THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING IN THE PHOTO | Phoenix Motherhood + Maternity Photographer
As a Phoenix Motherhood + Maternity photographer and a mama myself, nothing inspires me more than seeing the love and connection between a mother and her child.
As mom’s I know we’re real good about taking photos (thanks super cool iPhone camera) of our kids but how often do you get in the photo with them?
I know, I know…. I have the list of reasons why I don’t want to get into the photo with my girls too. And yes, I’m as guilty as you are about it. But that’s precisely my mission.
The Importance of Getting in the photo
Motherhood sessions are near and dear to my heart and it’s the fuel that continues to light my fire for my art and THE main reason I got into photography in the first place. Motherhood and Maternity photography sessions aren’t actually about you or even for you. These beautiful, loving, sincere, sweet and connected photos are for THEM. Someday (and I promise it’s sooner than you think) your precious Little will ask to see what life looked like when they were in your belly. Will you have images to show them? They don’t only want to see themselves. I promise they want to see you too, mama. Make sure you’re present and accounted for in some of those memories!
I know you don’t want to hear this, but there’s a reason they say “the days are long but the years are short.” Mama - face it - there is gonna come a day when the endless questions and the incessant demand for snacks will come to an end. When they no longer want us to hold their hand or kiss them goodbye. There’s gonna be a day when you realize how much they’ve grown and will crave the chaos that once was #momlife and miss all the tender moments of their childhood. Don’t wait for that day girl… capture today. Remember it always. Because I truly believe every mama needs and deserves imagery like this to cherish forever….
