fine art portraiture
I have to be honest with ya’ll…I loved going back through a year’s worth of sessions to find some of my very favorite images featuring the sweetest moms. I myself am not a mom, but I do have a pretty great one and look forward to the day when I have little babes of my own. For now, I’m perfectly content being a dog mom 😉 I started thinking about how I could use this post to market, but then I decided I want to be downright real with you guys. Because there is so much beauty in being raw.
So. Dear Moms,
Thank you for raising us right. For always believing in crazy ideas. For letting us have fun, even if it entailed mud fights, rescuing stray dogs, riding ponies bareback when we weren’t suppose to be, and sprinklers on trampolines (totally safe). For helping provide us with a life that is good. So good. And for teaching us that although there are dark times throughout life, you will always have family and Jesus. Thank you for praying for us. Thank you for holding us at 1am and reassurance after a bad breakup. Thank you for bows in our hair, pretty dresses, and favorite dolls. Thank you for working hard for us, to provide for us an education, a sense of humility, manners and respect. Thank you for the years of running us from ballet to horseback riding lessons. Thank you for teaching us how to be a good wife and mother of our own someday. And how to properly prioritize a grocery list (okay, maybe that’s just my mom??) and do the dishes. All of these things may seem little at the time, but when you look back you realize how many things add up. And how much we have to thank you for.
As a thank you I would love to offer any mom’s who would like to book a Mother’s Day Session with me, or anyone who would like to gift a session to a mom, 15% off their session fee starting today – April 18th. I would love, love, love to provide you with some memories that you’re able to cherish forever!
Dedicated to my beautiful momma 🙂
