You guys, can you even handle this? When this mama contacted me about doing a shoot you better believe I was stoked!! I mean, how cute are these kids?
What an awesome mama she is too! She recently divorced and is doing this mom thing on her own + I was so excited to do a Mama and Me session with her.
Growing up my mom also divorced twice and if there is one thing that it taught me, it is the fact that if you aren't happy or someone isn't treating you right, change it. I am a firm believer that we can control our own happiness.
My Stepdad and I didn't have the best relationship when they were married so I thought it was pretty awesome that this mom asked to pick up her Step-daughter because she also wanted to include her in the session. Gosh, I hope that relationship continues because how cute are these girls?! I also think they look just alike too!
To me there is nothing better than a mama setting all of her insecurities aside to jump in front of the camera with her kids. There is truly nothing more beautiful than a mother loving her kids + being able to feel that during a session and in the images.
These kids love her and she adores them. They seriously had the spunkiest personalities and were so much fun to photograph! I've said it probably a million times, but I truly love photographing kids, mamas, and babies.
When a mama steps in front of my camera, I want her to forget I'm there. I guide you into focusing on your kids + being in the moment instead of worrying about the camera in your face.
If there is one thing I wish I had more of it would be photos of me with my kids. I made a goal to step in front of the camera with them more this year + I am dead set on making it happen.
Who wants to join me? You can't get this time back so embrace it and give your babies a tangible memory to hold onto when you are gone.
