“Mom has been the single best title I have ever had in my life. The day my daughter Caroline was born, something new in me was born. A part of me that I never knew existed. Being a Mom has brought more joy and love to my life that I ever knew was possible. There are moments when I look at my daughter and I feel like my heart might burst with love. I will never forget the first time I laid eyes on her, September 29, 2014 at 1147pm. I still catch myself getting lost in the moment whether it be me watching her play, sleep in her crib, or rocking her in the early hours of the morning when the entire world is still. It’s in those moments I know God has a greater meaning for me, I was meant to be Caroline’s Mom. I feel blessed and thankful that she chose me. Life will never be the same and I will be forever grateful!”
~Anderson, mom to Caroline

Oh, how this sweet baby boy at just 12 days new has melted my heart…Still one of my favorite newborn sessions to date. (I think it’s partly because I love his mama’s hair!)

The statement that ‘motherhood is a choice you make everyday to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own’ could not ring more true. Having Levi has changed my world in a thousand different ways, but most importantly, it has taught me to be selfless and to give my all for him, to him, each and every day that we are together. Just seeing a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eye, or hearing his insanely cut giggle (or cry!), makes me fall in love with him more and more each day. I could never have imagined what motherhood was going to be like, but I’m sure glad I was given the opportunity to be a Mother to my little Levi

    Christy Johnson - That’s so nice of you to say, thank you Linda!

“I never knew that I wasn’t really alive until my first son was born. I was just a walking shell of a person until May 24th, 2012 at 10:12 am. My heart began to beat that very moment. Life was breathed into me as this tiny human was taking in his first breath outside of the home I had given him for 10 cozy months. The world was colored in different shades from that day on.

On March 10th, 2014 the rhythm of my heart was finally in sync when my second son was born. I delivered him myself at 5:50 pm and he completed my life’s purpose.

Motherhood created a new person in me. It made me see life from a different perspective. Things that once mattered no longer were a priority – the thrills that I used to seek were now replaced by the sounds of my children laughing and their happiness was and is all I need to chase.

Motherhood can bring you to your knees. You look forward to each passing day, as a new sunrise can bring promises of such joy but each sunset is a day closer to them growing up and being their own person.

I look back and miss those tiny babies they once were but I live for each minute with the little people they are now. I have never laughed and cried so much in my life. Their adoring eyes and endless giggles – their ready smiles and treasured hugs… Becoming a mother and raising the best of you is absolutely priceless.

You are the most vulnerable, weakest person when it comes to your love for them. But the strongest, super-human when it comes to protecting that love you have for them.

My children know the lyrics to my hearts song. And together, it is the most beautiful melody. I couldn’t thank them enough for awakening my soul and giving me a life and love that I never thought was possible.”
~Brynn, mother to Brayden and Liam
