When the idea came around that my church wanted to make a “Mother’s Manual” comprised of many different articles written by the amazing mothers at our church, I loved the idea. For me, it was great to contribute as well, sharing our story of foster/adoption and our struggles with infertility. We have so many newly married couples and new mothers, that putting together this amazing manual to help new moms trying to figure out the ins and outs of motherhood is so great. As a gift, I offered to give the manual a little something extra by giving each mom a face to their name by doing the photography. As our church grows, it will be awesome for those new moms reading the articles to be able to look at a picture of the mom that contributed and make a connection with her as they share in their trials and triumphs.
Motherhood is a journey, and we need each other to encourage one another and help in times of need. I’m so excited to see the finished product. We still have 6 more families to photograph, including mine (that’s always the challenge getting my family pictures done), but for now, here are the the first 13 moms and their precious children. A few of the husbands came too, so we seized the opportunity for a family picture as well if time permitted. We did 15 minute back to back sessions, so it was quite busy, but so fun.
If you’d like to come by and check out our church, we’d love to have you.
