This was my first “Mama and Me” session and oh my goodness… If you’re a mama and you don’t have photos of just you with your babies, you should really consider doing it! There was very little pressure for these photos and I wanted to make sure to capture Betsy and Lennox’s relationship and bond. I didn’t want to interfere with any natural reactions and captured everything as it happened. We pretty much got to hang out, let baby Lennox run around, and took photos of the moments as we let them unfold.
Betsy is a photographer herself and was stoked when I told her I brought a couple film cameras along with me to the shoot. I was able to finally shoot some Psychedelic Blues film on my 35mm camera and got some really cool, creative shots of these two. I also shot a roll of Ektar film on my Mamiya 645 film camera, so you’ll see a mixture of the both of those as well as digital shots below.
I hope you all enjoy this post! I look forward to booking more of these intimate sessions in the future.
