Honoring Mom ▌Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona


This week on the I Heart Faces Photography Blog we are honoring Mother's Day! I just put my folks on a plane back home to New York this past week after spending three wonderful weeks together oohing and ahhing over my precious newborn, my cheeky two year old, and my amazingly gifted four year old. Having my parents visit is always a special reminder of how rich my own childhood was; full of trips, treasures, adventures, for they bring it all with them again when they come to visit their grandchildren. If I wasn't standing in a doorway watching my Dad read to the boys, I was sneaking around with my camera trying to get a glimpse of my Mom cuddling the baby. And if I wasn't doing either of those things I was blessed with a nap or an evening out with my husband alone. Having my parents around always makes me wish that I lived a little closer to home. Here is my favorite image of my mother snuggling her third grandson. It's a very special moment when you get to gaze upon your own Mom holding the baby you made. I think she sat in this same chair with him asleep on her shoulder for nearly the entire day before they flew home, sweet!

Aww, sweet, sweet capture!

I love watching my parents with my children, too. There is something so special in the bond that grandparents have with their grandchildren. :)

Oh my goodness Karen! I cried a little. She looks like a wonderful Grandmother! I am so thankful you could spend 3 weeks with her. I know that she treasured every moment.

He is a ontented fellow, and I have to say, it looks like Memom fell asleep, too, snuggly that sweet, sweet boy. You are a blessed lady, Karyn, and your family is blessed to have you to record these moments.
