Still a Mother...

The one thing I am totally in love with is photographing moms with their children. It's a fierce love. It's a tired love. It's a protective and special bond that mothers have with their children and you can see it in their eyes. We are the ones to wake up at night to hold the toddler who just had a nightmare, to change the sheets for the second time, to cuddle up in bed with them. We get up for the 3rd, 4th, 5th time when we are totally exhausted and our eyes won't open anymore. We are the ones who find the lost shoe, sweep up the cheerios, wipe the tears, teach them how to count, and hold the hand of a child who has magically seemed to turn into a preschooler before our eyes.
