On October 18th, my daughter was born and I became the mother of three children. Hundreds of miles away, on the same day, another baby girl was born and another woman added the third child to her family. We were complete strangers at that time, but our love of photography and family brought us together. We started to have a conversation about motherhood with images, because we tell stories with our cameras. Since some tales are so similar, and some are not, we decided to collaborate and share a photo a week from a normal day as a mother to three.

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”

― Mary Jean Irion

  You were actually trying to get me to pay you to be in my photos. To which I replied, if you don't want me to photograph you, I understand and I'll stop, though it will be hard. Because most parents love to photograph their children, not just crazy ones like your mom. But I get it, if it is too much, I'll stop and give you some space. You then said it was okay for me to take your picture, no charge. You don't really mind. Silently I rejoiced, because I would be so sad to miss capturing images like this one, where I can still see your baby face hiding in your big girl face.

  if i had to venture a guess, i would say that you spend about 92% of your time doting over her.  you are always carrying her around, feeding her, playing with her, being a little mommy to her.  and then there is the 8% where you are delighting in pushing her buttons and hearing her scream.  i think you are rad big sister.   Photo by Heather Robinson Photography Blog :: Facebook
