I've been thinking a lot about new mothers lately, doing a lot of newborn photos, and enjoying (vicariously) some of those beautiful moments of being a mother for the first time. It really is something that no one can describe to you or you can experience before the moment it happens to you. It's a miracle - an absolute miracle! And it has some challenges... at infant stage and teenage stage... and I'm sure as my kids move into adults it will have all new challenges I have never even considered. That's why we all need to just savor these "Mommy moments!" and a favorite quote...
"The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new."
Digging through some images this week - these few iamges really represent the word "Mother" to me & those first moments with newborns. Thanks to all my clients for letting me document some of these precious moments.
