As Gail Tsukiyama once said, “Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There’s no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.”
Shooting families, specifically mothers and their children, I get to witness this bond from behind my lens. The energy between children and their mothers in all walks of life is never short of beautiful.
Daniella is a mother from the San Francisco Bay Area and I recently was able to set up a shoot with her and her adorable, one and half year old son. We gave Daniella the full glamour treatment from hair, make up and styling! Mothers deserve all the reward in the world so I was more than happy to treat this mom to a full day of pampering and photoshoot fun.
After the shoot, I was able to ask Daniella a few questions about her experience. I first wanted to get Daniella’s perspective on taking photos with her son and what led her to schedule the shoot.
