us full force – please don’t bottle it up.

Look out of the windows, take in the moments, even the heavy ones, sit with them, don’t bury them, allow yourselves to feel all that they bring, and take steps forwards to the big world beyond them….

I love you, Mama, xxxx

This post is part of ARTIFACT MOTHERHOOD – a project shared with other female artists who are documenting our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words.

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,

Kirsty xx
