Are you making a visual history for your loved ones with you in them?
I bet many of you will say no. All too many times I try to get a Mom into a photo with their baby, toddler, child, teen and they say, "Nooo, I am _______________ fill in the blank." I'm here to tell you that's nonsense! I am here to tell you the only thing they will think when they look at photos of you together are my Mom loved me, cared for me, fed me, played with me, hugged me, went to my games, picked me up from school, took care of me when I was sick, worked to support me, read books to me, showed me tough love when I needed it, kissed me goodnight...They are going to cherish those photos more and more over time I promise you and so will you. In fact, you'll probably think you look better and better in that photo with time! LOL. Personally, my favorite photos of my children and I are the ones where I am interacting with them - I don't have to be looking at the lens.
when your children look back for photos with their Mom - will they find them? I hope so...
As we approach Mother's Day (Sunday, May 14) in this next month, I encourage you to do a Mommy and Me session! Priceless memories forever...
For Mamas with baby (not walking), I am photographing in the studio with the white bed along with some greenery along the bed frame. Mamas may use the studio's white, cream lace dresses or tops. You may wear what you wish, but the vision is a soft white/cream palette overall look. I recommend the same for baby - a white/cream outfit. If you are nursing, I highly recommend some beautiful nursing shots as this connection with your baby is indescribable. A mix of lifestyle and portrait shots will be taken.
For Mamas with toddlers and older children, I will be photographing on location outdoors before sunset. Do you have a favorite activity that stands out in this stage of life that you'd love to document? It's not necessary, but something to think about especially if you have a child in the imaginative age range. Again, a mix of lifestyle and portrait shots will be taken.
Mama and Me Sessions will begin shooting the week of April 17 through the entire month of May. Weekend sessions will happen on Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30, 2017 from 12 - 4 pm scheduling each hour - 4 spots available each day. This is the only weekend session available before Mother's Day as SunFest is happening May 3-7 and downtown is pretty crazy. The 2nd weekend studio session will be Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, 2017. Weekday sessions are also available. On location outdoor sessions are booked 1 hour before sunset.
For styling, I recommend classy on trend, comfortable clothes that you can move in with your children - maxi dresses, flowy shirts, stretchy pieces. I will consult with you prior to your shoot date to discuss final wardrobe. LuLaRoe just came out with a super cute Mommy and Me Collection - leggings as small as 2T to Tall and Curvy size. PLUS, LuLaRoe Team Jen is offering an additional 10% discount along with booking this session!!! Can't go wrong!
