The Motherhood Pop Up is back again! I held these sessions last year, and this year I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to offer these Bay Area motherhood photography sessions again. If I’m being completely honest. Not because I didn’t love them or because they weren’t wonderful. I just felt like I needed to decide what I wanted to take on this year. But then I read an article about how mothers are often left out of images, and how it’s not necessarily a recent issue either. (You can read that article here) And then I was inspired to offer this sweet pop up again! 

I’m seriously so thrilled to do these motherhood sessions again! They’re the sweetest sessions that let mothers shine and allow them to get some timeless, darling, and beautiful images with your children. I’ll have my backdrop set up outdoors and you can just snuggle and play with your kids while I take some darling images of you all together. There will be some sort of floral element too: whether that’s a floral install, a beautiful arrangement, or a DIY bouquet element, you’ll just have to wait and see! 

I’ll say one more thing, I greatly admire mothers that make a point to get in the photos with their children. I always love it when a mother contacts me to book a session of just her and her kids. Not because I don’t think dads deserve to be in photos, because they do! But because we so often don’t get those darling candid photos with our kids. So if you feel like you need some more photos with your children, with you actually in them then make sure to snag a spot at the pop up this year!
