When I envision a Motherhood session, this is so it. The natural bond of mama and her child, quiet and peaceful. Moments between them that only a child shares with his mama, and her tenderness pouring out in every part of her being toward him. These are moments that are fleeting and ever-changing. Before she blinks, he’s crawling and doesn’t want to be held because he has a whole world to explore. These are the memories she’ll treasure when he’s grown.
When my dear friend and her son got in front of my camera, it was just like magic watching the two of them. We wanted something very natural, beautiful, and the entire session was amazing. Ryder is of course so content in his mama’s arms, and they laughed and played. The weather couldn’t have been any more perfect, and the creek was almost warm. He loved the water and of course the one-on-one time with his mom. His sweet smile and their intimate moments of joy made my photographer heart happy, too.
