As children, for many of us, we looked up to our mothers. We admired the things our mother did and the way she did them. Our moms may not have always realized it but they fascinated, taught, and inspired us as children and still do even today. The way mom put on her lipstick. How she always knew exact way we liked our scrambled eggs. How pretty she looked to us before she walked out the door to head to work. The way she rocked our baby sibling to sleep. The way she kisses our cheeks. What she does while she’s working at her job. How she loved and cared for us. It seems, no matter what it is our mothers do, we want to be like mom. Now grown with kids of our own, we too see our children coping mommy and wanting to be like mom. We try our very best to set a good example for them, teach them, inspire them, and love them with all our hearts. Knowing this, it fills us with so much pride and joy when our little loves notice what we do, play pretend, and like to try to be like mommy! That imitation we’ve seen with our own children, lead us to this fun idea to do a photo series of mothers and their children wanting to be like mommy with Mommy and Me Photography.
These are just a small sample of the MANY traits, lessons, and qualities these mothers impart to their children! Ultimately, we long for our children to grow up to be loving, to feel they are loved, to feel they are successful, and to feel they are happy. For us mothers, it’s heartwarming and an encouragement when we see our little ones imitate mom, and demonstrate the good things we try to show them. To all Mother’s we wish a Happy Mother’s Day!
