Moms, Join Us - We Need You

“Oh Kat, none of me today. I am not photo-worthy. I was up all night, and I don’t feel I should be part of these...  I just want portraits of my daughter.”  

"Me?  Why would you want to photograph me?  I'll pass today - I'm not prepared."  

"No thanks, I don't want to be a part of these portraits.  Maybe next time I'll have a chance to lose some of this weight."

"Oh gosh, I don't have the right outfit... enough makeup..."  and the excuses, insecurity, and turn-downs continue...

BLAH BLAH BLAH is what I hear as a photographer, as my heart breaks and I so desperately want to hug you, move you into the frame, and photograph you.  So your child can capture this moment, with the person they love the most, always & always.  Because you are perfect, beautiful, and absolutely wanted in this photograph.

As a busy mother, I'm sure you're more often than not the family photographer - which means you are behind the camera documenting those smiles, the vacations, and all the in between moments that showcase the legacy you have worked so hard to create.  You pour your heart and soul into your family & when your children grow older, they need to be able to look back at their childhood photographs and see you - your love, your face.  They should be able to see what absolute joy they brought to your life, the moments that made them who they are, and all the in between moments too...

I get it.  I've been there.  And I have missed so many moments as well.  Let's change that.

So moms – no matter how “unworthy” of being photographed you feel, or "unprepared" you feel you are - step in the photographs. Smile. Love on your child. Love on your family.  Let them love on you...  You and your love is so, so beautiful. Because Mom, life is better with you!  So Moms, Join Us - We Need You to step into the photograph for you, for your children, and for their children... to make this moment complete.
