Mother's Day is a very special day this year, as it also happens to fall on my birthday. I am sure this also makes my husband happy, as he only has to plan one celebration instead of two. He gets off easy every few years when this happens.
As a mother, I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I have an amazing two year old munchkin, who I get to spend every day with, and a sweet baby girl on the way. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to spend my days raising my babies, while working during naptime, evenings, and weekends to help support our family with my photography. I have the best of both worlds, in my opinion, a working mom and a stay-at-home mom.
Because I specialize in newborn and child photography, I also get to meet so many wonderful moms! I hear wild birth stories, swap tips and advice, and learn about each family from the perspective of both brand new and seasoned moms. I have met moms with all different beliefs and backgrounds. I learn from each one, and love talking to them as I capture memories they will get to keep for a lifetime.
I have kind of made it a little tradition to look back over my year of sessions and pull out one photo of each mom I had the opportunity to photograph. Not every mom steps in front of the camera, but for those that do, I pick my favorite moment to share each Mother's Day. So here are the 45 moms who shared their beauty with me this past year.
I have enjoyed meeting each and every one of you, and your families. As I looked back, I spent a bit of time reviewing each session while I found your photos. I had some little chuckles to myself as I remembered some of the hilarious moments, and some smiles as I recalled the warm ones. I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day, and get a break to reflect on your own mom-journey. It's a wild ride, but worth the trip!
