Being a photographer and being a mom can sometimes make it difficult to make an appearance in front of the camera. Well since my newest son Tommy was born in March, I've been itching to have some photos taken of boys with their momma (me!) Instead of stressing over the details, I decided to make a trip to the park turn into our personalized photo session, complete with a tripod, self-timer and an adorable assistant.
My son John is quite the budding assistant. At only three years old, he helped me achieve these portraits and I couldn't be happier with the results. I didn't want to worry about hair or makeup or if every hair on my child's head was in it's perfect place (haha, not usually with John!) I wanted a formal-ish snapshot of what we look like day-to-day. Enjoy this look into our little family, my heart wandering outside my body and the reason that I strive to be the best I can be!
