With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, I couldn't resist looking through some favorite mother and child images from the past. These moments are certainly one of my favorite things to capture. Especially since Moms are usually the family photographer! When you hire a pro, you get to be in-front-of-the-camera, at last.
Enjoying your children. Living in the moment with them.
Soaking up this beautiful gift we call, Motherhood.
If you missed my recent blog, I talked about how my girls are getting too big for me to carry. I think this is why I'm so drawn to images of Mothers holding their babies. If you can still physically lift your child, I will ask you to so during a session. Or, to hold one another and get super close. The connection of mother and child is beautiful to witness. I can't get enough!!
Woo...these all just get me right in the feels! Do you have a favorite picture with your mother? If the answer is no... friend, let me just encourage you to make that happen. If your Mother is on this side of Heaven, have a session with her. If you need updated ones with your own children... schedule it. And then PRINT those images. For your kids and for your daughters who will be on this same journey one day. And they'll witness all that love you had and still have for them. What a gift!
Happy Mother's Day to all the sweet Mommas out there. You are the life force and heart of the family. May you be loved and blessed every day... not just on a Sunday in May.
