Being a mom, is the most REWARDING and Amazing thing that I could be a part of. I am so thankful for all my 5 healthy children. God has really blessed me. I love motherhood, even during the hard moment where all you want to do is scream or rip out your hair. Honestly, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Motherhood suits me.
What I didn’t realize is that when I started my photography/artist journey, I would fall in love with motherhood all over again. It helped me rekindle the moments that motherhood is all about. Those moments which we forget about during our harder times. I didn’t want to forget or push aside those special moments, since it is what motherhood is all about. Through my journey so far I have been able to:
*cherish the little things, which in turn became the best things….like the tire swing smiles or silly rainy summer days
*realize just how beautiful childhood really is, even during the hard difficult parts
*see that yes indeed, my children are definitely products of their environment….and I am PROUD of this!
*see how beautiful they are on the inside and out…. in today’s material centered world, I am glad I can nurture this to help them SHINE
*know that creativity runs in our family, but shows up different for each child
*enjoy those quite relaxing moments
*engaging and enjoying each of my children’s spirit
*share my passion of photography with them and it turn, it has become a part in our lives, something that my children really enjoy. Absolutely, no forcing here. Well, maybe my teen son needs a little incentive. 😉 **side note-you can see that my boys don’t like their pics taken as much as the girls.**
Through my experiences with my photography, I not only rediscovered the wonderful things of motherhood, I have been able to document it, share it with others, and have something special that the children do with me. Photography helped me reconnect, rekindle my love of motherhood. And I am so happy, that something that started out as nothing, turned into a family fun activity that I am able to share with my children.
