5th Annual Motherhood Event Recap

Capturing The Essence of Motherhood

This was my 5th year hosting my annual Motherhood Event and it turned out to be lovelier than ever. It was a beautiful, two-day petite session experience dedicated to celebrating and capturing the beauty of motherhood. I am always thinking of new ways to make my clients feel extra loved and special, and this event was no exception! Each mama got a fresh bouquet of flowers and a generous swag bag full of motherhood-inspired product from local vendors to take home. We had fresh floral crowns made for mamas and daughters to wear, yummy sweet treats, and a gorgeous setting for mamas and babes to have their portraits done.

A Day Full Of Memory Making For Mamas and Littles

This annual event is something I look forward to the most every year! Celebrating the beauty of your unique motherhood journey is what I am so passionate about as a photographer, and I cannot wait to see how each mama who attended adorns her walls and home with her precious memories from this event.

A Two-Day Petite Session Event Full Of Pampering For Mamas

We had 32 beautiful mamas participate this year – several were repeat clients and I had lots of new faces as well! This year, I added a new rattan cocoon chair which gave a whimsical and bohemian feel in the portraits. We also had flower crowns made for mamas and babes to wear in their portraits styled by Kendra’s Florals. Blush & Adore and Noir Beaute came out to pamper our mamas with petite hair and make up, adding to the luxury portrait experience that I love to treat all of my clients to.

I am drawn to emotion filled images, beautiful light, and soft neutral colors. It’s my passion to capture authentic beauty, family love, and connection in all of my imagery. Motherhood is such a special season of a woman’s life, and the little years of raising your children are so fleeting. Being able to document those sweet and intimate moments of mother and babe is such a gift to present mothers who never want to forget what it was like to be on that journey. Contact me today to inquire about our motherhood, maternity, and family lifestyle sessions.
