The things we do for our children…
As a Newborn Photographer I interact with a lot of Mommies. As I get to know these women it amazes me the things they do for their children. Women are like rubber bands I’ve decided. A woman can stretch herself to her very limits and maintain her strength. And a mother can be stretched really far, even past the intended limits before there is any danger in snapping. And like a rubber band woman have this unbelievable ability to do it again, and again, and again. For years they can stretch themselves before they might become brittle and frail. And the best quality… elasticity. Woman can rejuvenate once they have have pushed themselves to that “thin point” and become whole and lithe once again.
Kade’s mom is a wonderful example. Here she is in the early stages of motherhood. With three little children. She contacted me last month about newborn pictures for her newest little son. She wanted to come from Vancouver, WA. This wonderful mother was willing to stretch, driving a great distance to get beautiful pictures of her son.
That is the action of a mother who is willing to stretch for a good purpose. She went the extra mile. About 140 miles worth to be precise.
And it was my privilege and honor to create pictures like this for her!
