Motherhood photography is devoted to the art of being a mother.
Motherhood photography is the celebration of family. Including Maternity, Newborn, and Family Photography, Motherhood Photography capture the most precious moments of family and allows you to remember each season for years to come. It immortalizes the way you and your husband look at one another as your start a family, it cherishes those first snuggles with your newborn, and celebrates your family as time grows your children into your best friends. Motherhood Photography takes some of life’s most precious moments and makes them last forever.
Growing up my mom raised me alongside flowers. My childhood days contained long hours romping throughout various garden shops, while my mother skillfully called out the name of every plant I brushed past. Looking back I now know that there was a deeper purpose behind these moments. You see, my mom took us (me and my three younger siblings) everywhere. I truly believe we were only left with a babysitter 4 times our entire childhood. My parents deeply wanted to be with us, immensely enjoyed it, and knew the importance of carefully raising children. They believed, as I do as well, that the greatest way to raise your child is to raise them by your side at all times. As children we never felt like we were a bother, unwanted, or too young to sit among the adults. In fact, we were taught at a young age how to communicate to adults, have conversations with strangers, and were exposed to difference experiences outside the norm of the ghetto of our own age groups. Having been raised by the sides of my parents, now as a 20 year old, my parents and siblings are my best friends. I am who I am because of my mother and father and you are too. Some of us in spite of our parents, while others because of our parents.
The first thing I do when I get in the car to drive somewhere is call my mom. The first thing I do when I read a new book, is talk to my dad about it over morning coffee. I don’t go to bed at night until I’ve sat and giggled with my siblings till I stayed up just a little past my desired bed time.
What does all this have to do with Motherhood Photography? Simply this: I believe in family.
I personally know how important each moment is with your children and I know how quickly each season is replaced by a new one. I know how important it is to capture your children growing up together because they truly will become some of your family’s most precious possessions.
As a mother, your life’s legacy is your children. Whether you are a stay at home mother or a working mother: the legacy you are left with is your children.
Motherhood is the most precious gift from the Lord and one of life’s most important jobs. Mothers are some of the world’s greatest world changers. (If you need further convincing, St. Augustine turned into the man that he was because his mother relentlessly prayed after and ran after his rebellious heart. He was who he was because of his mother. His mother greatly influenced the world and still continues to do so because she greatly influenced St. Augustine’s life.)
Children are potential undeveloped and it is the unique responsibility of mothers to take an active stance towards the change of their children. Just as gardeners are the ones who rearrange and dig up with purpose, thus is the pattern of the life of motherhood. One of creativity, cultivation, and care. Gardening takes the physical material of the soil that it might produce, as mothers care for the essence of their children because of the potential they know their children possess. It is the unique calling of a mother to care for the essence of her children’s God-given soul so that it might produce fruit.
As I continue in photography, it is one of my greatest desires to capture Motherhood because I believe in it’s vital role in life. I believe in the importance of family and it’s God-given purposes and blessings. In a world that no longer celebrates the hard and laborious work of Motherhood, I desire to bring to light this uniquely important season of life and the vital role Mothers have in our lives. Why? Because we are the way we turn out because of our mothers. One of life’s greatest treasures is a mother who took her job of cultivating your soul with the greatest honor and skill.
