I love this photo for the details. Christine still has the marker on her hand from a race she ran earlier that morning. And her son, who is now halfway through elementary school, doesn’t jump in her lap so much anymore.
There are so many things a photo can tell you, more than just physical documentation. Mood and circumstance and what your life was about. Moments that are heartbreaking in their ordinariness, thousands of them passing by every day.
This month was about celebrating Moms who choose to exist in the family photos, who know that it’s important to show up in the family photo album. So the next time you have family photos done, proudly step in front of the camera and take your spot next to the people who love you the most.
