“I’m everywhere in my children’s young lives, and yet I have very few pictures of me with them. Someday I won’t be here, but I want them to have pictures of me. I want them to see the way I looked at them, see how much I loved them. I am not perfect to look at and I am not perfect to love, but I am perfectly their mother.
When I look at pictures of my own mother, I don’t look at cellulite or hair debacles. I just see her — her kind eyes, her open-mouthed, joyful smile, her familiar clothes. That’s the mother I remember. My mother’s body is the vessel that carries all the memories of my childhood. I always loved that her stomach was soft, her skin freckled, her fingers long. I didn’t care that she didn’t look like a model. She was my mama.
So I want to be in the picture, to give my kids that visual memory of me. I want them to see how much I am here, how my body looks wrapped around them in a hug, how loved they are.”
How many photos do you have with your children? When your kids look back at the photographs of your family’s legacy, how often will they see you? Allison Tate’s words above, about mums being in photos with their children, have inspired me to create a special, one-off deal specially for mums and their kids to get in the picture together! I’ll document a tradition or activity that you and your kids regularly do together, or anything that is special to all of you.
These special Mummy and Me sessions are only available until Mother’s day and this deal is strictly limited to only 15 sessions, so be quick to secure your spot! Get in touch to find out more and book your session.
