I have said many times that I always feel so lucky doing what I do. This job definitely comes with it’s perks! Playing with adorable new little ones is definitely one of my favorite things about what I do, but there’s something else that really makes my job amazing…. I get to see real love all the time. Not just the regular ole’ I love you, but the real stuff… they say that you don’t know what real love is until you have your own child. While I have never experienced love like that, from what I see on a almost daily basis-I believe this statement is true. And to take love a step further I must tell you about what I see when a new Mommy holds her tiny baby: It’s an intense love that is so touching. I love being able to record that moment in time for that little baby FOREVER. Many times our Mommies come into the studio exhausted and the last thing on her mind is having pictures taken of herself. We almost always talk her into getting into the pictures though. The newborn stage is so fleeting and one day that Mommy can look back at the picture of her and her new baby and remember what those first days, when she gave her whole heart to her baby, felt like. And when I look at these pictures I don’t see exhausted Mommies, I see the beauty of a love that will last forever.
Does the little person in the last picture look familiar? Haha… if not, that is meAnd MY Mommy who I love very dearly. Of course, I think I have the best Mom in the world. She is always there for me when I need her the most and I don’t know what I would do without her. Living across the country from her is very hard, but the distance between us really makes me appreciate her even more. Now when I visit home or when she visits me the time we spend together is even more precious to me! Thank you Mom for being the best Mom I could ever ask for… I surely don’t deserve everything you have given me. I love you Mom so much! And I hope all the Mommies out there know that they are appreciated! Happy Mother’s Day
