It’s time for my annual St Louis Mother’s Day Mini Sessions! These are absolutely my favorite photo sessions all year. As Mom’s it is so easy to not be in so many photos. This is why I dedicate a full week of photo sessions to Moms and their children.
My Approach to St Louis Mother’s Day Mini Sessions
This session is all about the relationship between Mom and her child(ren). The majority of the session will be spent playing with and loving each other. My goal is to keep Mom happy and relaxed. I’ve found that the best way to keep Mom happy is to make sure the children are happy. This will be the most fun that have had at any photo session, I promise. We will start of with a few posed photos, but we will quickly transition into playtime.
During playtime, I will help coach Mom and the children, but it should all feel very natural. Mom’s are great at loving on their kids, so there is not much directing from me!

My Personal Mom & Me Session
If you follow me on Facebook you may have seen this post where I highlighted a photo from my own personal Mom & Me photo session. In case you missed it, here it is!
“The boys and I had A Mom and Me lifestyle session a few weeks ago by the talented Gretchen A Willis.
Although we are not looking at the camera this is one of my most favorite images.
Jack has grown so tall you can see he now walks in stride with me, but still holds my hand because he wants to.
Jace still is happy to be in my arms and always runs his hand through my hair. I fan feel him doing it just looking at this photo and hope I still do 20 years from now.
My message to Mom’s – Get in the frame! Even if you don’t have makeup on or your hair isn’t perfect. Don’t sweat the small stuff and be present in your family’s documented history.”
