Mommy & Me ~ Photography session {Spring, The Woodlands Texas}

Mommy & Me ~ Photography session {Spring, The Woodlands Texas}

As moms, we are often the ones behind the camera, capturing our families memories. This is why I am over-the-moon excited about my new “Mommy & Me” photography sessions. I feel it is important that moms get IN FRONT of the camera. To be captured with their loves, to be IN the Picture… {Seriously moms..it is time to get.in.the.picture!}  Recently, a friend was telling me that when her mom passed, she went through boxes and boxes of pictures spanning a lifetime, looking for a picture of her and her mother together. She only found 2. That makes me sad.

Here is Mel with Gabriella.

One of Mel and Gabriella’s favorite Mommy & Me things to do is bake cookies. In preparation for Gabriella’s 4th birthday party, they are making Cinnamon sugar cookies, from an old family recipe, for their friends, family, and birthday guests to enjoy! I was impressed with Gabriella’s attention span and how well she listened and followed instructions. I silently (and not so silently) laughed throughout the session at her intense concentration which caused her tongue to stick out…so stinkin cute! After our session, Gabriella took out her baby book and showed me pictures of her from birth to now. It is my hope that these images will make it into her book and that she will look back on them with a smile and be able to feel the love of her mother.

Hiding from the storm

Hiding from the storm

I wasn’t taking the time to photograph my own children and capture theseContinue Reading
