The Tale Of Bec Parsons & Olive Celestino
Motherhood has taught me patience and understanding to a level that astounds me, says photographer Bec Parsons. One of Australia's most talented fashion photographers, Parsons first picked up a camera when she was twelve and has since shot for the likes of Harpers BAZAAR, Vogue Australia, Russh and Oyster magazine. Back in 2005, she founded her own magazine Love Want with her husband Bartolomeo Celestino. The creative couple live in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs with their now eight-month-old daughter Olive Delphine Valentine Celestino and two cats.
The most surprising thing about being a mum is how you can function with such small amounts of sleep. I just love being a mum. I have always wanted to be a mum and it's everything and more than I expected. The love you have for your child is like nothing else on this planet, I can't believe how much I love her, and it gets more and more with every day," she says.
Bec's little list of loves:
Tea and spelt toast with marmalade.
Bath time every evening with Olive, we both can't wait for that special time together.
Acupuncture; yoga; shiatsu massage.
Hugs from my husband.
Sitting in the park with my family.
The occasional dinner out with my husband.
Steak with a side of broccoli and toasted almonds at Woollahras Bistro Moncur.
