Can you believe it’s almost Mother’s Day?! I don’t know about you, but I feel like April just FLEW by! It’s probably because I was so busy with my Bluebonnets sessions – which, by the way, I can’t wait to blog those soon – they were so gorgeous this year! But today, I wanted to focus on all the mamas out there. As a mother, I love this time of year because I get pampered by my kids. As a daughter, I get to pamper my own mama. And as a photographer, I have to say that I just love seeing my newsfeed fill up with images of my mama clients and their kiddos. There’s something just so special about having a day when we can recognize all the work that mothers do behind-the-scenes. And that includes delivery days, too.
The day a mother gives birth to her newborn baby and the days that follow are always such a magical time.
As exhausted as you may be, seeing your baby for the first time and caring for that little being that you still can’t believe came from your belly is just the most amazing experience! It’s a time in a mother’s life that is simply wonderful. Sadly, it goes by so incredibly fast that it ends up being a blur for many mothers. These are the reasons why I love capturing births and Fresh 48 sessions. I get to freeze time for these mamas so that they can look back at their images and remember all those memorable moments of motherhood.
Today I’d like to share some of these moments that I’ve had the joy of capturing over the past year. Moments that go down as the most memorable ones for my mama clients, their babies, and their families. If you’re a mama yourself, I hope these images remind you of your own most memorable moments of motherhood. And if you’re not a mama, I hope they inspire you to love on a mother or mother figure in your life this week. Because life is just too short and every mother deserves to feel loved.
