Boston Woman Takes Amazing Free Extraordinary Pictures For Special Mother’s Day Project
Mother's Day is this Sunday. I know, it's really early this year!
I came across this story from nbcboston.com about a photographer who normally does weddings and takes amazing pictures of children. Janelle Carmela Photography is based out of Medford, MA and on her Facebook page, she shared an experience that she had as a Mother that you never would have guessed.
Janelle had trouble conceiving. She would see a Mother with her children and get so sad about what her and her husband were going through. She and her husband kept trying to conceive, but it didn't happen for a very long time. Janelle had friends who seemingly got pregnant without any trouble at all. Although she was happy for her friends, she was really sad for her own painful circumstance.
This year, Janelle came up with an idea to take photographs of women who have experienced similar trouble for free for a special Mother's Day project. When she created the post on Facebook, over 50 women signed up!
There are so many stories of women who wanted to be mothers, but because of circumstances beyond their control, they could not have them. I know of at least a couple women who had to give up their baby because they got pregnant as teenagers and their parents made them do it. For me, I really wanted a bunch of kids running around the house. I do, however, have one beautiful biological son and 3 incredible step-children. I have a bit of guilt that I never had a sibling for my biological son. He grew up an only child and that still makes me a little sad. I do feel blessed though and certainly thankful for all of them! Even when they don't put the dishes in the dishwasher.
