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

  Yes, it's April. Yes, we are still stuck inside. All of us. Almost all of the time. It isn't the worst, we do get out some. But there's no denying it, out there is still cold and gray and snowy and muddy. I love all four of you, very, very much. But please, Spring, please show up soon.

  you had already found most of the eggs at this point.  so i didn't think you would mind humoring your mama for a moment.  it's true i pulled you away from the real hunt in order to get a shot of this tree.  and i am not ashamed to admit that i stretched the truth just a tad in order to get you still for a moment.  there most certainly could have been an egg in that tree.   Photo by Heather Robinson Photography Blog :: Facebook
