“I’ve been dying to photograph an in home mom and me session for ages and the timing worked out perfectly to do one of my friend and her gorgeous daughter. I had just come off maternity leave and needed a fun session for a creative outlet. My friend Lara is expecting a baby boy and wanted to capture this time with her daughter while it’s still just the two of them. These last weeks before baby #2 comes is so special and fun. The time before your toddler loses their “baby” look completely and takes on a new role in the family. I remember cherishing the moments doing things I had taken for granted when it was just the two of us. There is also great excitement and anticipation waiting for the next perfect addition to the family.
I have photographed Lara before and always love the sweet connection between her and her daughter Vivian. Vivian wasn’t completely on board with a photo session that morning (hello every toddler ever) but once we started playing and letting her jump around on the bed her true spunky personality came out.
Motherhood is my absolute favorite thing to photograph. The bond and connection is so very visible. Each mother/child relationship is unique and individual. The joy that is brought by seeing a beautiful photograph of yourself and your child is like none other.” Whitney, Photographer
