There hasn’t been a time in my life that has gone by faster than the time that I have spent being a mother. The days and nights can be long – but the weeks, months and years go by far too fast. Let’s cherish all the little moments we have with our children and capture the sweet details with images that will not only last your lifetime, but for many generations to come.

I invite you to join me for a special event Sunday, April 26th in Folsom CA. This is for mothers at any stage. Whether you are expecting, have toddlers or teens we will capture you and your child or children (of any age) in an intimate setting focusing on the sweet connections a mother shares with her children.

When you arrive, you will have the option to have hair and make-up enhancements done (must be selected at time of booking) then you will be able to choose from over 80 gowns specifically curated for our studio to wear during your session.

You will then have a petite portrait session full of snuggles of you and your sweet babe/ies. There will be flower crowns for you to use during your session as well as other floral backdrops.

And to make your time with us even more special, every mom will leave with a swag bag full of items from local artists and businesses.

The details:

5-10 minute session with you and your child/children

5 high resolution images or you will have the option to upgrade to the entire gallery for an additional $100

Access to our client wardrobe which has over 80 gowns for moms and limited children’s clothing

Flower crowns for you and your girls!

Refreshments before and after the shoot

I will have an assistant with me but if your child is very shy or extra rambunctious, I’d have dad or someone come along to help keep the kids entertained, especially if you are doing hair and make-up.

The fine print:

These sessions are for mothers and their children only – no grandparents, cousins or dads

If you have more than four children please let me know as soon as possible

$300 ($350 if doing hair and makeup) is due at the time of booking to reserve your spot

Hair and make-up is an additional $50 and must be selected at time of booking

You will be able to select five images from your gallery or you may purchase the entire gallery for an additional $100

Galleries will be delivered within three weeks of the session
