Moms... They're the best!
Andrea and her two kiddos had a family portrait session this past Sunday, and we had a blast! Can I just say, there is nothing more mom-like than tying shoes and tucking in shirts every 5 minutes while simultaneously putting up with both fart jokes and actual farts. That is quintessential 'mom-ness' right there.
In honor of Mother's Day this coming Sunday, I wanted to make sure to share this session because it embodied so much of what I love about being a mom, and what I admire about other moms; Just having fun and being silly with your kids. Now, you and I, and every parent ever, knows it can't be like that all the time. Someone also needs to make sure they're eating well, doing their homework, going to sleep (no, you do not need a 3rd glass of water), and all the things that keep them working towards growing up to be a decent adult. But the magic times, when you can be a little goofy, and let go of responsibilities just a little bit, those are the times I really treasure as a mom because because they're few and far between.
Watching Andrea and her kids gave me all the warm fuzzy feels. It was so fun to hang out with them, and capture how great a family they are, and how great they are together.
Happy early Mother's Day to all the moms, step-moms, and maternal figures out there! And whether you're 29 or 90, go have a goofy day with your kids once in a while. You'll never regret it!
