Mothers. Moms. Mommies.
I have total and complete admiration for mothers. There's just something different about the "job" of being a mother. I cannot even fathom a fraction of what it means or feels like to be a mother. Even being as career-driven and oriented as I am, I have a feeling that one day, God willing, when God blesses Adam and I with a baby that it will be something that nothing could prepare me for. And me, being the control freak, always wanting to be super prepared for everything. I just know I will probably have a hard time dealing with it all.
Just saying. :)
I had the honor of shooting a Mommy and Me playgroup today that Lisa (Elle G) referred to me. Anne invited me to their weekly playgroup to take photos of their babies that are all around a year old or so.
Omigosh, can you say PRECIOUS?! They were all so cute and energetic. I got all sweaty just chasing them around the backyard trying to capture a focused shot of them. Note to self: when you shoot babies and children... you gotta be FAST!
After spending some time with the moms, you could just feel the love in the room. It's so awesome that they have each other. To support one another and be able to understand EXACTLY what each other is going through as a new mother. I can't imagine trying to raise a baby just by myself and the fact that these moms have each other is such a blessing!
One of the moms even brought a hanbok for the babies. It was so cute!
Anne, Min-wha, Joy, Misun, and Dawn... thank you for allowing me into your playgroup for a quick moment to get some shots of your beautiful babies and giving me a glimpse into your everyday lives. Know that I have a lot of admiration for you as mothers and hope that I can come back again when the babies are older to see how much they've grown!
