Good morning Lovelies 🙂
Portraits of a mom/daughter session with Ursula T.
When I do a mom/daughter session, I always do individual portraits of mum and individual portraits of daughter. Then I do together portraits.
I do this for every outfit change and the end result is always spectacular.
What I love about this, is the interaction when posing separately, there is always encouragement, sometimes a bit of teasing, laughs and oh wow moments. The way my subjects look at each other with admiration and love, this is all part of the bonding experience. Leah was saying to Pam, show teeth mom, show teeth. Very cute.
Leah is thirteen (same age as my daughter Angelique), and we are doing this portrait XL, framed in silver. Angelique has her own portrait in my studio which sits above my working station, so I get to see her everyday. It is magnificent!
When Angelique first saw it (her portrait was a surprise from me for her 13th birthday) she burst into tears and said “mom, it’s so beautiful, I’m so beautiful!” and then he said “it’s so big, I love it”. Naturally she can only inherit it when I am gone (hopefully not soon), so for now she sees it when I get her on the weekends with me. I can only imagine how she will look at this one day and not only remember me as her mom for taking it, but also her youth that was captured so beautifully.
This is the value of a portrait and there is no price tag for this moment frozen in time forever.
So little Leah (well not so little), may this be a reminder of your youth, your amazing journey into womanhood, a reminder of your incredibly special day here in studio spent with your mum.
May it remind you all your days how beautiful you are (and also me and pets that loved you so much).
Aaaah, I love what I do, with all my heart and soul 😍😍😍
You are so beautiful mamma 😉 Thank you for trusting me to photograph your legacy, thank you for supporting my dream, my passion, my business.
