Remember this fantastic little baby? Well, he’s growing up. I love seeing these little people grow into themselves. I think one of my favorite things about photography is capturing mother/child interactions. To me there is nothing so fierce and strong and beautiful than mother love. I have loved getting to capture the evolving love this mom has for her little J. And here they are….8 months later. Aren’t they both beautiful? I didn’t photoshop the color of those eyes….that’s just they way they look when he looks up into the sky with that blue fleece on. pretty incredible. I love the movement captured in this one. This whirlwind that is mother love.
I can’t think of a greater gift for mother’s day than to somehow capture that mother love you have through images of YOU mothering. Yes, I know we’re all our best critics and, if you’re anything like me, you don’t like getting your picture taken….but, give dad the camera on mother’s day, forget the fact that he might not capture you at your most glamorous….and when you look at the pictures, don’t even critique your appearance for one second…..look beyond that……because there is nothing more beautiful than mother love. Really.
Happy Mother’s Day to Z and little J.
