~Happy Mother's Day~

Today, is Mother's Day- a day set aside to celebrate mothers and motherhood. Most countries follow suit with the United States, declaring the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day.
However, my mother always tells me what her mother told her: "Every day should be Mother's Day..." After raising two children of my own, I definitely understand what she means!
In addition to wishing a Happy Mother's Day to all moms and moms-to-be, I would also like to extend a very special wish to my own mother, who happens to be celebrating her 84th birthday today, as well. How you ever successfully raised five of us (making it look easy and living to tell about it) will always be an amazing and mysterious feat to me! I love you.

This week's image was made during a portrait session in my studio. After photographing a small baby for a while, she needed a well deserved break. Her mom and I allowed her to remain on the backdrop for some relaxing play time. I continued to observe and photograph, going beyond the traditional portraits they requested. This image resulted as a cherished keepsake for mom; freezing a tender moment in time.
