There's nothing that compares to the moment you become a mom. Those tiny little fingers, that baby smell, it's all consuming.
Having a child is an incredibly exciting time in your life whether it’s your first, your second, or even your fifth.
Every birth story is different and every mom goes back to relive it and talk about it with their friends and even complete strangers. It's our super power, giving birth to these amazing little humans.
Those first few days felt like the longest of my life. But before I knew it my oldest was in Kindergarten with a little brother not far behind her. It’s funny how when they’re this small we can’t imagine them not fitting in the palms of our hands.
We don’t think we will ever forget how tiny their hands and feet are. But we do. As hard as we try, there is nothing we can do to stop the inevitable. Nor will we be able to remember every detail.
I don’t know how many photos I’ve looked back on of my children and I just don’t remember them being that small--and it wasn’t sooo long ago! Even at one year old, it's hard to remember a time without them there or how they looked and acted just 6 months earlier!
Which is why I believe newborn photography and portraits with your family is so important.
Without photographs I would forget the way my son looked when he use to curl up in the tiniest ball. Or how small my daughter looked against her dad’s chest. One day, I’ll never be able to imagine them as anything but 5 or 10 or 15. As mothers, photography is a gift we give our self. So that years from now when our children have children of their own we can look back through these photographs together and remember what it was like when our babies were that little and all those happy times and smiles.
And one day, those photos, those albums will carry on to our own children’s homes, so they can remember how little they were, how young we were and ultimately how much they were loved.
