Mommas. Let me tell you something quickly here… Those little babies you hold in your arms today, you know the ones that need you for everything? They grow. And wow, do they ever grow quickly.
My own biggest little guy turned 12 yesterday, and I swear he was just starting kindergarten a few days ago. He’s almost as tall as me and he eats like crazy and his feet keep growing. I keep telling him he needs to stop but I know he won’t.
And so it is, this thing of motherhood. Those babies, they just grow up on you.
Each of my clients comes to me for a different reason. Maybe they want something pretty for the walls. Maybe they want a Christmas card to wow the neighbors. But it’s clients like these, the ones that want me to photograph their family just as it is right at this particular moment – the smiles and the joy of this phase with these two little guys. Those are the sessions that resonate most with me. Because time keeps ticking and before you know it, they are at another phase in their journey together.
Of course, like most mommas, this one had a ton of questions about what to wear and what to do with their photos after the session… and of course, like with most sessions, we took care of these questions.
From the very beginning I worked with her to find the perfect session dates (and a backup date when the big guy got a super crazy shiner the day before our scheduled session!) And then to come up with clothing solutions that fit their own personal style. And once we were finished getting all these smiles, I went to her home and came up with a beautiful wall gallery perfect for their walls!
And they loved every shot… so I’m going to have to share more with you here…
Would you care to guess what mom and dad’s profession is? That’s right, they are both dentists! And I promise you I didn’t put them up to this… so funny!
