One-on-One Portraits – Mother’s Day 2018

One day, as I was photographing a mother and child, I was amazed at how the intimate setting of one-on-one brought out different expressions and revelations of personality. It’s something raw and precious that I decided to pursue and capture.

Here are the results:

My little girl is very floppy and silly when she is around me, but when I kiss her, she seems to achieve inner peace.

I love my boy’s default expression: indignant. He is my sweet child. It’s like I’m hugging a bag of sugar.

Heather and I took turns taking pictures of each other and each other’s children, and it looks like we were happy little models, but there was actually a lot of bargaining and bribing that was involved – also, some blackened Oreo teeth.

Her daughter was jostling about and a lot of the photos was Heather trying to contain her, but I love the feeling of movement and life in these pictures.

Also, with the aid of a teddy bear, we have this quiet moment:

I love that you can see the bedroom window reflected in their eyes. This is where they sit sometimes to look outside together.

Ashley has three children who are so different from one another. Each child brings out a different side of her.

Her son is full of energy, but also so very sweet. The expression on Ashley’s face as he kisses her melts my heart.

Her youngest son spends a lot of time cuddling just like this with his mom. It’s like he never left the womb.

One thing about her and her daughter is they share the same kind heart.

This year, for Mother’s day, I’m offering one-on-one portrait sessions to capture the relationship you share with your loved one. If you choose the package that includes a print, here is the end result:

The best part about these sessions are they are in-home, so your child can feel more relaxed.
