Hollywood Mommy...

In honor of Mother's Day & my own wonderful Mommy, I thought that I would share a few of my favorite photographs of Hollywood starlets with their real-life children. Instead of showcasing strictly glamorous poses, these photographs allow us a "behind-the-scenes" peek into the quiet moments & everyday lives these famous stars might have experienced.

What a terrific array of vintage photos, I really enjoyed looking at these. They're such a beautiful counterpoint to the same few mini hollywood stars-to-be you see in the media today.

I'm going to mention this lovely article in my next "weekly link roundup" on Chronically Vintage, which should be up on Sunday (17th).

Wishing you a splendid weekend,
♥ Jessica
