BELLA SOL HAPPENINGS

One Day, your Children will Look for Photos of You

Your babies will be having their own babies before you know it. 1988 seems like a few years ago, not decades! Now I'm looking through boxes of photos searching for pictures of her and I together. No wonder she cut me off from practicing portraits on her! I was so busy capturing her life, that I barely exist in those boxes.

My baby, day after my 20th birthday, 1988. It's the only one they took and it looks like a double exposure!

My baby's baby's Ultrasound. They've improved a LOT. As has my portraiture!

It seems like yesterday it was back in the film days that I was taking piles and piles of snapshots of Danielle growing up. I started doing portraits on her when she was 10, but WHY didn't I think to get in the shot with her? So now I'm looking for studio portraits of her and I and I have one. ONE.

I remember having to hold her hands because she wouldn't stay still... lol.

She'll have LOADS of photos of herself when I'm gone but nowhere near as many of us together.  Of me and my Mom... none. A couple of photo booth shots...

Here I am a Photographer preaching about the importance of having professional portraits done with our children and I have scant. But that's why I'm trying to change that! Don't let that happen to you! It's so common to have portraits of our children because we want those photos for ourselves but what about what our children will want when we're gone? They will look for photos of you! Do you exist in yours?  

How many photos do you have of you with your Mom? Do they portray who you are? Do they capture the love between you? It's time for Mom to exist in photographs. And what better day than Mother's Day?

A session with me will be designed with wardrobe consultation and posing and a fun day to capture the love between you and your family. Mom's and daughters get their hair and makeup done and get access to my wardrobe! My beautiful tulle skirts fit all. 

How do you think CJ and Dior feel every time they look at their portraits? Imagine it's you and your loved one in the picture. How does it make you feel? Adored? Important? We all want that.

I was blown away by what I captured between these two! Do you think this is something that will be passed down to Dior when her Mom is gone? Absolutely!  She will treasure these prints for generations. Will the photos you cherish that are stored on your phone last for generations?

Click on the Contact tab on the left to book a free consultation! Sessions can be gifted to a Mom you would like to honor. But hurry... there's very little time left to book to be able to get your prints by Mother's Day!
