I’m really excited about these! I’ve had a lot of clients inquiring recently about mini sessions, and I toyed briefly with the idea of doing a few Valentine’s Day setups. But this year, something else was tugging at my heart. At a time in my life where I’m sort of swimming in chaos and…just….life, I have this love of simplicity. No surprise obviously. So this year, I’ll be offering something a little different than I ever have: mini sessions with almost no props. No buckets, no frilly tutus, no heart banners or “Be Mine” props. Say what? Who wants that?! Well… though Valentine’s Day is most definitely a Hallmark holiday, we all like to use it as an excuse to tell our friends and family how much we love them. And I can’t think of a sweeter love to capture than that between mother and child!
These sessions will take place on a fluffy white comforter in my studio, with soft pillows and maybe just a couple TINY props (like a favorite book you read or baby’s favorite lovie or blanket). You don’t have to bring any of these, but it would be a sweet addition. For the kids’ outfits, I recommend white or cream onesies (or even diapers if they are babies) or simple white tees/tanks and white shorts. Little boys can be in jeans or any soft colored pants (maybe khaki or tan?). Moms can wear jeans or yoga pants or anything comfy with a white or cream top. Picture snuggling with your littles in bed on a Saturday morning! So no fancy hair styles. I’m going to make you lay in bed with the kids and I might get ONE picture of you all looking at me smiling, but the rest of them are going to be photos of you interacting and just being Mommy. If you’re breastfeeding, you’re welcome to get a couple nursing shots if that’s something you would like.
Because when they are grown, I can bet you that the photos you are going to treasure the most are probably not going to be with the Valentine’s Heart Banner wearing the big pink tutu. But that’s just my opinion. 😉
February 13, 2016 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
