I wish I’d thought of this earlier than the last two days we were at singing school. It was such an enjoyable project for me. Each relationship was different and beautiful, but a common theme that was irresistibly present was the amazing bond between hearts in Mamas and Babies. And your baby doesn’t have to be little to still be your baby. Seeing these Mamas and the love infused into the lives of their children reminded me of the sacrifice my Mama made for me and for all her children. It’s a beautiful sacrifice and adds to the loveliness of all these ladies. Those two mornings were two of the most rewarding ones I’ve spent in a long time, capturing the love and laughter, the spark in the eyes and joy of these Mamas and babies being together. Thank you to everyone who joined in!
xoxo -gThe lush brown hair and the striking red…and this baby’s smile is almost good enough to eat! ^Cecily has her Mama’s smile…and it’s just too adorable. ^
Teague HAS to be one of the most precious baby boys I know. Helpful, respectful, loves his mama and has the cutest accent. And I love the fact that he’s just so Boy, that he has a bandaid on in these photos 😉 Hey. It’s real life we want to remember.
^How gorgeous can a boy get? This little fellow’s hair had me in awe.^Usually I edit in a consistent palette. Mary was breaking the mold though. Every time I came to her photos they were speaking a more filmy grain and retro color. Maybe it’s because she has so much old-fashioned goodness and great tastes…like dressing her girls in retro clothes and coming up with the most effortlessly classy looking outfits. Anyhow, I tried to edit with my usual palette. But I just couldn’t. This subtle, underexposed brown/grey undertone simply fit. Those baby legs…oh m’lands.Molly, you rock a gorgeous Mama. I always think of a 20’s lady when I see Stephanie. She carries such elegance and grace with her wherever she goes, and she has the most lovably chubby babies. Peter is such a doll.
Talk about a Mini Me, Leah’s little baby girl has her hair, her smile, her nose and adorable personality. ^You are both beautiful, Leah. I so enjoyed seeing you!^This is the face of the pure mischievous delight of boyhood. And a pair of dimples that he got from his Mama. This boy is too,too much preciousness. Rachel, I hope you write your book with the stories of all your boys 🙂
What a little lady Miss Canon is! She has such dainty features and stunning eyes.Elizabeth and her golden blonde haired beauty of a girl. You two are simply gorgeous, Elizabeth.This baby girl could keep some EYE CONTACT! I’ve never met with such a studious baby. Her eyes almost never left me. Her mama knows how to make that smile happen like magic. She’s so sweet, Emily!Rachel brought her tiny tiny baby of not quite 3 weeks out…so of course we had to take some photos…. 🙂 Those raised eyebrows… 🙂 Precious baby boy.Beka, I don’t have words for y’all. I’m so glad I’ve been able to watch your family grow, and all of your girls become prettier and funnier and more full of personality. You’re an exceptional Mama.^ Lola Kathleen. Sheer spunk and beauty. ^^He was ALL boy. Imagination, adventure, sticks and explosions. And his mama loves every bit of him.
Courtney, the love you have and that your little girl has for you shines through like sunshine. I loved witnessing all the sweet hugs, smiles and kisses throughout the week.
!!!All these babies!!!
Kathryn and baby Claudia, you warm my heart. She’s beautiful, Kathryn.Eleanor, you are a beautiful Mama and I’m so proud of you. I knew you would be, but I love SEEING it.
