Our annual Mommy and Me Mini Sessions are coming up soon! We will have our sessions in the morning on Sunday, May 1st from 9-10am in a location in the Northwest Chicago Suburbs.
Sadly, I’m told all of the time to just “photograph the kids.” I will tell you that I understand. I had two sets of photographs taken of my family last year. The first time was on the beach on our first big vacation ever. My husband and I announced our pregnancy to our three boys. It was such a special moment and I was thrilled to have a photo of my boys with me.
Below is one of my favorites taken by Pure Life Photography in Jacksonville, Florida.
As you can see, it is a completely natural interaction with me and my boys. I can take plenty of photos of them but it is important to me to be in the photos. They will not be young forever and they will want to see photos of themselves of course but mainly they will want to see Mom and Dad with them. Your children will want to know what you did together, were you affectionate with them, did you light up in their presence and so many questions that these special moment photos can answer for them.
This is why I offer these types of sessions. I want everyone to have a chance to have a photo taken with their children and display it in their home. These are the types of photos that will make you smile when your toddler dumps your phone in the toilet, when your teenager says “I hate you,” when your 5 year old acts like they know everything, when your kids grow up and aren’t around as much. I wish I remembered to get in more photos with my children and trust me, it is something I’m REALLY working on remembering more often especially on holidays or other special special events but I get it. Moms are busy, moms don’t always have time to put on make up, moms always have x pounds to lose, and so many other things we can make excuses for not being in those photos.
“Take the time to be in more photos with your children. Don’t worry about how you look that day because the smile on your face when with your children will be the focus, not the fact that you have spit up on your shirt or bags under your eyes. This is my advice for you.”
I’m offering a chance to get a professional set of portraits taken with your little one(s) as a special gift to yourself this Mother’s Day! It is very easy too…just sign up below and I’ll make sure you have some beautiful portraits with your child(ren) to display in your home and give you something to really cherish and smile about forever.
