Be honest now- how many photos do you have of yourself and your little ones? I'm not talk about selfies in your PJ's on a saturday morning but actual, in-focus, beautiful portraits.
I actually don't have that many- a lot of people ask me if I have LOADS of photos of Rose and actually- yes I have quite a few (when I can get her to sit still for 5 seconds) but barely any of both of us together which makes me sad.
this is why during my sessions I always try to include parents in some shots- whether you look horrific, you haven't had your nails done, you are covered in baby vomit and your hair is greasy... It doesn't matter. When your baby is all gorwn up and you aren't around anymore they won't notice any of these things. All they will see is their beautiful mama holding them at a week old... a photo that isn't pixelated, grainy and blown out with the lighting!
