Beautiful moments between mothers and their babies will be the focus of a new photography exhibition in Bendigo.
Babies In Focus is the work of Bendigo Community Health Services Young Pregnant and Parenting Program members.
Program co-ordinator Linda Robertson said the mothers were keen to exhibit their work after learning photography in a group workshop.
“Babies In Focus is a celebration of our young mums and their children,” Ms Robertson said.
“Some beautiful images of the babies and children were taken during and after the workshop.
These special moments sparked reflections and conversations from the young mums about their babies and children. There is something special in a mum’s eye when they see their child captured in a moment.”
Program member Sky Beswick experienced such a moment.
“My photo captures our world in a snapshot … there is so much love in one picture,” she said.
Another program member Taylor McLennan said the exhibition would show the value of the Young Pregnant and Parenting Program.
“It was great to see everyone participating in the photography workshop,” she said.
The City of Greater Bendigo has provided great support for the YPPP group and exhibition.
See the Babies In Focus exhibition between 9am and 4pm in The COG building at 45 Mundy Street in Bendigo from November 8 to November 16.
An official exhibition launch will be held at The COG from 10.30am on November 8.
The Young Pregnant and Parenting Program supports young people 25 years or under with pregnancy and parenting information in a fun and social environment.
