The bond between parent and child

Can you believe it is April already?! Where did the year go...seriously!

We are getting very, very close to my favorite holiday: Mother's Day.

Why do I love Mother's Day, you ask? Well, of course because I am a mother, and the whole day has been created to celebrate me and what I do every day. Who doesn't love having everybody focus on them and shower them with gifts?

And then there is my kids. The whole fact that I get showered with praise and gifts (Ok, not "showered" exactly, but I do get an "Atta girl" here and there, and I usually get a gift or two) is because of the 4 little people living at my house. Without them this day would not be for me. Ooooo, and I do LOVE those kiddos!!

But the REAL reason that I love Mother's Day is because it is the one time of the year that I can coax my children into getting their picture taken WITH ME without any whining or complaining!

As the photographer in the family, I am rarely in any pictures with the rest of my family. Yet I am right there with them playing, eating, partying, vacationing, and just being...99.9% of the time. When I am in the picture, it is generally just a look-at-the-camera-and-smile type of picture.

What I would love...REALLY love...is meaningful pictures of me being a mom: playing card games, cooking breakfast, laughing, hugging, giving baths, playing at the park, kissing a boo-boo, tying a shoe, reading a book...you get the picture.

I am pretty sure that there are other parents out there who are the family "photographer" who feel the same way. But I am hoping to change that for at least some of you.

Here is my idea:



These sessions are not intended to be your typical look-at-the-camera-and-smile type of sessions. Yeah, we may get a few of those, but what I really want to focus on is the love and connection between parent and child. I want to capture your special bond and relationship with your child. I want to document those moments and rituals that mean so much to you at this very moment. Whether it be cuddling in bed together, practicing baseball at the park, or reading a favorite book together, I want to capture the moments that are special to you so you will have them to look back on always.

You may have noticed that the price of these sessions are SIGNIFICANTLY reduced from my normal fees. (It's a savings of almost 60% off my regular fees!!!) The reason for this is because I want every mother or father to have the opportunity to take advantage of these important sessions.

These sessions will only be available until the end of June and I have a limited number of slots available, so hurry up!!

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, these sessions would be the PERFECT Mother's Day or Father's Day gift!!!
