Motherhood is many things—selflessness, compassion, devotion, tenderness, sacrifice, and the ultimate sense of love. Being that many of us are mothers, mothers-to-be, or have a desire to one day become a mother, we can all appreciate the sentiment and pure beauty of seeing motherhood in action. Witnessing the bond between a mother and her child is inspiring and truly humbling. Here, we’ve gathered 30 incredibly beautiful photographs that we could all stand to look at, along with some uplifting and encouraging words on the craft of motherhood. Enjoy!

Aw! This is amazing. I love the Kate Winslet, Princess Diana, and Jackie O quotes – & the photos that accompany them :)

Warm Regards,

This piece and all it’s wonderful quotes and pictures reminded me of a poem I love by Ursula K. Le Guin:
“Please bring strange things
Please come bringing new things.
Let very old things come into your hands.
Let what you do not know come into your eyes.
Let desert sand harden your feet.
Let the arch of your feet be the mountains.
Let the paths of your fingertips be your maps
and the ways you go be the lines on your palms.
Let there be deep snow in your inbreathing
and your outbreath be the shining of ice.
May your mouth contain the shapes of strange words.
May you smell food cooking you have not eaten.
May the spring of a foreign river be your navel.
May your soul be at home where there are no houses.
Walk carefully, well loved one,
walk mindfully, well loved one,
walk fearlessly, well loved one.
Return with us, return to us,
be always coming home.”
