“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” – Sophia Loren
A little celebration of Mothers and the devotion they have for their children, the love that no one can prepare you for, the endless, unselfish love which starts before we even get to see, hold and cuddle them for the first time.
Here are some of the fabulous mothers I have had the privilege to photograph (the photo above is from 2013, of me and mine is by the lovely Lisa O Dwyer).
And now a couple of photos that mean the world to me.
I rarely get my photo taken but really wanted some photos of me and my children so here are a couple of my favourites, they are a couple of years ago, soon will be time for some more – thanks so much Lisa.
I still look at these photos so often with a smile on my face – I don’t look at myself and give out about my nose ( no side profiles !!), the high hair-line !! or anything else, I just see a moment and a memory, I see the love that I find so hard to explain, the love that I feel for my children, the love that now means I cry at anything, it doesn’t even have to be sad.
Happy Mother’s Day, get in front of the camera on Sunday and make some memories !
