naaz + mom { mother & daughter images: family mini session }

This session is really close to my heart.  Mother & daughter images are something I wish I had more of (including of myself and my mom), and was thrilled to hear that Naaz picked her mom for this session to capture some wonderful mother & daughter images.

Naaz was the lucky winner of a contest I held on my Facebook page.  For those not in the know, I hold contests on my Facebook page every once in a while where the prize is usually a free session of some kind – and if you DIDN’T know, I suggest you go and “like” the page immediately for future contests.  ;)  There were a lot of entries for this contest and the winner was chosen at random; Naaz seemed over the moon to win the session and decided to take the chance to capture some fun mother & daughter images.  We planned a short session to hit up two locations, Prince’s Island Park and a spot close to Rotary Park that’s very famous for a wonderful view of downtown.  As it turns out, there were a ton of people at Prince’s Island Park also enjoying the wonderful weather, and it made a perfect scene for some mother & daughter images.  Naaz and her mother made the comment that they have a very similar photo of the two of them with geese (similar to the one below); it was great to recreate something for them from their past.  :)

My mother is very camera shy, so getting her to do this kind of session would be like pulling teeth.  In the past when attempting photographs as a family, she’s been known to let her eyes wander and miss the lens completely.  But as we get older, the importance of these kinds of photos only grows deeper.  I know how hard it is to be in front of a camera – you feel vulnerable and exposed, but having these images is such a priceless thing.  I’m so glad Naaz chose her mother for the session and that we got to capture these mother & daughter images for them to enjoy for years and years to come.
