I’m easing back from maternity leave after giving birth to my daughter, Emma, in March. I’ve been enjoying time with her since her debut and my husband and I have been adjusting to our new roles as parents, which has felt a bit like boot camp at times. But I really wanted to come back for Mother’s Day as it means so much more to me this year.
It will be a very bittersweet day for me. I’m looking forward to my first Mother’s Day as a mom and celebrating this gift I’ve been given. But this will also be my first Mother’s Day without my mom. She was the epitome of what unconditional love and sacrifice looks like in a mother. While each day is a void without her, I know that this Mother’s Day will be even more so.
One of the most cherished belongings I have is a handful of photographs of my mom and me from my wedding last Fall. I didn't know it at the time, but it was the last happy occasion we would have together before her health rapidly declined. Whenever I look at that photo, I am reminded of just how important it is to capture special moments in pictures. I am thankful that I have this lasting image of us to show to my daughter.
I'll be holding a special round of mini sessions honoring moms and their little ones. Come casual or fancied up. I'm keeping it simple with a white quilt, but feel free to bring along anything else you would like to help make these special pictures your own.
