Being a mother of four myself I know exactly what mom’s want in a photo shoot.
They want to look good, and they want to look gentle and loving. They want to have tender portraits of themselves with their kids.
But they also (mostly) don’t like being photographed, the actual process that is.
We don’t know how to act, where to look, when to smile or even how to smile.
And this is where my Motherhood session is the perfect solution.
I LOVE Motherhood sessions. Simply put, because it shows connection. Emotion. Intimacy.
I love capturing the little things that make you a mother.
The way you hold their hands so they don’t fall.
The way you fold their hair behind their ear.
The way little fingers play with your hair behind your back that you will never ever get to see otherwise.
The way you look at them when you relax and stop posing.
Every. Single. Detail
Ever single gesture and facial expression that make you a great mom!
Get to see that.
As creatives, we have restless souls by nature
and we are always thinking of new ways
to improve our skills
and refresh our portfolios.
I had an itch that needed scratching recently
so I got three models
a hair and make up artist
a gorgeous venue
grabbed my assistant by the arm
and had ourselves a day full of creative fun!
Full blog post of final product coming soon…
When you leave the reflector in the car and you need it for this ONE shot….
