Motherhood Sessions Special : In Celebration of Mothers Day
Growing up my mom was always the creative type, an artist and nurturer at heart. She always had a paint brush in hand, craft project in process or camera up ready to capture our life.
She valued documenting our everyday moments before it was even in style. We even have these videos from back in the 90s of when we were all little ones. She would wake us each up with the video camera and capture everything we did in those 24 hours, from potty training to preschool to putting us to bed at night. Her love for just making a record of our family history has been something that has stuck with me my entire life.
I remember though that while she captured life as art in a beautiful way, she struggled herself to get in front of the camera. She always wanted to be the person taking the photos of our family road trips, spaghetti covered faces and even the one to volunteer to snap the group photo at Disney world. She avoided being in the frame as much as possible.
She is in no way a rare case and I can admit I’ve gotten that gene too. Once I started to become a photographer it made it that much harder for me to force myself in front of it. It’s weird how walls come up and how safe it feels to be in control of capturing the moment rather than being present in it. I think as women we all have a bit of anxiety when it comes to being seen and photographed.
Especially as moms, the moments that you are spending with your littles and being present just don’t usually feel like your most glamorous. We can all agree parenthood isn’t perfect, and that mistakes and messes are made. But these seasons of childhood, raising your kiddos and documenting those in between moments have such an importance. Remembering the way you routinely woke your little ones up each morning, the way you took your kiddos to school with coffee in one hand and your youngest sleeping in the carseat, the sweet giggles that fill the house at bath time or the way your kiddos love to play outside until dark.
So for this Mother's Day instead of offering mini sessions or mommy and me sessions I thought I'd offer simply a few new types of Motherhood sessions with a limited time discount in honor of Mother's Day.
