Britt + Sidney

 

Mothers and their children will always be my favorite thing to photograph. No fancy outfits, locations or poses. Just a mom being a mom. Think of the favorite images you have of your mother, and I guarantee they aren’t your favorite because of what she’s wearing or if she had her makeup done. You love them because she is beaming from ear to ear, or wearing that soft sweater you used to cuddle up in, or cradling you in her arms. You love the photos because you love the person in them. Remember that if you’re having pictures taken this fall. Your kids just want you, their mom. You are beautiful just as you are.

Britt and I met up last minute at 10am in 40 degree weather and right before they left Sidney had covered himself in paint. Kids have a funny way of doing that. Your real life deserves to be photographed too.

Rana + Lulu Pearl Anderson, IN

I spent the afternoon with Rana, Lulu and Apple Pie the pup at their 1800s estate in the middle of nowhere, Indiana. We ate wild violets, rejoiced over super special top secret news, picked lilacs, frolicked through the fields and laughed so incredibly much. Such a special place in my heart for this little family I love so much.    Portra400 dev/scan TheFINDLab
