Mama Sessions

These sessions highlight mamas in any stage of motherhood. I feel passionately about seeking the deep beauty in my subjects and I have a special heart for mothers, maybe because I am one and have felt so incredibly changed and defined by motherhood. What I search for in mothers is not the fact that they are mothers, I don't capture things that will point to the fact of their motherhood.  But instead the qualities that make them the beautiful and fascinating people they have become in concert with motherhood, through motherhood. Each mama is bringing a unique beauty and strength through her journey. I hope to offer a unique counterpoint to the glamorized maternity session or the stiff formality of the family portrait and instead offer women a chance to be seen in motherhood as their own powerful, beautiful, committed selves through gracious portraits. The lovely mama in this session is Jessica who graciously shared her mama session with her sweet son Milo.
