A Reflection on Motherhood
“Motherhood is the most difficult job which brings you joy and happiness.
Before I gave birth I thought that I knew myself, that the borders of my
heart are limited but what a surprise was to understand that my love can be
When she was born I didn’t feel myself as a mother right after, it might sound
strange but that feeling of being a mother came to me later when I realized that
from now on my heart is beating in her chest. I understood that I can be
soft, thoughtful… She always reminds me that I can be funny and look at the
things which are happening around through the positive glass.
She is my WHY…
WHY I wake up every morning…
WHY I work so hard…
WHY I live, eat, and breathe. Every. Single. Day.
And only because she chose me as a mother I now know the sweet taste of motherhood.
So grateful to you my little one! Love you to the moon and many many times
back.” Rufina, Mother
“It was so lovely working with Rufina and her daughter, Sofi. The special bond between these two was a joy to witness and I am so grateful to have captured that for these two to be able to treasure forever. From experience, I know how quickly each season of motherhood passes. Life changes, our children change, and we change with them. That’s why capturing motherhood is so meaningful for me.
