The Best Mother’s Day Gift

As I go through pictures of my kids, I’m grateful to have so many, but can’t help but wonder if they will ever remember me as a young person, as I’m in almost none of them!  I cherish my childhood photos with my young parents and grandparents.  I want my kids to have that too.  For Mother’s Day, I told Daddy I just want photos of me with my kids.  I’ve asked in the past, and it’s a big hassle corralling the kids for a shoot, but Daddy made it happen!

Daddy has an artist’s eye, and creates great composition.  I left posing and stylizing to him.

At the end of the shoot, I had him do some documentary shots, which are more my thing.  That’s when we got to be ourselves. :)
