Honored to have three generations in front of the camera for this special portrait session, celebrating motherhood.  Grandma adores her grandchildren, the love and connection they share is undeniable.  The joy overflows in each and every moment.  This beautiful mom and daughter gathered the next generation … these two sweet sisters and we captured magic.

When they stepped out of the car and I saw their wardrobe, I knew this would be an amazing portrait session.  They were perfectly coordinated in tones of blush and cream, perfect for this natural green backdrop of nature.  The lighting was dreamy and the love was evident in each and every image.  What a special connection this family has, so blessed!

can’t you just feel the love … this sweet girl adores her mommy!


Mom and baby … I adore images of motherhood


grandma is so smitten with this baby girl


perfectly unposed and one of my favorite captures … yes, I do pose clients, but sometimes those “in-between” moments, when non one is “posed” capture the true emotion of the moment …


We met this this sweet family under a canopy of willows and magic was captured!  So many gorgeous images from this portrait session to share, but in honor of Mother’s Day weekend, we will begin with this one.

As I was editing, I came across this image and it instantly became a favorite.  It was not posed, but yet it was perfect.  It captures the fun, happy and sweet relationship between mom and son.  It demonstrates the love and joy mom has in her heart for her son, and highlights how much this little boy loves his mommy.

This is motherhood … the love, the joy, the emotion, the beauty, the relationship, the bond between mother and child … and it is a special blessing in life.

Moms, hold your babies close whether they are 6 months, 6 years, 16 or older.  Shower them with love, you brought them into this world and you are their world … enjoy every moment of motherhood.

I know I have said this many times, but baby’s first year seems to happen in the blink of an eye!  Wasn’t it just yesterday I was holding his baby girl in my arms, styling her custom newborn photo shoot?  I remember how sweet she was throughout the session, as she slept like a little princess…the shades of pink and gray we coordinated in her props and accessories, and how precious her mommy was…like a ray of sunshine…and so in love with her baby girl!

These moments go so quickly, and thankfully we have been blessed to watch this little one grow up in front of our camera over the past year, as a Baby Portrait Planner.  We have been capturing her milestones all the year long, and she is precious!  Here’s a peek from her one year birthday photo shoot…I chose this as the first preview because I adore how we can see her little teeth!  🙂
