I had given my mom about 3-4 sneak-peek photos right around after our session, and she always told me that there is no rush on her pictures. Work and "paid clients" come first, so I have been putting off working on her photos. Now in the middle of a SUPER busy wedding season on top of another hectic holiday season for family photos, I am finally working on her pictures and blogging them.
My mother is one of the most resilient women I know, and I love her more than words can ever describe. Two reasons that I have probably delayed on blogging her pictures is that one, I really don't know how to write this blog post. There are no words to describe how amazing my mother is. I always say that I will do this for her around Christmas, her birthday (which is Valentine's Day) or on Mother's Day, but here I am, of all the days, I picked November 15th. There is no special holiday on this day aside maybe from it being a Happy America Recycles Day (who gets to make up these holidays?). Second reason that I may have not blogged the photos in the last three years is that maybe I always told myself that I will work on her photos and "Photoshop" them like crazy so she looks so much younger. But why do that? My mom is beautiful just the way she is! There are no "crazy Photoshopping" done on these photos aside from my basic color-correcting edits. Meet my mom just the way she was three years ago, and still the way she is now. Her heart for the Lord is pure and inspiring. She gives praises and glory to God for all things small and big. My mom's faith is a great testimony to how a Christian should live his/her life. I love her, and I am proud to be her daughter!
Mom, enjoy!! I love you :)
