Babies







Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite baby images. I love to photograph newborns. I hope to be able to capture the moments of many more newborns to come. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

A friend of mine and I were talking yesterday about babies. About how we wish we could have another one, but yet didn't. We both decided we were happy with having two children. A boy and a girl to each of us. But I have to admit, sometimes I feel sad that I am "done." You know, people ask you, "are you going to have any more?" and you say, "No way, I am done!" What a ridiculous thing to say. I'm done. Done being a mother? I think not. You never stop being a mother. I don't think there is any higher calling on this earth, than that of a mother. I think a mother is the closest thing to God's heart that we will ever see on this earth.

When a mother holds her newborn child for the first time, it's like, well . . . .magic. There is a bond that is created that will endure the test of time. Nothing can come between a mother and her love for child. Nothing. It's an overwhelming task at times, but so awesome. I mean, you get to help shape and form the mind and personality of another human being. What an incredible responsibilty. We who are mothers should be humbled to think that God trusted us enough to raise any of His precious children while we are on this earth. What an amazing thought.

Thank you Father God, for sharing these two precious angels of Yours with me. If only for a season, You have blessed my life with their presence, their smile, their joy, their person. Thank you so very much. Words are not enough to express how much they mean to me. I pray that You will help me do my very best at raising them to be Godly people, who know You, who will be known by You, and known as Yours.

Amen.
