Running these only a few times a year, my Motherhood sessions are super special and I love them!
Giving Mums the chance to have some special photos with their babies is super important. I am constantly seeing mums out and about, with their phone in hand, snapping away while Dad plays with the baby or candidly walks with them. But it's not often it happens the other way around. I mean, sure, I bet in some cases it does and you're a lucky lady if your partner takes the initiative and snaps some natural shots of you and your baby/children, but more often than not it's the Mum's that are behind the camera.
That's why I created these super cute sessions once or twice a year! Just for Mums! This year my first session is taking place 22nd and 23rd February 2020, weekend! This would be the most perfect gift for husbands and partners to get in time for Mother's Day! I always include some images as part of the package and there's more too! Over the last 12-18 months I've been creating my own client wardrobe, filled with a range of dresses for Mum's to choose from for their session. Not only will a dress create more elegance, it stays with my shoot style and better still, save you from purchasing a dress for a once time use only! I also have some garments for 6-18 month olds which are super cute! Long lasting images and memories can be a far better gift than a bath bomb or a box of chocolates! This is always how I look at it – what will last longer and mean more? Carefully captured natural shots of you and your children, or, a box of Thorntons and a bunch of flowers. I know what I'd choose!
The shoot: When you arrive at my Colchester studio you can try some dresses on, or, you may already have seen one on my website and know what you're going to pick! We then cuddle, play and have lots of fun to create cheeky yet cuddly images! I adore tickle shots just as much as I love seeing your babies snuggle into your shoulder. In one case I had a little one fall asleep in Mum's arms – we carried on and got the sweetest cuddle shots! Also, no need to pose! Posing isn't my thing, I'm all about natural, emotive moments!
Let's not forget pregnant mummies-to-be and dog and cat mums! You're mummies too, and you're also included and very welcome to have a Motherhood session. How to book: There's only 6 sessions in this February Motherhood session! You can contact me via any of my social media channels or through my website form here. There's also further information about the shoots here.
