I love photographing Mom and Me sessions!
Why do I love it so much?
Because children want to see photos of themselves with their moms (and dads!) when they grow up!
Think about it. When you look at your childhood photos, do you look remember when and where the photo was taken? Do you remember the argument before hand or the goofy joke someone told to get everyone to laugh and smile? Do you remember why you picked that outfit and how 'in fashion' it was at the time? You were stylin' weren't you?!
Grown adults don't look at their childhood photographs and criticize they way their parents looked. They look at that photo and remember all the good memories that go with it.
Parents today (especially moms) will find every excuse in the world to not be in a photograph with their kids. Here are some of the excuses I've heard:
- My hair's not done.
- I don't have any makeup on.
- I'm not wearing the right clothes.
- I just want it to be about the kids.
And the most common I hear...
- I don't look good enough (aka I'm too fat and I need to lose weight)
Well, I'm here to tell you if you keep putting off taking family photographs with your kids, one day your kids will end up with a zillion childhood memories of themselves and nothing to look back on to remember you, their parent.
That is why I love Mom and Me sessions!
A mom or dad who is willing to step outside of their comfort zone in order to capture beautiful memories of them with their kids is a parent to applaud!
I recently photographed a Mom and Me session over by Mansfield Damn and Steiner Ranch in Austin. I loved photographing this Mom and Daughter!! We laughed and just a really good time which turned out some amazing photos!
Enjoy this Mom and Me photos taken in Austin!
