san francisco bay area newborn photographer
There are so many books, quotes, notions, and advice out there regarding Mamahood. It’s such a mysterious but weighty role many women decide to pursue. And it’s hard!! No wonder so many of us seek out wisdom when it comes to this great adventure called ‘being a mama’. The one idea that has stuck with me since reading it has been the wise words of Ann Voskamp from her blog post that a mother’s “labor and delivery doesn’t stop and you never stop having to remember to breathe”. With three kids, it rings so true for me. Gosh, even when I had only one and two, it was true. And in that chaos and mess, there is so much beauty. So much delight that it can make me teary just thinking about it.
And so, I decided to make a little tribute to my beautiful Mamas who I’ve had the honor of photographing and rubbing shoulders with in this life journey. Mamahood comes in all different forms with the common thread of love and sacrifice–and that’s pretty evident in this short. Who knows or cares about the details. Each mama’s LOVE is apparent and strong. Enjoy!
Wishing ALL women alike a wonderful Mother’s Day!
