How is a Moments of Motherhood session different than a typical portrait type session?
I am going to come into your house and your life for a part of your day to document it exactly as it happens. I will be me documenting you and your child or children going about your day as you normally would. No getting dressed up, no getting ready or prepping yourselves, no cleaning the house, or finding a location. There will be no posing, no matching outfits, no dressing up, and prepping for days. All you have to do is be there and be your wonderful selves. It is my job to show you how awesome that all is, and I am excited to do just that!
So should I clean my house, plan outfits for the kids, ask them to act a certain way?
No, no, and no. The idea behind me coming to you and documenting you with your children is to capture you as a mother with you children, exactly as you are on any given day. The good, the bad, the hard, the boring, the loving. All of it.
What is going to happen when you come over, how will it work?
I will arrive at your house and talk with you and the kids. I may not even take my camera out right away because I want to spend a few minutes getting to know everyone and letting the kids become more comfortable with me. I will talk to them, maybe play with them for a bit. After that, you will go about your regular day and I will document moments as they happen. I won't exactly be a fly on the wall, I will interact and talk with you during our time together, but I won't ask you to do anything specific or change anything. I won't move items in your house or adjust your clothes or hair.
But my house is not clean enough, I want to lose weight first, I only have one child, our days are probably too boring...
The point of these sessions is that none of these things matter when it comes to the fact that what you do, who you are as a mother, and the time you are spending with you children is beautiful and worth it. This session will be the physical proof of that. The memories of exactly how your time together was at a certain point in their childhood will be something that you and your children will look back at and cherish. None of the things that you might be worrying about now will be what you notice when you look at these photos later in life. You will see how you and you child loved each other and spent your days together. However, these pictures are not just to be looked back on, you will look at them now and see how important you are as a mother and how worth it this time with your children is right now
