This annual event has quickly become one of my most favorite things we do at the studio. As a mom myself, I am so keenly aware of how fleeting the moments we have with our children are. I also know that, as mom, it is really easy to always be the one “behind the camera”- and this leads to the terrible issue of mom not being in any photos! Moms. Get in front of the camera. Take pictures with your children. Hand the phone or camera to your husband, ask a passerby to snap a quick picture, take the selfie, hire a professional… your children will treasure these images someday. I know all too well how hard we are on ourselves. We say, “I just need to lose 10 pounds, then I’ll book a session”, or “I didn’t fix my hair today”, “I look like a mess”… your kids don’t care about any of that! Your kids love you as you are- because you are their mother. Give them snapshots of the memories to keep forever and to one day share with their own children. You won’t regret it. Okay… putting the soapbox away :)
I want to thank each and every mom who brought their kiddos to this fun event and every dad who booked this special treat for their wife! Here are my favorites!
