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 🙂  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!
