I was super excited when I first found out that I was going to be a mother. My husband and I had planned the pregnancy. I really wanted to be a mother and carry a life for 9 months. I never knew then how much my daughter was going to change my life and how much I was going to love this tiny little creature, but I instantly fell in love. No one tells you how hard it is to be a mother; the countless times you have to wake up in the middle of the night, the times that they get sick and you can't leave their sight until they feel better, or all the times they fall and hurt themselves and you feel helpless. I have cried many times, especially when my daughter was younger. She had a lot of energy more than Iwas ready to handle. She would want to climb anything and would run around nonstop. She would fall and hurt herself a lot, and I would call my mom crying about it. I hated the feeling of helplessness. My mother would give me words of encouragement and would make me feel at ease. Motherhood is about trying to control your child's environment and make sure your child is okay, but at the same time feeling like you have no control of anything. Regardless of the difficulties of motherhood I would never trade it in for anything in the world. For this Mother's Day I decided to do a little special shoot with my baby girl (she will always be my baby in my eyes) and spend a special moment together. These are the moments that last a lifetime. I hope you have a great Mother's Day!
