A mother is the most important lady in our life. Many of us consider the woman from whom we were borne as our mother first and foremost, and as the person with whom we share the strongest bond in our life. This connection is the beginning of a relationship that is unique from any other, and special to each and every one of us. A mother is a person who has committed her life to taking care of her children; seeing that their needs are met, inspiring and loving them unconditionally. Patient and forgiving, she is someone who is always there for them. Husbands will also cherish these qualities in their wives. For many of us, we find this caregiving quality in the woman who brought us into this world, but even still, some of us will find motherly connections in grandmothers, non-biological mothers, aunts, older sisters, teachers, and other women close to us. These women are defined by their grace and unconditional love.
Out of curiosity, I asked the guys in our office how they feel about their mothers. Eternal love was one description along with admiration of her strength, independence, and constant source of inspiration. Another likened his mother to the steadfast light that guides one through the storms of life. “She always has good intentions, no matter what, she always wants the best for me,” said John. During our conversation, us women brought up the thoughtful ways in which our mothers say I love you. Little notes in a lunchbox or a letter in your suitcase before flying abroad are some examples we shared.
In adulthood, there may be times when these connections feel distant, maybe because you live in different locations, or even across the world from each other. Ups and downs come in the natural progression of any relationship, especially so with our mothers as we continue to grow and choose new experiences. Nevertheless, the love of a mother is always with you.
So whomever your lady may be, know that her unconditional love is something to celebrate. Mother’s Day is when we express our gratitude to the mothers and wives in our lives. Common gifts to our mothers have often included flowers, dinner, and (of course) chocolates. It’s a day we set aside each year to honor our mothers, and treat them to the great comfort, or luxury, they have so lovingly given us our entire lives. I truly believe that a mother should be treated like the queen she is, and that means giving her nothing less than the absolute best.
“What is the answer to Mother’s Day?” you may be wondering. The answer is simple: A gift of Love, A gift of Meaning. Give the mother in your life the tangible gift that encapsulates the intangible, a professional photography session with me. In my sessions, I am driven by the quest to capture the essence of the relationship and the true character and personalities of each individual. I do not settle for the typical posed shots we have all seen before. It is the energetic, soulful, and whimsical qualities of the moments I photograph that set my sessions apart from others. Present your mother with a gift that is both priceless and timeless… one she can enjoy now and in the future. Whether you are shopping for your spouse or your mother, a professional family photography session with Lucille Khornak is a gift that will truly last forever.
