Nine months in the making - part 6

Nearly four months have past and life has become a 'before' and 'after' her arrival. This is how I felt and it's probably how Haythem and Shahy now feel.

We met up for picnic on Anzac Day and it was lovely to see little Haya. My family came along as well and my daughter introduced Haya to the playground :D.
Children definitely change our lives in more ways than one; rest is minimal, worries are many, but the happiness they bring overshadows all of the above.

A mother's love

The weather has been gorgeous this Easter break and I was very lucky to do a mother and daughter shoot, just in time for mother's day coming up.

My little sister and her daughter are so much alike myself and my daughter, and we can relate in a lot of things. Seeing my little niece grow up has been an amazing journey, that I'm now reliving through my own daughter. Our relationships, mothers and daughters, remind me of a quote from the Louis CK show, which goes something like this:

"Because of these children, our love travels through time. We love other people more, because of how much we love them. They give value to our lives that didn't exist before."
