Apr 29, 2019

Motherhood can be beautiful, messy, exhausting, funny, and most of all worth it! With Mother’s Day in a couple weeks, I can’t think of a better time to celebrate and honor all the amazing, strong mamas out there. And so, I’m sharing 35 Photos of mothers that have inspired me and allowed me the privilege of documenting these precious, fleeting memories for them.

“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.”Maya Angelou

“The moment he wakes up from a nap.… Just a gummy mouth, no teeth, just a big smile, happy that you’re alive and you’re just looking at him. That’s probably the most magical.”Jessica Biel

“You’re always going to wonder if you’re doing things wrong, but that’s what it means to be a mom, to care so much about someone else that you just want to be as perfect as possible.”Naya Rivera

“Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There’s no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.”Gail Tsukiyama

“Birth takes a woman’s deepest fears about herself and show her that she is stronger than them.”Unknown
