Larianne's Mother's Day Session // Family Portraits at Binney Park

May 15, 2017  •  1 Comment

I'd like to think that when it comes to special holidays, I'm very easy to please. Take me somewhere. Give me a nice experience. Buy me chocolate covered fruits. Take me out to dinner. Give me a portrait session. Just one of those things would make a very happy person :)

This year for Mother's Day, we did a lot. Roody went all out and I've never felt more special. Not only did he buy me 3 beautiful jewelry pieces that I will cherish forever, but we also got a chance to take some gorgeous photos in the park. We would have done them on Mother's Day, but we went out to dinner with our families and knew the boys wouldn't be able to handle a portrait session afterwards.

I'm so blessed to be a mother of two. I posted this on social media, but I'll talk about it here as well. I never wanted to be a mother so young. When I got married, the plan was to have children at age 30. Seriously. Then I got pregnant December 2012, lost the baby and my whole world changed. All of  a sudden, I felt something for children. I wanted a baby.

We started trying in March 2014. I miscarried again in July. I was heartbroken, but determined. Jaden, our rainbow baby, was conceived in November 2014. I became a mother in August 2015.

Jonathan was a surprise. To be honest, I wasn't ready to have another child 6 months after giving birth. I felt overwhelmed during the entire pregnancy. But when I gave birth in December 2016, that's when Jonathan & I made a connection and now I can't imagine my life without him.

So this year, I thank God for the blessing of being a mother of two. Who'd have thought that little LarJ would be chasing two children at the age of 26? That's crazy haha.

Roody has been my rock through all of this. I love him so much. He's the best baby daddy a girl could ever ask for.

Jaden didn't pay too much attention to Jonathan at first, but now he yells, "Babby!" when he sees him, gives him kisses and rubs his hair. They're so sweet together.

Jonathan laughs every time he sees Jaden, and Jaden often plots to squeeze Jonathan's feet or pull his hair. It can get a little crazy at home haha.

Being a mother has changed me so much. I feel like I look more mature, and I'm also much more goal-driven. I wake up in the morning, ready to work. I go to bed late at night because of work. Everything I do is for the benefit of my family. I no longer have a lazy bone haha.

And of course, I had to end the session with some photos of Jaden being happy. Because seeing my children happy makes me happy.
