Memories of Motherhood, Michelle Ma Belle Photography
When living in the squall of motherhood, we aren't able appreciate all the moments that we will one day long to experience again. And if we are able to enjoy some of those special moments and capture those memories, we are rarely IN those photos.
There are reasons for this, of course; some are simply logistical and others are just plain silly. Yes, silly. I can say that because I’m guilty of the same excuses.
“I look awful”, being one of them.
“The camera adds 10 lbs.”, is another.
“They are way cuter than I am anyway”.
Fair enough, they probably are, but still not an acceptable excuse.
You Are Beautiful
You see, just as much as you will one day long to hold your babies in your arms again, they will long to be in them. They will want to hold on to those memories just as much as you do. They will want those photographs to INCLUDE you. They won’t care if your hair needed a dye job or if your pants were a bit tighter than they were the year before; they will only see you, your love for them, and their love for you. You’re the most beautiful woman in the world to them.
Mothering through every season
Springtime is quite popular for “mommy & me” photos but seeing as motherhood is a 24/7-365-days-a-year job it deserves to be celebrated and documented during every season. Memories are made all year long and most often, they happen right in the home. In-home lifestyle portrait sessions are perfect for documenting authentic memories of motherhood and they can be booked year-round! If Mom is more of the outdoorsy-type, plan some family portraits at her favourite hiking trail or camping spot. Yes, we can travel there and we would love to!
Generations of Memories
What you do with those photos is just as important, if not more important, than taking the photo itself. Those memories need to be printed, displayed, enjoyed on a daily basis. We offer stunning fine art print, wall art displays, and heirloom products that can be passed along to the generation to come. Not sure what to do with your photos?
