Mommy & Me

June 24, 2020

Can I let you in on a secret? My heart longs for more Mommy & Me sessions. They seriously have become one of my absolute favorite portrait sessions.

If you are a Momma reading this and you haven’t had a Mommy & Me session, no matter how old your babe is, JUST DO IT! You NEED to get in front of the camera.

As a Mom myself, I know how easy it is to just grab the cell phone or camera and snap away. The problem with that is I am always the one BEHIND the camera.

I’ll be honest with you, I’m not a fan of being in front of the camera. But I know just how important it is to have photos and documenting the precious time we’ve been given, so I do it!

Think about it this way, if you never get in front of the camera, what tangible things will your children and grandchildren have of YOU when you are gone?

Memories are wonderful, but having that photograph to accompany the memory is irreplaceable.

Mom, if you are reading this, I want a Mommy & Me session with you please. We don’t have nearly enough photos together and we need to fix that ASAP!

With that being said, this Mommy & Me Session was a blast!

Caleb came to visit me in the studio for his one-year milestone session and I knew we needed to take advantage of our time so I asked his Mommy if she would celebrate him as well as her with a session together.

I love having this family in front of my camera and even more getting to be apart of their journey with each one. I’m already praying for baby Digrys three and love them so much.

I can’t even put into words the complete joy I have for the littles. They are precious gifts I’ll forever be grateful to God for.

We enjoyed the sunshine (may have complained about the heat a tiny bit) and an off the path spot under the trees that offered a tiny bit of shelter from the beaming sun.

It was perfection.

Also, LOOK at his MONOGRAM. I can’t even you guys! If you don’t already know (because clearly, you live under a rock lol) I am obsessed with all things monogrammed and agree with the statement that if it’s not moving, monogram it.

Take a look for yourself, these are simply breathtaking.
