If you’ve been around me for 10 minutes when I talk about family photography, you know I beat the drum pretty hard about parents being in pictures with their kids.  My kids don’t care if I don’t look like I did when I was 25, if my hair is a mess or I have a few extra pounds on me.  They care about ME being with THEM. I can’t even tell you how much I value the pictures of us together.

On Mother’s Day, after eating a wonderful dinner, we ran to the fields for 20 minutes of light.  All I wanted was a few simple portraits of me with each kid and all of us together.  My sweet sister-in-law shot these portraits for me which I LOVE.  So worth the crazy drive over.

There’s no gift like the gift of being a mama.
