Chicago Child and Family Photographer : Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to you my blog friends.  I’m settled in today – woke up to the smell of homemade pancakes, syrup and shouts of glee from my little ones that I was finally awake and they could finally give me their mom’s day gifts.  I am so lucky – being greeted with a bounty of hand crafted cards in all sorts of art mediums (crayons and markers are always the preferred choice) and a beautiful bookmark to help me along as I finish up Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.

What would Mother’s Day be without some reminders of the day.  These are some of my favorite mom moments captured in mid spring/early summer 2008 – I came across them while doing a bit of research into my own work for a very special little project going on behind the scenes here. 

Enjoy your mom’s day treats from your little ones – goodness knows they don’t stay little and hugg-y kiss-y very long (that’s why photos like are extra special!).

    Lovely mommy connections, Mare. As my older children move on (and out) these moments with my littlest become so much more important. How I wish I’d listened when people told me I’d forget if I didn’t have something concrete to remember these moments by…
