My daughters are my world. They are the lights in my life that make everything worth living for. If you’re a mom, you probably feel like me… you want your children to look up to you and admire you. I’m so lucky that my daughters not only admire me for being their mom, but they’re also the biggest fans of my photography.
It’s not always easy being a mom and trying to have a successful career, but I feel so blessed that my daughters look up to me and think I’m amazing for doing both. I love spending time with them, and I also love spending time in my studio. My hope is that they’ll always see me as a role model and be proud of everything I’ve accomplished.
Mother’s Day is almost here, and in honor of it, I’d love it if you’d stop by my Facebook or Instagram page and share some of your favorite memories with your mom under my post about this blog. If you’re lucky enough to still have your mom around, don’t forget to thank her for all the ways she has helped you grow into the person you are today. After all, mothers (like my own mom) are some of the most important and influential people in our lives. They’re our first teachers, our biggest fans, and the ones who always have our backs!
Moms are Real Life Superheroes.
We all know that mothers are superheroes, but let’s face it… sometimes we don’t stop to truly appreciate all of the amazing things they do for us.
From the moment we’re born, our moms are who we can count on for love, support, and guidance. Mothers play an important role in our lives by teaching us how to be responsible, caring adults.
I know that my own mom worked hard to ensure that our family was happy and healthy. From making sure we were fed to taking care of us when we were sick, she worked tirelessly to keep our family together. She did all of this while also being the emotional backbone of the family. To this day, she’s always provided a listening ear, support during tough times, and has always been there with a hug. Thank you, Mom!
The Challenges of Being a Mom in 2022
These days, moms are often the breadwinners in their families too. In fact, according to a study by the Pew Research Center, moms are the primary or sole breadwinner in 40% of American families with children. This number is up from just 11% in 1960.
These moms face a number of unique challenges. They often have to juggle work and family responsibilities, which can be difficult to manage. Trying to find a balance between their roles as mothers and as professionals is not easy. Many feel like they are neglecting one or the other, and this can lead to a lot of guilt and stress. Despite these challenges, though, they’re still role models for their children and provide an important source of income for their families.
I know firsthand that working moms tend to put their children’s needs before their own, and often go without self-care time. It can be really hard to find time to relax and recharge when there are so many things going on. Still, we should always make sure to take care of ourselves – because if we don’t, we won’t be able to take care of others. This means setting aside “me time”, even if it’s just 10-15 minutes every day to do something relaxing like reading, taking a bath, or working on a hobby.
Want to gift the best Mother’s Day gifts to a special mom?
Moms are some of the busiest people on the planet. They rarely get a chance to treat themselves, and even less of a chance to feel sexy and beautiful. A photoshoot is the perfect way for a mom to get some much-needed pampering.
She can relax in a comfortable setting while professional hair and makeup artists take care of her. Then, she can step in front of the camera and let go of all her inhibitions. The end result will be a set of beautiful, sexy photos that she can keep for herself or give as a gift to her husband or boyfriend.
Whether you want to celebrate the mother of your children or you know a mom who could use a little time to herself, one of the best Mother’s Day gifts you can give her is some pampering! This is why my boudoir, maternity boudoir, and portrait photography sessions are such popular Mother’s Day gifts year after year.
If you’re interested in gifting a session to a special woman, contact me today. I offer gift cards for all of my packages. I’d love to help you make this Mother’s Day her most incredible yet!
