Mommy & Me: Tab & Mya
Where do I begin. A Beautiful Day and two beautiful people. I loved the idea of doing a Mommy and Me photo session. Little girls look up to their mothers and they often see themselves in them as well. It is so important to tell your little girls that they are beautiful so that they don’t have to rely on the world to do it. Building self-esteem at an early age is so important.
Something I learned from Tab was that the dress her little girl is wearing is the same one she had made (years before Mya was here) for her flower girl to wear in her wedding to Mya’s dad. She had spent weeks trying to find the perfect dress for Mya and when her now teenage flower girl gave her this dress she knew it was the one.
We had such a good time getting these shots. I love the candid photo’s the most. The feeling captured from a candid shot is always real and honest. It tells a story about the day. Tabs big smiles show so much about her personality. She is so fun to be around. I can’t wait to work with them again. They make my job super easy.
Watching these two interact with each other definitely made me question why in the world I haven’t made mommy and me photos with my three girls.
Miss Mya took a minute to warm up to me but once she did we had a great time. She loves to pose and climb trees. I love a girl that can dress-up and get dirty at the same time.
This pose was all her. I was focused on taking her mom’s picture, I turned around and she was just waiting for me.
One lesson I learned is to let kids be kids during a shoot and they will give you everything you need without even trying. I hope you enjoyed.
Thanks for stopping by and please come back and see what we are up to next!
