As a mother, I am constantly taking pictures of my kids … even if its just a few quick snapshots on my phone. I probably take several pictures of them every day. But rarely am I in the pictures .. kinda hard to do if you are the one taking them, right? I know other mothers struggle with this too. Life is busy. We are happy to snap a few pictures of our kids each day to preserve those daily memories, but rarely do we include ourselves. Its not necessarily intentional (well if I don’t feel I look good then maybe it is)… but mostly its just the way things work out.
About this Session
So for Mother’s Day this year I was at my mom’s house and my sister and her son were there too. I decided to gift her with a few pictures and capture her and her son together. Just a couple nice impromptu memory pictures. The light was beautiful, which if you are a photographer, yummy light is like a drug. We ran outside just before dinner and snapped a couple quick pictures. These are backlit in my mom’s backyard. Most are full natural light and then for a select few I used a little fill. This kid is so methodical and inquisitive. And his little winking face is the absolute cutest. Its part of his unique personality and I love that I captured it. I am sure I am biased, but I have the cutest nephew. Please take a look.
