There is an endearing tenderness in the love of a mother to a son that transcends all other affections of the heart. -Washington Irving

This mommy and me session captures all the love that transcends the other affections of the heart.

What We Love:

Kelli: This session happened on a moody weather day. As I was driving, it started raining but when I arrived it was sunny and humid. I followed them around and observed them being mother and son. There were a couple of times where I asked them to “stand here” or “Look at each other” but for the most part, they were being their adorable selves. What I loved most about this session is that Mom was all about her son. She was pushing swings, crawling underneath the playground {chasing her son}, and going down slides while he waits for her. The love she has for him radiates out of her and he adores his mother. It’s definitely one of my favorite sessions to date.

Rachel and Lisa:  They are only small for a little while.  It’s so important to capture those little memories between mother and child.  We appreciate the pointers Kelli shared with her submission on how to get littles to interact with their parent and with the photographer, it gives our readers some insight on how to get natural, gorgeous images like these that Kelli has shared.  The love of mother and child is geuinely captured here with gorgeous light and beautiful color.

Location: Conway Riverwalk in Conway, SC. It’s a historical location dating back to the 1700’s and is simply beautiful.

Gear: Sony a6000 with Sigma 30mm 1.4 lens and Sigma 19mm 2.8 lens.
