I’m always sure to photograph parents individually with their children during a family photo session, but there is something about stepping outside the family session dynamic and focusing on just one parent and the kiddos.
Enter, the Mommy & Me mini session.
After doing a session with my son last year, I knew it was something I wanted to do. I love when images capture emotion and connection – two things bound to be captured when the subjects are a mother and her babies (no matter how old they are!). And for us moms, we’re usually the ones TAKING the photos so it’s that much more important for us to exist in photos and carve out the time to get in front of the camera ourselves, no matter how much we might not want to.
If you haven’t read the post about my personal family photography session experience, I encourage you to… It details my realization (as a mother myself, not a photographer) that while I may not like everything about myself in photos, NONE of it means anything to my son. I am just going to be so grateful to have these images that transport me back to the day they were taken in 15 years from now when he goes to college (did I really just write that?!), or when he gets married (again, did I really write that?). And he is going to have them forever too. No matter how outdated a USB drive is in 25, 50, 100 years, someone will have the printed images of us.
It fills my heart to have been able to create similar memories and images for these mothers and their children during the Mommy & Me mini session event.
