A Mother's Day Session with Caitlin Nalder Photography
Posted by Devin & Tara
Tara and I lead busy lives filled with various activities, but first and foremost we are mothers. Packing lunches, getting kids off to school, washing laundry, helping kids with homework and school projects, drying laundry, house cleaning, grocery shopping, folding laundry, kissing owies, reading stories, putting dinner on the table (and oh did I mention laundry?!!) are the things that fill up most of our time. We are usually hurried, things are often hectic, and sometimes the noise and craziness make us feel like we want to run for the hills BUT... we also recognize what a sweet and precious time this is in our lives. There is magic in each of the little moments we spend giggling with our babies and squeezing them tight. Having a child call you their "princess" or ask you to give them their 20th goodnight kiss are things that will not last and that we want to cherish and remember forever.
Our very good friend Caitlin Nalder of Caitlin Nalder Photography was recently offering mini-photo sessions for Mother's Day and we thought this was a great opportunity to document this time in our lives. Caitlin is an AMAZING photgrapher. She brings warmth and light to her photos, while capturing candid moments beautifully. Tara and I both describe her work as having a particular "glow." You will notice her photos here and there on some of our blog posts as she will occasionally be snapping shots for us. If you are looking for a photographer in our neck of the woods, we highly recommend her.
We love, love that our kiddos are such good buddies!
Neela in her usual position: surrounded by boys!
We had to end with a photo showing some of the "realities" of motherhood, lol! It's not always sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows! Here I am scolding Cash after he whacked poor Kade with a switch he found by the tree. Over lunch later that day the kids were discussing the "event" and we discovered Cash was trying to hit his brother and Kade was caught in the crossfire. Is it possible we will even want to remember these moments? :)
