Motherhood is a beautiful and complicated thing, isn’t it, moms? One minute, our kids are driving us crazy and we snap or raise our voice. The next we are overcome with love and we tear up just thinking of the first days of school, or graduation days and weddings. We think about how much they are going to do in their futures and all the dreams ahead of them. Yes, this might be how I’ve felt these past few weeks…maybe this is speaking to my own heart!
I’m not a perfect mom, but I sure know one thing. Down the road, after our kids are grown and leading their own lives, all of us moms will look back and remember all the good things. Their laughter that fills our homes, the little footsteps in the hallway, watching them laugh at the beach, and all their funny little conversations. That is why photographs of us WITH our kids is so important. Yes, I said WITH. Moms, I know you’re either behind your camera phone, or arranging portraits for your kids, but please, please step in front of the lens. Get professional portraits with your children…you will want a beautiful photo to look back on! Look at this stunning momma and her kids…what a gorgeous memory to treasure.
