Great Mother’s Day Gift Idea!

Spring is sprung Mommy and Me Session

I have two wonderful children, but you know what I never did?! I never got maternity photos taken! I never got newborn photos taken! In fact, I never had any kind of professional photo shoot done until Charlotte was a year and a half, and the only reason I did it was because my brother gave me the session as a birthday gift! (And this was before I became a photographer, so this was a super big deal for me!) To this day, it is such a huge regret because those are pieces of time that I will never get back!

To this day, that photo shoot from my brother is one of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten!

For those of you that don’t know, my son was born with a congenital heart defect, and my time spent in the hospital with him while he recovered from open heart surgery is actually what sent me down this path to pursuing photography. I realized, sitting there in the hospital with this tiny baby in my arms, that if I lost him, all I would have left were the photos. Yes, it’s a little morbid, but it’s the epiphany that changed my life!

Now my mission is to give others the gift of memories that can be cherished forever, by generations to come! I love to capture the love between people, the connection and the bond that people share. I love capturing raw, human moments that naturally happen during even the most well-run session. I want to capture laughter, love, and light!

Mother’s Day is May 13th this year, and if you haven’t come up with a Mother’s Day present for your mom yet (or a present for your wife, gentlemen!), consider giving her the gift of memories by booking a photo shoot with a local photographer whose work you know she admires! Those memories and moments last a lot longer than a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers – I promise!
