With Mother's Day just around the corner I wanted to offer something really special to all mom's out there. If there's one thing I love to capture in a photograph, it's the effortless love between a mother and her little ones.
As a mom myself, I know how hard it is to get in front of the camera. We go through a lot between carrying a baby (or babies) for nine months, birthing them and then caring for them, literally losing weeks of sleep over the years. Our bodies change, not only in size but shape, we have scars where we never had them before, stretch marks and wrinkles across our faces. It can be hard to see these changes in ourselves but what I see in every image that I capture of motherhood is real, authentic and raw beauty. Images that are filled with a kind of love you can't even fathom until you've been there. If there's one thing I wish I had more of, it's photos of my own mother with my siblings and I when we were little. So mama's I beg of you, please get in the frame, if not for yourselves do it for your children.
As added incentive to get you in the frame, for the next month (until the end of May) I am offering "Motherhood Sessions" at a special price!
Picture yourself, being able to cuddle up with your little ones while looking through a storybook filled with page after page of images with you in them, with them. A storybook filled with your own words about your journey to motherhood, your proudest moments and your most cherished memories. What a gift that would be to your children and I hope something that you would all cherish in the years to come. These motherhood storybook sessions will give you all of that.
Included in these sessions are;
- A 1 hour session with you and your little ones (either in your home or on location)
- Professionally edited images in a private online gallery with print release
- A Motherhood Storybook and a USB including all of your professionally edited images
I know you're all wondering about these mysterious storybooks so I'm going to break down the process for you into steps;
You book your session with your deposit to hold your date and I will send you a questionnaire to fill out. This questionnaire is crucial for the session but it also helps me build your storybook afterwards. The more you share in your answers, the better your storybook will be and I promise this is all the work you have to do!
It's time for your session. We spend about an hour together capturing you with your little ones in a lifestyle/documentary fashion. You can check out some of my previous work under the portfolio tab at the top of my website.
I will then need time to edit your images and it usually takes me up to three weeks before your online gallery is ready for viewing. When your gallery is complete I will email you a link to the gallery where you will review all of your images and choose your favourites.
Once you've chosen your favourite images and completed your questionnaire I will start building your storybook. You will be able to choose between a few different colours and options for your book but for the most part I will build the book for you, I feel like this experience is much more enjoyable for you when you see your book for the first time in print. Below are a few images from a storybook I recently created with a client;
The final step in the process is you receiving your story book as well as a USB with all of your professionally edited images.
