There are few things as close to my heart as the relationship between a mother an child. So it seemed an appropriate weekend to share some mama/baby pics. I took these a few weeks ago hoping to capture more of the everyday moments of being a mom, playing, reading, snuggling rather than a posed portrait look. It was fun seeing the bond between them. I've known Laura since she had a irresistibly cute speech impediment and would fight to join her big sister and I when we had sleepovers, and now she is one of my very best friends. As for the little one, the cheeks and the eyes alone melt me. They are a duo very dear to my heart.
