Mommy/Daughter photo shoots are so special because they can really capture the bond and love that moms pour into their children every day. With mother’s day coming up, I am excited to do more of these because you hard-working mamas deserve to get all dressed up and in front of the camera with your kiddos!
This mommy/daughter photoshoot was so much fun for a number of reasons! I did this beautiful mom’s maternity photo shoot back when this sweet girl was in her belly. I then did their baby photos in their beautiful home for more of a lifestyle photography session. Now here we are in my Seattle studio doing some mommy daughter photography! Every time I get to see this sweet mom I have so much fun. Her easy going attitude for every photoshoot has made it so easy and fun for all of us as we keep it natural with posing but also nail down those pretty little details.
This age with her daughter is a lot more wiggly than any other photo shoot we have done as she was really wanting to explore. Which I LOVE!! Whenever I work with 1-2 year old toddlers, I really let them take the lead so I can capture their sweet personalities. This photo shoot in particular, we played a lot of hide and seek! It got a smile every time when I would pop up from behind the bed from or she would come out of the curtains.
If you have a toddler and are nervous for your upcoming photoshoot whether it be maternity, newborn, or family photography, I would really encourage you to follow the lead of those little independent humans and cue in to what is making them happy!
Here are some of my favorites from this mommy/daughter photo shoot. Enjoy!
