"My body is full of life. My body is powerful. My body made me a mother."
This one is for you, mommas.
It wasn't until I was grown that I really learned to appreciate all that my mom did for me and our family. I truly believe she has some sort of superpowers... I mean, how else can she do it ALL? She works full time, comes home and makes sure the house is *literally* spotless, and always makes sure she has time to spend with family. It's incredible. I am amazed by her every single day. I may not be a mother, but I know that mine is perfect and she deserves the world.
This is for all of you mommas. Those of you who work your butts off day in and day out just take make sure your family is fed, clothed, and happy. You're killing it. Some days are hard. Others are harder. But look at your children. They are lovely, smiling, jumping, laughing, HEALTHY. All because of you. This DAY is for you. Take time for yourself to enjoy the little moments. Soak in a bath, put on a face mask, listen to your favorite song, whatever makes your heart happy.
I'm so happy that I got to captured EIGHT beautiful mothers and their kiddos at our Mother's Day Mini Sessions last month. These moments are so fleeting and I can't stress the importance of capturing them. You'll look back at these photos and wonder how they were ever so little, how their fingers and toes were so teensy, and how absolutely happy you look. Don't put photos on the backburner. These will last forever. These are your LIFE. Treasure them.
