“To have a child is to have your heart forever walking around outside your body.”
In my job I have the privilege of meeting so many precious little babies. I continually find it just amazing that each one is unique – there is no other little person like them in the world…nor will there ever be. But, something else I see that continually warms my heart is the deep love and bond between this tiny little baby and his mommy and daddy. The majority of my newborn clients are first time parents. And, when I see them, they have literally only been parents for a few days. Yet, this tiny little one has already grabbed their heart and soul.
Those are the moments I strive to capture for them. That I-would-do-anything-for-you love that women didn’t even know existed until they had a child of their own. I know, in general, mom’s don’t like to be on the other end of the camera – let alone when they are still carrying baby weight, are exhausted, have swollen hands and feet etc. But, mom’s are way too hard on themselves sometimes – I don’t see any of that when I look at these pictures. Every single one of these moms is truly beautiful. I’m so glad they have chosen to forever capture these moments with their child. These are the pictures their children will look back at and find more precious than any others.
Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful Mommies out there!
