“Mum, I love you,” my 3-year-old daughter says sweetly, touching my face gently like I often touch hers. When I was pregnant with her during mother’s day four years ago, I couldn’t have known how this little thing growing inside of me could change my life. Sure, I knew I would love her – mom’s love their kids. But she’s also made me into a better person: confident, patient, focused and more empathetic. I love my kiddo to pieces, and I’m so happy I’m a mother.
I’m going into this weekend with a mission: to be photographed with my daughter and with my mum. Crazy as it may seem, I don’t have a lot of photos with either of these awesome ladies. Call it a photographer’s curse – one that’s easily remedied with a click of the shutter. It has made me happy, however, that I get to photograph so many awesome mum’s with their children.
Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all the bodacious mums I know!
