Brave.

“Beautiful Girl…you can do hard things. You are strong. You are brave. You are worthy of love. You are worthy enough to just be yourself. You have a choice everyday…a choice to be you and to change the world, one moment at a time. You are brave. You always have been. Congratulations on eitherĀ  beginning to find… or finding that bravery in yourself…instead of searching for it somewhere else.”

“I loved you even before you were born…”

“You are braver than you believe… stronger than you think… ”

“Be strong enough to stand alone… smart enough to know when you need help… brave enough to ask for it…”

“Just because we have been giving birth from the beginning of time, does not mean that it is not one of the greatest acts of bravery there is. Birth is not normal…it is exceptional every time it happens”

“No one else will ever know the strength of my love…after all, you’re the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.”

“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do.”

“After you, I will forever wear my heart outside of myself…”

Having courage does not mean we aren’t afraid..

Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself…

Follow your dreams…they know the way.

I am brave…I am capable…I am life.

You’ll be their roll model, their first friend, their first love…

What can we do to promote world peace…go home and love your family. ~Mother Teresa

You are the butter to my bread…and the breadth to my life…

To love a person is to see all of their magic…and remind them of it when they forget…

To the world you may be one person…but to one person you may be the world.

There is a voice inside of you, that whispers all day long…

I feel that this is right for me…and know that this is wrong…

No teacher, preacher, parent, friend… Or wise man can decide…

What’s right for you… Just listen to the voice that speaks inside.

“Believe in you…be brave…and move forward.

Love.

A Mother’s love… much more to come very soon!

I super love this family! We laughed ALOT during this session…and it was fabulous!

This year has been filled with so much growth. Most of this growth has come from inside of me. As Ben and I get nearer to 40, I realize that we are very much heading in to the second half of our life. The things that are most important to us are starting to change…starting to grow…starting to go back to their more basic forms. I wanted imagery to capture this growth, this year. A walk through the Aspens with those I hold most dear….that is how I chose to document our year.
