“I want to remember how wonderful our life is right now.”
This was one of my favourite sessions of the past year. A session celebrating a beautiful mama and who she is in this moment.
It poured rain the day of our session. We could hear the raindrops pounding on the skylight of her kitchen as we were chatting while my hair & make-up artist finished up. And yet she was still so down to earth and easy-going. We set up in her garage and got the first few nervous images out of the way. Then she busted out these gorgeous blue eyes and hint of a smile and we were off.
We caught a break in the rain and headed out quickly for a change of scenery. And even though the session was primarily for her, we took a few minutes for some portraits with her babe, because every mama needs a beautiful portrait with her little ones.
And. because this is Vancouver, the skies opened up when we got out there. I am so thankful she rolled with it anyway, the little raindrops clinging to her hair are stunning.
We connected over struggling to raise daughters who value more than outward appearances and princesses, life choices, and just being the best mamas we can be. She is strong and confident and truly beautiful both inside and out. The images were a gift for her husband for a milestone birthday but I’m hoping they were as much as gift to herself as they were to him.
