While I was looking through my Christmas pictures this year I came to the sad realization that I was in only two pictures (out of the hundreds that were taken). It made me a bit frustrated and I had a discussion with my husband about my desire to be in pictures with my kids (and I made him promise to pick up the camera more too). I then thought about the fact that there must be other moms that want to be in the photograph with their children and that maybe they just did not have the opportunity to make that happen. Then I saw this canopy online and that gave me the push to try my hand at mini sessions. I was blessed to be able to work with 5 wonderful moms and their kids. I hope that these pictures serve as a reminder as to where they were in their journey into motherhood on Mother's Day 2015. Thank you ladies (and husbands) for allowing me to capture this time and I hope that you have a wonderful Mother's Day.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
