i heart faces - week 19: celebrating MOMS!

 My sister and I share a hobby - photography.  We headed to the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis on Saturday to take photos indoors while it poured rain.  The Guthrie has a very interesting room with yellow windows, which is where I took this picture.  The background is the historic Stone Arch Bridge.  My sister and I each have 3 children, so it was a little crazy, but we still had fun.  The ages of our kids are 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and 0 (well, 11 months).

My sister is an incredible mama to her three kids.  I love that she is reaching out to Zeke in this picture with her hands wide open.  He is getting close to walking and I know my sister is trying to enjoy every moment with her littlest!  Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!   

UPDATE:  I won 2nd place with this photo!  Here's what the judges wrote about my picture:

OH I LOVE this one! :) what a great capture -- very cool yellow windows :-)

sonja- i've been thinking about this shot a lot and trying to figure out what i like about it so much (besides the cool bridge and my good friend sarah as the subject)...i think it's because it's a moment i can totally relate to as a mom. it's so exciting to see your little one get ready to walk. great job capturing this shot!
