Before I became a mother, I don't think I truly appreciated motherhood. There's no way I possibly could have. I don't think you can understand the bond, sacrifice, pain, love, emotion and exhaustion that goes into it, especially in those first few years. In my new roll as a newborn and family photographer, I've been privileged enough to be invited into people's home and experience this bond in the early days - its such a powerful connection to capture and is what made me fall in love with photography in the first place.
Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers out there.
