The Bethadilly 52 Week 20 – Motherhood

one of the most popular subjects i like to photograph is my family and baby girl.  and when i can get in the frame with them, it is something that i don’t to for granted.  yesterday was mother’s day, my second mother’s day.  my husband had most of the day well thought out and planned, but was also sure to ask me if there was anything special i wanted to do as well.  i said, have a picture taken of myself with our daughter.  last year on mother’s day, she was barely 3 weeks old and my husband took a photo of us together then.  this year, i wanted to do the same.  not only to capture her size on mother’s day this year, but to build a tradition of getting a photo with her each year on my special day.  week 20 of the bethadilly 52 is motherhood and i happily asked my husband to help capture a beautiful image, which he was happy to do.  through a little direction of what i was envisioning and a tad trial and error with manual mode because our outdoor light was constantly changing, he created the perfect image that truly defines motherhood to me.  it captures and reflects my true feeling of closeness and adoration for her, and those sweet chubby arms that i love to smooch.
