On October 18th, my daughter was born and I became the mother of three children. Hundreds of miles away, on the same day, another baby girl was born and another woman added the third child to her family. We were complete strangers at that time, but our love of photography and family brought us together. We started to have a conversation about motherhood with images, because we tell stories with our cameras. Since some tales are so similar, and some are not, we decided to collaborate and share a photo a week from a normal day as a mother to three.
“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”
― Mary Jean Irion
you have an on again off again kind of relationship. when you are off, it seems as if the walls are about to come crashing down around us. but when you are on, oh my are you ever on. like tonight when you gave each other sweet potato fry kisses. i mean seriously sweet.

I run a business named Click Click Love. It is like my fourth baby. I scout out light and sketch and dream my future shoots. You are good enough to oblige.
