It’s that time of year again! Mother’s Day is just around the corner which means it’s time for Mommy & Me mini sessions! I loved doing these sessions last year. So often, moms are the ones behind the camera and never in front of it. We go to look at photo albums and the woman who gave birth to you, raised you, kissed away your pain, held you when you cried, and lifted you up when you needed it most…..is nowhere to be found. It’s as if mom never existed because no one ever bothered to capture her time with her kids. I know I’m guilty of this with my own daughter. Birthday parties, holidays, family outings – you’d think I was never there. The only proof I have of my existence in my child’s life is a few low-quality selfies taken with a cell phone.
That was until last year when I finally said enough was enough, and got some professional family pictures taken with my mom and my daughter. These are now some of my most treasured pictures of me and my daughter, and I look forward to the day that I can get more done as she gets older. But that session made me think that I’m not the only mom out there who doesn’t have pictures with her own kids. I decided it was time to fix that! Last year I held my first official Mommy & Me mini sessions, and I absolutely loved it (and so did the moms that booked a session!).
Which is why I’m excited to say that I’m doing these mini sessions again this year! The mini sessions will be held on Saturday, May 6th at Nathan’s Garden in Hanover, New Hampshire. Time slots are limited and will only be open from 3pm to 7pm. I decided to change it up this year and, instead of offering one set price, I am offering 3 different packages to choose from when booking your session. Mommy & Me mini sessions will start at $125.00 this year, and payment is due in full to book your session. Each session is 20 minutes long, and you will receive 8-10 edited images in an online gallery (amount of digitals you receive depends on package) along with a print release for any digitals you purchase.
To get more information about the sessions, please visit the event page on Facebook, or check out our Mommy & Me Mini Session Guide. Here you’ll find a link to the Mommy & Me mini session booking form, information about pricing, and a gallery of pictures from a Mommy & Me mini session at Nathan’s Garden from last year.
I hope to see you all there, and remember time is running out so book today!
