“slow it down…make it stop…or else my heart is gonna pop”

when i look at all of the  pieces of me that are stitched together to make me who I am…mom is always what I want to see first.  I am thankful for that.  Even more, I am thankful to be home with my babes and to watch them grow and become…

motherhood is the ultimate balance…some of the sweetest joys in life paired up with some of the most frustrating…

but in the end…i know it goes way too fast…and all we can do is fills our hearts with love…and when we think we have reached the end of it all…we just love more…

And…there is not one baby that I meet, that I don’t instantly fall in love with…how could i not when I get to be around such little angels as these…

I just saw your photos through a link a friend posted to facebook, and wanted to tell you I love your work! I was looking through the shots of Clare and Isaiah, and they brought back sweet memories of my my own baby girl’s birth almost a year ago. I love the way you captured all those sweet little details…even down to that fresh newborn skin that is still peeling…so precious!

These are beyond gorgeous! I’m tearing up looking at them and she’s not even my baby. You have such an amazing talent and they have such beautiful children. And the song is lovely too.
