a mother's day thought and giving back

I think about her, that mama of mine... and all the memories I have left are the ones carried by me and by those who knew and loved her. 

I desperately wish I had more photos of me and her. Her and me. Me in her arms.

But by 9am this morning, I was over caffeinated, had the most delicious croissant and had hugs and kisses from my three awesome boys. I couldn't help think of how richly blessed I feel.

I miss my mom something fierce, but the other night I had a dream that she was really, really happy. Like this kinda happy:

So let me gift you this. Let me get you in the shot with your littles. Donate to a worthy, mother-loving cause and I will come photograph a mini-session at your home, or at upcoming mini sessions at El Matador Beach the first two weekends in June.

Love hard, donate, and let me know. (offer ends at this Friday, May 16th, all donations and requests to be photographed must be submitted by noon, PST). xoxo 

Please know that I think of the all the sweet mamas, all over the world, who right now might be suffering heartache and loss... just know that from the bottom of my soul I am sending you light and love.

PS. Happy Mother's Day! 
PS. Love your flaws, your children will look past them in the years to come, what is important is the now. documented, in all it's glory.
