An open letter to all of us once again as Mother's Day approaches:
TO OUR MOTHERS: You must exist in photos for your children. One day, they will be grown and those photos will be priceless. Remind yourselves of your beauty when all you can see is theirs.
TO OUR CHILDREN, AND MOST ESPECIALLY, TO OUR DAUGHTERS: You must get momma out from behind the lens and in front of it. You are her focus and always will be; remind her of her beauty when all she can see is yours. Remind her of the woman she is. Be there to share it with her. Celebrate your beauty as women and as mothers, together. One day, the cards will shuffle and those photos will be priceless.
TO OUR WOMEN: We MUST exist in photos for our families, our children, ourselves. The time is NOW -- not when you're 10lbs lighter, not when your hair is longer, not when your teeth are whiter or when you have the perfect outfit -- there is no guarantee of tomorrow. Exist. Give them something to look back on, to hold and to continue to love.
TO OUR MEN: Encourage her to do this. Remind her she is beautiful and valued and that she belongs to a network of other beautiful, strong women. Stand back and watch her come home validated and happy.

Still not sure whether you should book? See what Tracy W. had to say about her Mother-Daughter session:
With no particular special excuse needed, mother and daughter duo, Tracy and Sarah, decided to spend some quality time together as women and treat themselves to a Mother-Daughter Portrait Couture Session. They were first pampered with hair and makeup by Richardson Hair Design and 2bu Esthetics & Makeup Artistry and then confidently stepped in front of the camera to enjoy some smiles, laughs and good spirits. Thank-you, Tracy & Sarah for the trust you so obviously extended me and for allowing me to capture and showcase the beauty that lies within.
