Some of my favourite sessions are where mums ask me to photograph them with their kids. How often do you jump in a photograph with your kids? This session was a Mother’s Day gift from Tamara’s husband. A precious gift that captures her kids as they are in this moment. They clung to their mumma as I photographed them – asking to be picked up and hiding from the camera. There will come a time when they don’t need to be so close; to cling to her leg as she walks or to rest in the curve of her neck. But for now, she is their safe place.
These guys oozed love for their kids. It’s hard to explain that feeling when you become a parent isn’t it? There is something inside that clicks. Caring for a child is so much more than health, diet, cleanliness and education. Parents are their voice, their advocate, their support, their nurturer, their safety, their love.
Our arms are a safe place for comfort and they will never really know how much we love them.
In the lead up to Mother’s Day this year I was lucky enough to photograph some inspiring women who absolutely adore their babies.
These are working mums who juggle motherhood with a pinch of passion on the side. We all have something we love, whether it’s bohemian clothing, meeting people, providing people with something they need or maybe dabbling in some photography. For me, I’m passionate about all of these things!
Here’s some of these mums with their beloved little humans. To see the work their mummy magic pop over to Bella Boheme or drop into their Springwood, NSW store. 💕
