I had some time today, and so I wanted to play with some digital textures on images. I really like how they turned out, and I hope you do too!
I contacted Ashley a couple of weeks ago to see if she would model some maternity tutus that I had made for a client back in January. My previous client went into labour super early so we never got a chance to do her photos, and these tutus have been waiting for a chance to shine.
Our session took place in my home studio and Ashley was so great — she had brought a few outfits to show off her belly as well as a cute idea with her jammies and stuffed elephant.
Even though it’s Mother’s Day, I feel blessed every day that I have two amazing sons who are such characters, and who make me laugh on a daily basis. They are helping to mold me into a better person, and I can’t imagine my life without them.
Here’s a shout out to all the great moms out there. To the ones that are just starting out, learning the nuances of what each little sound means; and who maybe sometimes feel like they have no idea what they are doing. To the ones who have loved and lost a child… the heartbreak is unimaginable to me, but I wish you all the strength in the world to not give up. To each and every mom, I say to you “Do your best, and you will be great.” That’s all that these little people who look up to us ask for… our best we can be on each given day. Sometimes your best might just be that you got them dressed and fed… there shouldn’t be any judging as long as you do your best.
Here’s to each and every one of you that is a mom, or love a mom…. enjoy your day!
