Wow can you believe another year has started. With that comes all sorts of special days. Back in Canada where I grew up we had to wait until May to celebrate with our gorgeous and awesome mommies. Here in the UK we get to do it a bit sooner. After living here for so many years I still forget which day it is and always have to google (what did we do before google!? I'd seriously be lost these days without it!) So today just as I was about to release my dates for my sessions I figured I better check when Mother's Day is. Google tells me it is 6 weeks and 6 days from today on the 6th of March, (I hope that is not a bad sign with all them 6's) So it's the day after my birthday. I should be able to remember that. This should also be easy for my hubby to remember, right?
I am super excited to be holding these special sessions this year. Although it may bring a tear to my eye thinking of my own mom being so many miles and an ocean away the thought of photographing moms and their children puts a massive smile on my face. Life is ever so short sometimes and I have just been recently reminded by a good friend how cruel and fleeting life can be. Photos are the most amazing gift to be passed through the generations. The bond between a mother and child is like no other. If you are anything like me it has been many years since you have had a professional photo of you and your mom or your children. Mine was at my wedding in 2010. When was yours? If my mom wasn't so far away we would be getting more photos done. I want these to pass on to my kids and grandkids and beyond. This summer when I go to Canada this is on my 'to do' list! It doesn't matter if your littles are young or old your children will remember and treasure these photos with you.
If you don't have any children how about gifting a session to your own mom? Or to your wife? These sessions are not just for moms who have little kids. You could be my age, bring YOUR mom!
