</div></blockquote></div><p>Mom Rachel Davis is going viral after sharing her travel troubles on Instagram. Davis says she was trying to fly from North Carolina to New Hampshire on American Airlines when she was kicked off a flight because her 2-year-old son would not keep his mask on. </p><p>Parents can understand how frustrating flying with kids must be right now, and Davis says that her son had been on four other flights with American Airlines within the week and had not been required to wear a mask on those flights. </p><p>”I tried repeatedly, begged him, bribed him, pleaded with him, did everything I could while he was screaming and crying as I tried to hold him and put the mask on, feeling my absolute lowest of lows as a mother,” Davis wrote on Instagram, adding that her family had to make alternative travel arrangements with the airline after all the passengers deplaned. It was incredibly stressful, she says. </p><p>Most airlines do not require children <em>under</em> 2 years old to wear masks, and American Airlines is one of them. In a statement to Motherly the airline explained: “To ensure the safety of our customers and team, American Airlines requires all persons 2 years and older to wear an appropriate face covering throughout the entirety of their journey. Policies are enforced and approved face coverings are made available at key points throughout the customer journey. We’ve reached out to the family to learn more about their recent travel experience and to address their concerns.” </p><p>Unfortunately, Davis’ son was over 2, so he did need to wear the mask per their policy, but that doesn’t mean that airline attendants couldn’t have shown some compassion or empathy when they saw Davis struggling. Traveling right now is so stressful and while the CDC and other health authorities do recommend masks for everyone over 2 years old, <a href=”https://www.mother.ly/child/stop-mask-shaming” target=”_blank”>some children will not be able to wear masks.</a> It’s something that’s important for everyone to remember as we move through this pandemic together.</p>

The results are ridiculously cool, and something these moms are going to treasure forever. If you’re looking for some inspiration for an upcoming <a href=”https://www.mother.ly/news/gigi-hadid-pregnancy-photos” target=”_self”>maternity shoot of your own</a>, you’re definitely going to want to pin these pics. </p><p><a href=”https://www.vanessafirme.com/?fbclid=IwAR0fXN3M3s5X-cn1iGLtKbjM_v7R6nP8DoIzM05oRNRuYFGmu5i63musUho” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Photographer Vanessa Firme</a> says the idea to dress moms like Disney princesses came to her when she was working with a client who was expecting a little girl she planned to name Bella. That reminded them of Belle, so Firme decided to dress the mom in the princess’s iconic yellow gown. Firme says that first shoot was so amazing she immediately realized she wanted to do more like that. “I thought: this must be what happens after ‘happily ever after’,” she explained.</p><p>Since that first Belle session, Firme has transformed pregnant mamas into Ariel, Snow White, Jasmine, Cinderella and even Maleficent. She’s even gotten some dads to join in the fun, like one who dressed up as the Beast. Even more adorably, she’s also had the opportunity to do sessions with some of the babies after they’re born and include them in the Disney-inspired shoots as well.</p><p>Firme says the shoots aren’t just about getting great photos. She says they let the moms forget about the not-so-magical parts of pregnancy, if only for a short time. “They were removed for an instant from the real world and taken to a world of enchantment.” She says she also thought about the ways that children idolize their mothers, and view them as princesses in their own right. Now, they’ll have pictures to match that sentiment.</p><p>Firme has styled so many amazing shoots, she says she “can’t choose a favorite.” And we definitely can’t either.</p>
