One year ago, I photographed my first newborn… Miss Macie. We bonded instantly and became fast friends. One year later, she is running (wobble walking) after big brother, and she is so completely different, it is hard for me to believe it is the same little baby. I want to wish my very dear friend, her mother, a VERY happy Mother’s Day. Even though you don’t have your mother here on earth to celebrate, I know she is shining her beautiful smile down on you. In case you weren’t sure, look into the sparkling eyes of your beautiful children.
Oh and just for fun… this next one is Macie a little over one year ago… see what I mean?
Happy Mother’s Day everyone. I urge you to take a sweet moment all alone, and really think about each of your children. What they once looked like, felt like, smelled like… remember how, as newborns they looked into your eyes and no matter what you looked like, they smiled with all of their heart and soul. That look… you know, the one where you are the only thing that matters. Regardless of how old they are today, remember that you created them, and helped shape them, guide them… That special look…just for you. The twinkles in their little baby eyes were just reflections of yours… Even if they cannot actually express it to you, hold onto that sensation… and have a wonderful day!
