Mothers Day Special

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.

$150 off any Motherhood Session

A session that captures your family at it's most comfortable and captures your gifts as a mother at their most vulnerable, real and beautiful.

Claire & Brandon : Baby-moon Session

Sometimes you meet clients that you just hit it off with. Those are really the best sessions because all of us feel comfortable and fun and truly "out of comfortability comes creativity." I should coin that phrase because it's been a mantra all throughout my creative life. I love feeling laid-back and relaxed when I'm shooting, it's not because I'm not taking it seriously but because I get to actually be the artist you hired rather than a pressurized contractor. But i digress :)

This session with Claire and Brandon was definitely the most ideal from the comfyin home setting to all of us just having enough in common to never let the conversation lull. They are new to the Kansas City area just like me so I feel like we hit it off even more. I even thought, they should meet my husband, we would have so much fun grabbing drinks sometime. But mostly I just couldn't get over the sweet excitement they had about having their first little one. They were laughing and teasing about what to name her and Claire's supposed pregnancy brain. It kind of made me realize that in home maternity sessions are seriously the best of both worlds.

Don't get me wrong I do love the little kids with their energy and personality but sometimes trying to tame a rambunctious child is draining. But having a little one to at least talk about and focus on was just the perfect way to bring out all the feels from excitement to nerves to that sweet look you share with your partner that says, "dude we made a human being". I've decided to start calling these sweet sessions, Baby-moon Sessions because seriously thats what they are all about.

Rebecca Clair: Headshots

I had the opportunity  a couple weekends ago to photograph another beautiful creative in Kansas City. One of the great perks to be in this amazing creative community is swapping skills and sessions. I mean otherwise professional photographers would never have photos of themselves or of their families with them in it.

It's a crazy surreal feeling though being in front of the camera when you are a photographer. The process of feeling comfortable before a photo session and  yourself in the different poses are all things I ask my clients to just get; but honestly it's a lot harder than it seems. Chris and I are having our own session in a couple weekends and I'm already stressing about what to wear, my hair cut and dumb things like how my closet is organized (as if the whole session will be featuring the closet.)

Rebecca reached out to me a while back and we wanted to do something relaxed, candid and personal for her new headshots. She sent me her website bio and I immediately thought an in home session would be the only way to meet her needs. I wanted her to feel comfortable and relaxed all throughout her session because that's in my experience the best way to get her true personality to shine through in her photos.  I wanted to feature her favorite spots in her home with the things that made her feel natural, her camera, coffee cup and the best of all her little son.

So of course in my family photographer style we included him in about 60% of the session (it looks like more here because I just couldn't get enough, though I promise she got a lot more head shot options) What better way to reflect a stay at home mom/ photographer than to include the little boy her world revolves around (am I right) and I also just can't get enough of that relationship vibe throughout. So my apology for the pseudo mommy and me session mixed with head shots but I just couldn't help myself, their connection is too beautiful.
