This is the second time that I’ve gotten to take photos for Addie and I was so excited to see her again! Her boys and so sweet and adorable, and as a motherhood photographer sessions like this bring me so much joy! She snagged one of the spots at my Motherhood Pop-Up this spring and I am so glad that she did. What a joy it was to capture some sweet moments between her and her mom, as well as her boys! From the perspective of a San Francisco Motherhood Photographer, sessions like this are pure gold! 

I really enjoyed the fact that she brought her mom along for some photos, since she was in town visiting for the weekend. What a fun gift to give your mom! I hope to hold these sessions again next year and hope that more people bring along their mama’s for photos with them too. I set up a simple backdrop and got some flowers from a local shop. The simplicity of these sessions really has inspired me. I love beautiful locations, but I also just love a simple backdrop for photos- it helps the people inthe photos to shine even brighter. 

Addie chose a great wardrobe for these sessions, I loved her olive green dress and her boys simple outfits too. They were all barefoot for the session which is exactly what I envisioned when i thought these up. Just moms and their kids, barefoot, on the ground. Playing and laughing and loving on each other. How everyday is spent, with each other, just having a good time.
