moms.

Yosemite Family Portrait Photographer Since my mom passed away, I think a lot about the relationship between mothers and their children.  I wonder what it is to have this deep bond with this little person who's wholly depending on you.  This little creature pops out of you and you love it. What's that like?

When I went to hawaii with my family I spent about ten days with my two nieces, and when I got home I experienced an unfamiliar sense of sadness.  I missed my nieces.  In truth, I've never missed a little person.  They're little.  It's not like I have deep heart to heart conversations with them.  I wouldn't describe myself as a kid person.  Sure I love babies but that's just because they're cute.  It was strange to say the least.

Nowadays most of my girlfriends are on their second babies.  Their families are growing, and it's incredible to watch.  It's crazy to see these women whom I've known for so long transition into these new roles as moms.  They're doing an amazing job.  And I admire them for this new outpouring of love that I see in them.

I love seeings moms with their little people. It certainly melts my heart. I'm looking forward to the day when I have some babies of my own.  It's not going to happen any time soon, but it makes me happy to imagine it in the horizon.
