Mama and Me Mini Sessions are some of my most favorite to shoot. They aren’t overly long and to be truthful, I wouldn’t mind more time because Motherhood is such an endless muse of inspiration. I could stay there and photograph Mamas and their children for hours. The love and connection between mother and child is so deep and resonates in such a special way for me, likely because I am a Mother myself and know that love all to well. It is imperfect but stunning in those imperfections. It begs to be documented. Maybe I also treasure this so much because I know us Mothers tend to be lacking in images of us with our own children, sadly. I always aim to change that by making these sessions more accessible.
The other bond I hold so sacred to me is my sisterhood. My baby sister is ten years younger than me. I admit I have an almost maternal bond with her being so much older. As adults that bond has shifted again, but we are thick as thieves.
When these sisters approached me and asked if they could book their own Mama and Me sessions… but have them hosted back-to-back, I was instantly inspired. So much so, I hope to get this special connection again in the future. We came away with some pretty wonderful images! It was pretty awesome to see not only the love they have for one another, but the love they have for each other’s children.
