I am notoriously late.
I blame the kids, because getting them out the door is quite the undertaking, but really, I could just be better prepared.
It drives my husband k-razy!
One thing I don’t like to be late for is work.
And I actually pride myself on being just a tad bit early.
(it’s the little things people!)
Well, Tuesday night I had a session.
And I was running late.
Before heading out the door I had to stop and look up directions to where I was going.
Downtown and I don’t really get along.
I am always wanting to turn the wrong way on a one way street and inevitably end up having to take a loop around to get to my destination.
Annnnyways, after punching in the address to my trusted iphone (that blue dot always gets me to my destination! oh how I rely on it!) I kissed my babies.
Hopped in the van.
And began to back out of our garage.
THUMP. THUMP. THUMP.
Uh oh…I know that sound….
Sure enough the back tire was COMPLETLY FLAT.
Like there was no pumping it up kinda flat.
I knew my sweet client was already on her way- if not almost there….
Thankfully my dad was over watching my kiddos and offered up his car for me to use.
Anyways, I’m so glad that I made it because this is who was waiting for me:
The most beautiful ladies.
Who share a most beautiful story.
(can’t wait to share with you soon!)
They are the winners of my mother’s day contest.
And friends, can I just tell you, this session was a dream.
If you are a photographer, you know what I’m talking about.
You know those “magical sessions”
From beginning to end it felt like the heavens just opened up and all I had to do was hit the shutter.
The light was perfect.
This mama’s love for her baby was so humbling.
So real. Genuine. Natural.
Plus, tell me you don’t just want to kiss those little cheeks!
There are sooooo many that just make me smile, I am having a terrible time narrowing them down!
And here’s where I keep it real…. I was so angry (!) that in my flustered state I didn’t take a picture of my flat tire- it would have been the perfect fit for this week’s theme. I only thought of it the next morning, and my dad being the awesome dad he is had already changed the tire and put on the spare for me before he went home.
But then I remembered that I had a picture from when I got a flat tire in the fall (same tire! ugh!) so I’m cheating a bit and pulling this one from my iphone achives! 🙂
*This year I am participating in a year long Photography Challenge. Each week we will link up and share our interpretation of a different theme. Please check out the other lovely ladies playing along 🙂
