The bond between a mother and her children is unlike any other, and a bond that can be beautifully captured with a camera.
This gorgeous mum wanted to capture her relationship with her teenage daughters now, to hold this moment in time forever so that she could reflect and enjoy these precious memories before they grow into adulthood and spread their wings.
She came to me with ideas which were excellent, achievable and appropriate for their dynamics. She was concerned that her girls may think the photo shoot would be boring or that one of the girls with a more introverted nature may not wish to participate.
We talked about clothing to suit the style of photography, and their personalities as this would be a key to relaxing them and making them comfortable.
We discussed makeup as mum was keen for this for herself. I suggested the girls have some also, to help with feeling included in the process and also that is would increase their confidence. Our in-house makeup artist @makeupbymillieo is excellent at creating looks to suit the occasion, for mum a smokey eye style and for the girls it was a light and luminious, very natural just to enhance their natural teen beauty.
The photo session included mum's best friend. She really wanted to include her as she was an incredible support to her and her girls and wished to honour this with some photos of them all together.
Once we were into the photo session, any thoughts of introversion or boredom were forgotten and it went like a dream, we all had a lot of fun and laughs. Teen hair may have needed to be a particular way, but to all mums out there......hair is so minor really, it's the expression, the connection and the involvement that you want. A little fringe twist here or there, or a little curl kicking out is only ever going to be noticed by you.....or to be honest, you will probably forget once you see your gorgeous childs face.
The results spoke for themselves and I had one very happy mum. She had everything she wanted, photos of her with her beautiful girls, her best friend and some glamorous ones of herself.
I’ve recently been reminded that life is truly precious and filled with moments we sometimes take for granted. I've always wanted to be in photos with my children and realize how important these photo sessions are.
