I have been behind on my blogging. I have SO much blogging to do. In fact, I can hardly believe that June is almost behind us because I am certain it was just May! This beautiful Mama and her little guy came out for a Mama and Me session last month and we were greeted by a field full of glorious wish flowers. The light was amazing, they were truly the sweetest and we made just a bit of magic. These seem to be one of my most favorite sessions to shoot these days.

These are so gorgeous! I love them so much!

Oh, Lovelies.

I have something special for you Mama’s out there. Motherhood is one of my biggest muses and not just because I am a Mama of six myself. It is profound. It is precious. It begs to be documented, and yet we are rarely on this side of the camera. So here is your chance to hop in the frame and preserve something special for both yourself AND your children.

You Deserve this.

I am so excited to share these minis and finally be able to offer something simple and special and almost as beautiful as the love you have for your children. Even better, I am offering these up at a steal. These are almost HALF of what my regular mini sessions cost and this is because it is a very special introductory rate. Interested?? Here is what is included for you.

Date + Times:

June 25th, 2016

4:00pm, 4:35pm, 5pm, 5:35pm, 6pm, 6:35pm, 7pm

*Times May be added depending on demand. There has to be interest for at least six more sessions for that to happen though.

All the Awesome Details//

-20 Minute Session. No More, No less. All you need to do is come, be and love on your children. No rigid posing or stuffy photos. In fact you don’t even need to look at me. These are about you and how much you love your littles.

-Six beautiful digital images. You will get a full resolution copy for you to print at your leisure and a web resolution copy to share on Facebook for all of your (other) favorite people to see how amazing you are. YES, YOU are amazing.

-A gorgeous, unique indoor vintage building setting. Bonus is this is on top of a quirky vintage shop, so be prepared to spoil yourself this day!

Now the Business end.

I have a very limited amount of these sessions. I am dipping my toes in the pool, and I want to offer these again- but right now I am seeing how they do so I am offering them at a one time rate AND only doing so many. If they are popular this time, I may be able to open a few more. Please note that times are first come and first serve however, and booking order gets precedent over how those go. Exact times are listed. Since this is an event you will have to be prompt. I can’t make extra time for you.

*These are NON refundable and must be paid in full using the shopping cart function below to reserve your date and time. Nothing will be held until this purchased.

*These are held in Fort Collins, CO. You must come here to me but the bonus is the gorgeous building and setting I get to photograph for you.

*These are ONLY for Mothers and their children OR expecting Mamas. Unfortunately these are not for full or extended families.

*These will be held rain or shine. (Indoors.)

Again there are NO refunds. Please make sure you are available. If you can not make it there are no re-shoots granted, but you can absolutely sell your mini spot if you need to.

I am so excited for this…I LOVE the images that you capture and can’t wait to see how you catch my little boys!

Being a Mama isn’t easy business. It is so much more beautiful than can be portrayed in words or images, it is so much harder than can be shared in sentiments or tears, it brings the kind of joy that only can truly come from a place so deep within- it doesn’t have a name. It isn’t merely flesh and bone, it is heart and soul. It is 2AM feedings, hurt feelings and love pouring out of our hands and eyes. It is bandaging wounds deeper than scraped knees and the kind of hugs that you just don’t want to release. It is planting roots and sowing seeds and a lot of failure too. Most importantly, it is unconditional love and devotion and putting yourself second or even third or fourth of seventh… until your very last breath.

And it is breath taking and life giving and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Happy Mother’s Day, sweet Friends.

The way you capture these beautiful little moments is nothing short of amazing. Thank you for your continual inspiration <3

I honestly wasn’t supposed to open my season until later this Spring. Colorado weather for one can be a bit all over the place. In fact, this session was moved up a couple of days because of snow. It was in the 70′s all week, and then we were forecasted a winter storm right when they were supposed to meet me for our session. Add to that, having a new baby and readjusting to life with six children, I figured I would ease myself in. It is much like getting in the pool bit by bit. You dip your toes and lower yourself apprehensively. There are so many changes for our family this year. Our sweet girl has decided she mostly wants me and ONLY me, so it presents it’s own challenges. Fortunately, my clients are amazing. They have all pretty much expressed being completely comfortable with our little Daisy tagging along with my husband. (He comes anyway as my assistant.) And let me also tell you. There isn’t a cuter ice breaker than a little baby. Kids flock. It works much better than the old pez dispenser in your hot shoe trick ( most photographers will totally get that reference haha.)

Every winter however, I find myself getting what I think of as the “itch.” I am ready, and anxious to get back to work. Work feels like a silly word when you love what you do SO much, but the first few shoots of the season especially are always defining for me. There is always a bit more growth, a new fresh vision. It is exciting and one of the biggest reasons I always give myself late December-January off. I need that to feel connected to my craft and to rekindle that passion.

This beautiful Mama reached out after following me on Instagram for some time. Aside from the fact that I was eager to photograph her beautiful self with her beautiful identical triplets, I just loved her for her big beautiful heart. Yep, I did that on purpose. And I doubt that beautiful is a strong enough adjective. I knew that this was going to be an amazing time. They were coming to me from Oklahoma, so it was important to really share my love not only for what I do, but my home state here. I took them to one of my most favorite areas, and we were able to capture some super sweet images.

I also give them a ton of credit because they came straight from hanging out in the car for hours (and I don’t just mean the girls. Shout out to Mom and Dad.)  I promised a playground at the end of our session (it really was I swear haha), but it was a “natural” play ground and the girls were like umm.. this isn’t doing it. And then really, having a weird lady with her big weird camera that isn’t Mom’s. That has to be a bit strange too. And they still hit it out of the park. The time they gave me was amazing. And at the very end of the session in typical fashion, my husband saved us from being locked in the park because I get carried away and just want to keep photographing for hours and hours. They were a joy. And I will miss them. In fact I am trying to lure them all back in for a full family session in the mountains someday. I loved them. I really loved them.

And I’ll quit rambling now because the photos are begging to be shared. I can’t wait for all the Mama & Me sessions I have coming up soon! And there are still just a couple more at the VERY special rate. You can find that HERE. I decided to leave those available since Mother’s Day is coming up. I also have something else very very special happening soon for Mother’s day so keep an eye out!

These are just gorgeous! Makes me want to have a mama and me session with my twin boys while they are still little :-) You do amazing work.

Ashley Noelle Marsh

Looking at these made me want to run to my son’s Mother’s Day Out, grab him, and snuggle all day long! I love how your work is gorgeous and also shows so much emotion!
