I have had the pleasure of knowing Leslie since high school years which for me was over 10 years ago. We also got to know each other a little more while taking a class at SSCC where Leslie started her nursing school. Fast forward over 10 years later, Leslie is now a nurse and mom to this beautiful girl, Stella. It was so much fun getting to take their photos for Mother’s Day this year.
Leslie and Stella love to make crafts together. Their favorite movie to watch is “The Sandlot”. Stella can quote the whole movie. Stella likes to play dress up in Leslie’s clothes and loves to pick out outfits for her mom to try on. They also love cuddling every evening.
Stella loves to help cook, read, go shopping, and take walks with her mom. They also enjoy playing beauty shop and doing each other’s hair and makeup.
A bond between a mom and her child is incredible and it was so nice to get that front row seat into that time spent between Leslie and Stella. I am a boy mom so seeing the mother/daughter bond is so precious to me. Love the things they are able to do together, interests they are able to share, and the memories that will last a lifetime. You’re doing a great job Leslie in raising Stella. She is a happy, curious, loving, and caring little girl. She carries her mama’s heart. Hope your Mother’s Day was filled with lots of love, laughter, and special treatment. Thanks so much for letting me get these pictures for you!
