“She had my back, supported me. This is the role of the mother, and in that visit I really saw clearly,
and for the first time, why a mother is really important. Not just because she feeds and also loves and cuddles
and even mollycoddles a child, but because in an interesting and maybe an eerie and unworldly way, she stands in the gap.
She stands between the unknown and the known. In Stockholm, my mother shed her protective love down around me
and without knowing why, people sensed that I had value.”
The connection between moms and their children is just undeniable. As a proud mother myself, I know that there is just something you can’t really put into words about being a mom. That’s why I created the Mommy & Me Sessions; to capture that incredible connection. There is love and joy that is reflected between a mother and her children, and it’s so sweet.
We did a very lavish set for these, in order to keep the shots looking as though we brought the outside in. I wanted something bright and clean, and encouraged my clients to dress in springtime whites and florals/pastels in order to make everything cohesive. This beautiful mama and baby wore coordinating shades of pink and cream, and they were so fun to work with. Baby girl had plenty of smiles, and loved reading “Guess How Much I Love You” during their session. Are you wanting to schedule a special mini session of your own? I always post to my Facebook page when I have mini’s coming up, and there are summer ones in the works right now…be sure to check them out!
