Photostory Friday~ A Mother's Love


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


Awhile back I featured some photos I took of a Senior boy. That photo shoot meant a lot to me in many ways. Not only did I get the chance to see my vision come to light, I was able to capture these special photos for my good friend. Kim is someone that I admire greatly. She is a wonderful person, mother, and friend. Years ago, she stepped up and provided me with unconditional support when I needed it most. I will be forever grateful for our friendship.

Taking photos of her with her son was a joy. While editing these, I could not wipe the smile off my face. We are relatively the same age, so it is a real hoot for me that she has a child in his Senior year. It's okay though....she also has a child that is a year younger than Sugar Bear.....and 5 more in between.

During the photo shoot we had to get the uncomfortableness out of the way... and it led to giggles....

and laughs......

Which finally led to natural smiles.

Then they were at ease, and I could capture the more serious side of their relationship.

And no matter how big they get.....they are still our babies!

I wanted to be the first! Oh well. These are awesome pics and I totally agree with what you said about Kim...she is a true friend, unconditionally. We are lucky to have her in our lives. But we wouldn't want it to go to her head. :) See ya at work. -Heather

Okay, I am a sappy mom which children who have graduated and these photos did make me tear up. Teenages usually have such a hard time with photos with their parents as is evident in that first shot. But, you must be amazing because the shots you captured were exceptional. You did capture this woman's spirit! And her son really stepped up to the plate didn't he! He will cherish these pictures also!
