Freebies - Mother's Day Images #3 - Real Mothers

Look at his darling clothes and lace collar. I like the family album on the table.


The apple did not fall far from the tree here. This pioneer Mom looks tired.


Look at the huge bow in the daughter's hair and lovely lace on her dress.

Love love love this. This is new motherhood.

These two Mom's look so happy to be Moms. generations apart yet timeless.



Here are some real Mothers. Several of these pictures are of pioneer women and their children. These women spent long days alone except for their children. You can see the love they had for them in the clothes they wear, the small touch, the way they lean in to them or hold them. That universal Mom love. Where would the world be with out it?

These are beautiful. It's interesting that we mothers rarely have photos taken of us with just our children. Usually it's the whole family or the children alone. It's definitely something to bring back.

Wonderful images of a mother's love for her child. I also loved reading about your boys (men) and the call you received.

What a wonderful collection of old portraits. As a portrait photographer these images remind me of how important my job really is. These memories are recorded not only for the family but just random people to be blessed by them generations to come!
Have a great Mothers Day!
