Photographer Christine Foehrkolb shared this super cute shoot she did with her daughter to celebrate her turning eight! I love what she had to say about motherhood and everything thing that goes along with nurturing an eight year old!
Christine said, “celebrating birthdays are so much more than cake, presents, and blowing out candles, especially when it’s your first born’s birthday. Eight years ago I was naively in labor, counting down the seconds to meeting my first daughter. I didn’t know what I was in for I just knew, at that moment, I wanted nothing more in the world than to be a mommy. It’s been eight years of reading, researching, crying, rocking, feeding, bathing, loving and A LOT of sleepless nights. So today I want to celebrate Carlie’s patience, smiles, and giggles because everyday that passes she helps me become an even better, more understanding mommy than I was the day before. I’m so thankful that we’ve made it 8 healthy years and here’s to hoping there are a ton more to come!
