A little over five years ago, I found myself expecting our first little bundle of joy. I had just moved 1200 miles from home and had started a new job, so I didn’t have a very big friend network. So, naturally, I went online. Before long, I found an online birth club of other moms all expecting babies that December. And that is how I met my “December Mamas” There are about 20 of us and we have bonded and raised our children together through the computer for the past 5 years.
I don’t know where I’d be without these ladies. They are more than a great parenting resource, they are truly my friends. And even though we are spread across the country and are very diverse – we are all mothers and the bonds are real.
So, imagine how excited I was when I had the opportunity to meet one of my December Moms in person! Very excited.
I was lucky to be able to take pictures of her beautiful family and lucky to spend an evening with her and her sister’s family as well. We had a great time shooting and I loved how laid back the whole clan was. I can’t wait till we get to hang out again. 🙂
