Momma and Baby

As I reflect on this busy week - full of pictures and work and my first Mother's day - I am reminded of the most important thing for me about being a photographer. It is being able to show relationships. The love in a couple, the play between siblings, the unique connections in a family and the joy of a new life.

I have always had a strong bond with my mother and now that I have a daughter - I am experiencing a whole new kind of love. I can't wait to wake up and see her smiling face. I look forward to bath time. I refer to myself as momma. I now know what all the fuss is about.

I have a whole collection of images from clients and friends that show this special love.
Now I have my own.
Here are a few of me and baby girl. I have also re-posted some of my favorite images of mommas, their babies and the connections we all share.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you.

We love staring into momma's eyes
and we laugh when she plays.
She  knows how to make us smile

and reads the book over and over

and gives the best kisses.

She couldn't wait for us to get here

and loved us right from the start.

She taught us how to laugh
how to be confidant.
and how to snuggle.

she is our first love.
