mom goals. // Stoddard Family MINI SESSION

October 16, 2017

This playful mini-session at dusk was really more than I could have hoped for. Perfect outfits (that Rachel Parcell dress though!), playful kiddos and a patient Mom + Dad πŸ™‚Β  This is the second time I’ve photographed this darling family and I just can’t get enough of them!

I’ve been a mom for four years now. I’m pretty sure I still know almost nothing and I’m always pretending like I know what I’m doing (spoiler: I don’t).

But one thing I do know: surround yourself with good mothers.

All of my fears, doubts, and uncertainty in motherhood have been alleviated when I have spent time around mothers I admire. Those mothers somehow answer my unasked questions, make me feel strong when I feel weak, and then send me home with a batch of homemade cookies.

Being around Jenni is like that. Her goodness radiates around her, and I can see it shining through these images. She is a loving, gentle mother who can bring out the best smiles and happiest giggles.

and I think the world could use a little more of that, don’t you think?

Possibly one of my favorite mother-son portraits. His scrunched eyes, his fist, Jenni’s perfect red lip, hair blowing in the breeze. SOMEONE FRAME THIS NOW!

That smile you make after you get butterflies from your husband…
