This was my first fashion week as a mama. One month after having my baby girl, I was feeling well enough to go back to work if only for one, intense, week of photographing. Many of you send me messages on Instagram congratulating me for starting work so early and I'm so happy it all went so well!

I won't lie to you, it was very challenging, tiring and emotional at times. At the end of the day, my body was literally aching for her presence. I run home to hold her in my arms, to kiss her head, smell her skin and see those beautiful rosy cheeks. It was the strongest feeling I've ever felt in my life!

Before our daughter was born, my husband and I had a discussion whether I'll work during this fashion week or not. We both agreed that if everything will be fine with our baby girl and I'll be fit enough, he'll look after her so I can do what I love the most and what makes me happy, photographing. Even though it was quite tiring (especially the part of me needing to go back home to express milk as my breasts were hurting so much from being full, I believe it's called "engorgement"), the whole experience was extremely empowering, encouraging me to continue working. Afterall, I knew things will get back to much slower pace once fashion week was over and I will have all the time in the world to be with my daughter ... until the next fashion week that is, in about three weeks. This time however, I'll make sure to get myself a manual breast pump to make my life much easier :)

I hope you'll like this small selection of some of my favourite photos I took. xxx
