Photos are an important part of motherhood…
Even though motherhood comes with a lot of difficult trials, it is such an amazing time in your life. It is a time of celebration and a time of struggle. Preparing to meet your little bundle of joy to seeing them off into adulthood. It’s a time where you become strong – stronger than you ever thought you could possibly be. And during this time, you create a bond with your child that will continue throughout your entire lives.
There are very few women who actually feel like they are beautiful and want their picture taken. It’s so easy for us to get caught up in not feeling thin enough, or pretty enough, or all of the other excuses we make that we believe why we aren’t enough. However, the miracle of motherhood is a beautiful thing despite our fears of imperfection. Swollen feet, stretch marks, sleepless nights, messy mom hair, sickness and vomit, tantrums, and all the other not so glamour parts of motherhood – it’s what makes your journey unique.
“The best things in life are the people you love, the places you go, and the memories you make.”
Motherhood has always been one of my favorite things to photograph. There are so many reasons we need to have our picture taken with our babies. Our children grow and change daily, and with the desire and need to preserve today, photos must be taken. Laughter, snuggles, and those sweet kisses, oh how I wish they lasted forever. The relationship and connection with our children is ever evolving and changing. Motherhood is both the hardest and most rewarding thing on the planet. Every year brings new firsts and new lasts. Babies hit milestones and grow to be independent little people.
You are beautiful, and deserve to take time to celebrate these amazing moments in your life. These photos will be a gift to pass down to your child as an heirloom of your memories with them. Look back through your life, smiling, laughing. loving, there is no greater treasure. So, here’s to you this Mother’s Day Mama…may you find strength in your journey. And always remember, You were made to be that little ones guiding light.
