It was only fitting that today’s Friday Photo tip would be about capturing motherhood because this beautiful mama gave birth to her precious little Hazel!
Capturing motherhood is such a beautiful thing to photograph wether you photograph your own life or you photograph clients motherhood moments. For me, its about capturing the intimate moment. A special moment of a mother with her child, a family laughing and playing together, or a moment of snuggles.
Capturing the raw special moments speak volumes and tend to tell a story of moments that were captured to be remembered for a life time.
I will tell a family to pretend like I am not even here at the beginning of a session. I want them to feel like they can be themselves because that is when the best beautiful moments take place.
And for a motherhood tip for you, I ask this beautiful mama what she valued about motherhood:
“I think the privilege of watching these little people that I created become their own person with personalities and preferences that they get to pick. And that I get to eat all of their leftover chicken nuggets.”- Courtney
