If I'm completely honest, I've been avoiding this post, because I'm not sure I know how to put into words my love for this Mama and her baby girl. She is my very best friend. There's no better way to say how much she means to me, other than to say just that... my VERY best friend. I think it's fair to say that as we get older, and enter different seasons of life, especially motherhood, new friendships come, some go, some friendships grow stronger, some fizzle out, it's just the way it is and that's okay. But, Lindsay and I have never fizzled, we've never lost touch, and although we may not talk each and every day, when we do we always pick up where we leave off - every single time. 'Chappy' and I met over 20 years ago, gulp... 20 years!! The thought of that much time blows my mind! We've packed a lot in to those twenty years; high school days spent together in the quad, chatting from colleges halfway across the country from each other, watching as we each marry our husbands - we've seen and done it all together. Now seems like more though, now seems like the most beautiful season of our lives, and friendship - motherhood. Trading our own childhood for the joy of watching as our littles experience theirs, and it's just the beginning.
Motherhood is a fleeting, precious, snap of the fingers, moment in time. It's here, it's exhausting, beautiful, and then poof... it's gone. A motherhood session takes that small, finite moment in time and keeps it standing still forever. They are my very favorite sessions.
