He has my Heart...

"We never know the love of the parent until we become parents ourselves." I always knew my mother loved me. She was a single mother and struggled everyday to raise my brother and I... but not until Tyler was born did I know and understand the gut wrenching unconditional love that you have for your child. A love that is so strong that it hurts. A love that rips your heart to pieces just with the thought of being separated from them. I have never experienced a love so pure and so effortless until Tyler blessed my life.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about the day he was first handed to me, the day he first smiled at me with those dimples, and the first time he said "Mama." I had an amazing life before him filled with incredible moments and memories... but after his birth it seemed as if I was born into a whole new life... a life that I couldn't imagine not living. I love you Tyler... I thank God everyday for you and...

"Watching you grow has been the delight of my life. I look at you and wonder what dreams you will dream, what mountains you will climb, what joys you will have. I know there will be tears and struggles as well, but my prayer is that you will grow into the man you are meant to be."

Since I am obsessed with stylized shoots I thought I would create one of my own, one that will capture these little moments I love so much...

"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone"
"The first woman a little boy falls in love with is his mom"

"A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest."
"Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever."
"If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden."

"There has never been, nor will there ever be, anything quite so special as the love between a mother and a son"
