There is no love like a mother's love and a children's love for their mother. My beautiful mother in her 20's and my mother's day from my kiddies. Failed to post yesterday! To all the beautiful mummys out there and those who are no longer with us. God Bless. 💜 💛👧 #motheringsunday2018#beautifulmammy#childrenslove#motherslove
The mother in this beautiful photo by Julia Margaret Cameron, ‘Mrs Duckworth at Saxonbury’ (1872), looks exhausted.
Cameron was interested in the difficult side of motherhood and in her photography she was concerned with giving a realistic and psychological portrait of women.
After being widowed, the mother in this photo would go on to marry Leslie Stephen and give birth to Virginia Woolf.
Woolf idolised her mother, talking of Julia often in her diary. She once exclaimed “for we think back through our mothers if we are women.” Julia Stephen appears in many of Cameron’s photos. This one is taken from our book ‘Julia Margaret Cameron’ which includes writings from herself, Virginia Woolf and Roger Fry.

I have so much to thank my wonderful Mum for there will never be enough words.
There really are so many different ways of being a Mum. I’m so grateful to say, this Mother’s Day I am a Step-Mum, a Dog-Mum and soon to be God-Mum ❤️
Becoming a step-Mum has been by far one of the most challenging experiences of my life but... I’m here, I’m doing it and very proud to say I can make him smile like this 90% of the time (except when He’s eating apple crumble or parsnips 🤣) I am surrounded by Wonderful Mums who, in some way, have guided me every step of the way but a MASSIVE shout out goes to @alisonpoppie Thank you for always reassuring me, guiding me and never judging 🌷
Happy Mother’s Day Mum, we all love you 💕
