As moms, our days are filled with close up details… tiny toes, nuzzled cheeks, squishy arms wrapped around our necks.  Such loving, tender, fleeting moments that we want to cherish forever.

Motherhood mini sessions are here to help you capture those tiny details for a lifetime.  These sessions aren’t about looking at the camera or “posing”.  These sessions are about the raw, the intimate, the loving moments between a mama and her baby (no matter how old he or she may be!).

Book a session for yourself or gift a session to a mama that you love!

April 25      $100      Victorville, CA
Price includes 30min of session time, 10-15 images in a downloadable gallery, and print release.

Leah is getting so big, and such a sweet girl! It was such a treat to see her and her parents again.  I can’t wait to see her at her 1 year session!

Tell us your story:  We met in high school, married ten years later, moved to Chicago, and came home to California pregnant with our adorable little girl Leah. Bryan travels for work frequently so I depend on my parents a lot for help and they have been amazing!

How has your life changed in the last 6mo? Our lives have changed drastically! Before we would go out to dinner all the time, see movies regularly, and stay out late with friends. Now our weekends consist of take out food, playing with Leah, and hoping to watch an entire movie at home while she sleeps before we are too exhausted. Honestly we wouldn’t have it any other way!

What new things is your baby up to?  New skills, likes or dislikes, quirks? Leah just started sitting up by herself and loves to play that way. When she falls she cries until she is set back up. She also just got her first two teeth! Very exciting but miserable at the same time:) She is a loving little girl who likes to dance when being held up, laugh hysterically at something one day and look at you like you are crazy when you do it the next day, full of spirit and knows exactly what she wants and is not afraid to let you know when she is unhappy!

What is your favorite thing about being a parent? It is incredible to watch her develop and change from a tiny newborn I was scared to hold to an actual little person with a personality! It is amazing the emotions I have now – I have never been filled with more love and worry. Everyone told me there is nothing like becoming a parent and now I know what they mean – it is so hard to put into words!

What advice do you have for parents of a 6mo? While we love Leah more than anything, she is definitely a tough little girl. She fiercely hates to sleep, is very impatient, and super emotional. I call her the Queen of 30 Minute Naps which makes it difficult to get anything done in a day. My advice is something I have to remind myself daily – focus on all of the positive things because there are so many! Her health is the most important thing and everything else eventually will get better! Every time I need a reminder I just look at that adorable toothless (now two teeth!) smile!
