Shadow Shot Sunday : Mother's Day



Today is Mother's Day.  I can't help but go back to the time when my son was first born.  It doesn't seem like it was over two years ago.  How quickly it has flown by... as it has for all you in your lives too, I'm sure.  So to celebrate this day and these memories that are flooding over me today, I wanted to share a few personal photos with you.  

This first one is of me and my son when he was still in the hospital.  I love this photo so much.  I look so peaceful and full of love, so caught up in the moment that I'm not even sure if I knew our photo was being taken.  It almost looks like a painting to me.



 This first shadow shot self-portrait was taken by my husband of the two three of us, while I was pregnant with my son.


This next shadow self-porrait of me and my son was taken last September while my son was 20 months old.


This last one was taken today.  We had to stand outside and wait for the sun to peek from behind the clouds which lasted for about 6 seconds before it disappeared again.

To see more shadow shots stop by Hey Harriet for Shadow Shot Sunday.

I hope all you Mothers out there are having a wonderful Mother's Day.  I was treated to a yummy breakfast souffle, Chocolate cake, fresh coffee and a handmade card.  What more could I ask for for : )

That first photo is sooooooooo sweet. And while I'm always a fan of shadows (especially the family portrait one of the 3 of you), I must say the pic of the Mama's Day artwork is priceless :)

You are a clever girl...the family shadow shot is GORGEOUS. They are all great shots....I cannot believe Elias was ever that small. Wow. Stupid fast-moving time!!! xoxo Happy MOMMA Day. Kisses, Sada dressologyhq.blogspot.com

Ooooh!!! I loved this! You are beautiful with your baby in your arms and I loved the progression of those shadow shots - this is so cool to have - do you have them up in your home somewhere? You definitely need to! Beautiful card from your baby too, xoxo

Love this Esther...what a fun way to keep track of the years! Just think how those shadows will change in several years (my son and daughter are towering over me - lol!!)
