Mommy & Me Session

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

The sun hung low in the sky as I watched Ava and her mama snuggle, whisper and smile to each other. These sessions are so special and sweet and they make my heart soar.
Jennifer said she would meet me wherever I wanted- and I couldn’t help but bring her to a large open field I found so we could play with some sun flare and light! Jen is a fellow photographer, so she understand not only my desire to chase the light, but also the importance of stepping out from behind the lens and getting in front of it! 

A Mommy and Me Session is the perfect time to really focus on you and your babies! Jen made it a special date for just her daughter and herself and I loved that idea. She has two boys in addition to Ava, but some times you just need to highlight that special mommy-daughter relationship. A session like this gave Ava private time with mommy and really brought out their closeness- it came across my camera so clearly. Their bond is special and strong.
When I got home, I poured over the images I had captured and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. As I began to edit, tears started. I know. I’m a sap, but I can’t help it. Jen has carved out a unique place in my heart, and she trusted me photographer to photographer. I edited and smiled and giggled and cried. Their bond just moved me and I hope it moves you too. 

Here are a few favorites from their session. It was difficult to narrow down what I wanted to share- so many precious, private moments were captured and I’m grateful they shared them with me.
