This weekend I had the pleasure of doing this wonderful Mommy and Me photo session for Maria and her daughter. I met Maria in college when we were both in Bauer Ambassadors together. It’s been over 6 years since I last saw her, and it was definitely a pleasure to see her with her beautiful baby girl Melanie. We shot this session at Herman Park.I loved shooting Melanie because she had such a great independent spirit about her. We did not confine the shoot to any set posing, and allowed her to be free in her environment. I loved being able to capture her determination in her eyes. This little girl is a go getter. She was on the move and determined to explore her surroundings. Maria is a wonderful mother, and I can see how much she adores her little one. You cannot deny the love and bond between a mother and child, and it is wonderfully captured in these photos. We were able to get some amazing shot even though we got caught in the rain towards the end of it. Take a look at the complete gallery on the link below. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.
