Today, my mom skills were in full force. Yes, I vacillate between the artist brain and the mom brain, constantly (often they mingle). You children photographers know what I’m talking about.
I spent a good part of the day with my three children at the doctor’s tending to an ear infection that my 4 year old has. Being there many times, I knew what to do, was a pillar of strength coordinating my little ones through the waiting room, cuddled with my sick one, brought 3 bags of toys to occupy them and sighed when the doctor let me know what was going on.
My children are gorgeous, I hate to brag. They spoil me. All three are visually interesting for me. For a photographer, a picky photographer at that, it is a sigh of relief and an ahhhhhh that I have a family that is delicious to watch. I know that’s how you feel about your own children.
Tonight I’m thinking of Dexter, who is sick and pulling at my mother strings. These child portraits I did a few months ago. In moments like this, when I am full of worry, I am glad to have these portraits to savor and make me smile.
