Family Photography {Mommy & Me}

Mommy & Me Session

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

I’ve been working on some fun new stuff for ANP. I love the idea of family pictures “just because”. To capture seasons in our lives, to document, and to share special moments. A Mommy and Me session is exactly that- a great way to capture individual bonds with your children and document them at this stage. Last weekend I had the opportunity to work with this darling family and I am so glad we were able to capture sweet Hannah’s little personality.
When I first brought up the idea with her mama, I had a specific vision. She was open to my ideas and immediately went searching for the perfect dress for Hannah. It’s always fun to go shopping and pull your whole idea together from what you imagined in your mind.
When she got to the session I had a few bows and headbands, but she pulled out this stunning floral crown and I had to have it! Lucky for me, Hannah loved to wear it too, so it all came together more perfectly than I had even planned for! I love it when that happens! 

Hannah was so precious too- she was ready to go run and play but wanted to stay near mom. She was so proud of her dress too! She wanted to spin and show it off in between catching snuggles with mom. 

I wanted to try a few spots in the field for a few different looks. Some times it’s nice to change up the scenery to get the feeling of two different sessions but also create a different mood and feeling. Some sun flare, and some with that beautiful golden hour lighting among the baby pine trees. I couldn’t tell you which images are my favorite, only to say that good lighting is so important.
And these? These are what it’s all about any way- those private little moments they share with me while I think about light and how it all comes together.
We had fun and these will be memories they will cherish forever.
