i heart faces "motherhood" – Leilani Rogers, Austin, TX Baby Photography

I am obsessed with mothers and children right now because I’ve been formulating an idea for some time now that revolves around them. Â I also had the awesome opportunity just a week ago to shoot a birth. Â And not just any birth – the birth of my niece. Â It was such an amazing experience. Â I’ll be sharing bits and pieces of photos from that over the next few weeks, but this one is special for I Heart Faces’ “Motherhood” challenge this week.


I think my sister-in-law Sarah is such an amazing mother! Â This photo is beautiful because of the tenderness she has for her children, not because I am a good photographer. Â I am so grateful that she has invited me into her home so many times over the last week in my endeavors to capture rare moments like this.
