Mother’s Day is on my mind this morning … I have had the honor of capturing so many moms in so many different seasons of motherhood over the years. All have one thing in common … love. There is an overwhelming love that moms have for their babies and it radiates in every photo shoot. And there is a peace and a calm that comes when mom is near … babies, children and even teens and adults seem to melt into their momma’s arms in front of the camera.
Momma…I implore you to consider portraits with your children. I understand some of us (me included) are not extremely comfortable in front of the camera, but I promise you will regret not being in your family portraits with your babies. Your babies will soon grow up an want to see you in their portraits and you will want to remember those moments and every moment of the journey to the fullest.
Did you know there was a recent study that suggested children who see themselves in family portraits have a high sense of value within their family unit? When I read this, I completely and instantly understood the findings of this study, as I see this first-hand. One of my clients actually sent me the link to this article and commented that her daughter’s confidence soared in recent years since I have been photographing her family. It’s true… when I began photographing this sweet little two year old, she was so incredibly adorable, but so shy. Today, she is confident and beaming every time I see her! There are many stories like this, as I have the honor of watching families grow as they return year after year for portraits. I am ever so grateful for my loyal client base and count it a privilege to document their memories over the years.
