When my little Goofy was born a little over 3 years ago, I had no local “mommy friends”, so I joined this great mom’s group in Virginia (one of the few Marylanders crashing that party!) – Mamistad.
This past Friday I got to photograph one of those first “mommy” friends, a little over a month away from having her second little girl! We had fallen out of touch, and it was so amazing to see how much “baby” ‘M’ has grown up since I last saw her (barely walking!). Mommy ‘E’ and her 3-year-old ‘M’ were just the sweetest mother-daughter pair, enjoying their special time before the new baby arrives. And unlike my son, who seemed to have no idea that his sister was on her way, ‘M’ told me all about her baby sister, who lives in mommy’s tummy and is coming in May (smart kid!). That new baby is so lucky to have such a wonderful sister, and a wonderful mommy.
Okay, on to the main event. It has been so hard narrowing down the selection to include in this post (as you can see, I did a fairly poor “narrowing” job!). There was the beautiful mother … the stunning little preschooler … the two of them together … and one very happy photographer!
