“Motherhood is exhausting and emotionally challenging — and totally worth it!!!” – that I quoted from Kelly Hampton’s article over at All Parenting.com 🙂 I’ve been a great fan of Kelly’s blog for quite a while now. She takes motherhood in a really amazing and inspiring level. Feel free to head over her site and stalk her like I did.

And speaking of how totally worth it motherhood is, today, I’m finally posting the Larson’s family session I did last June. Doresa got to know of my work from previous client-friends, too. It makes me too happy that not only am I growing my list of client friends but also having more mommy friends I can share with my own first-time experiences, too.

Doresa is one of the super mommies who does full time taking care of things that make a happy home. I absolutely salute her mommy powers! And now that they’re a growing family of 4, Doresa and John, her husband, are thrilled and in love more!

Meet the Larson Family…before 3 became 4. 🙂
