Maybe your biz is doing ok but some things are just not working and you can’t figure out how to get it all to gel. Or you are just busy, busy, busy and burned out. You can’t imagine continuing at this pace. Are you working your tail off but not making any money? Maybe you know you need to increase your pricing or develop collections but just don’t know how to go about it. Well…I have a solution for you! It’s called The Thriving Photographer.

I have know Michelle since our oldest children were babies. Our kids are growing up and go to different schools  so I don’t get to see her as much. A true sign that our kids are growing up too fast is that they don’t even remember each other.:( Nevertheless, I enjoy getting to check in and catch up at our sessions. As always, I had fun with Michelle and her crew of boys!

It’s been a few weeks since I did a Mom and Me Session for each of these ladies. I still wanted to be sure to show some of the great images I captured of moms and their kids. In my humble opinion, it is uber important to get out from behind the camera and do this with your kids.

It’s real easy for us moms (yes, me too) to dismiss getting in photos with our kids. We want to wait until everything is perfect. If we were to stop and really think about it, we would come to the realization the it will never be the perfect time. The time to document you and your kids is now. You don’t even have to wait for a Mom and Me session! You don’t HAVE to hire a professional. (Although I do recommend it!) Get out that camera and just. do. it. [said in a loving voice]

My heart fills with joy when I see these images and know these moms have invested in doing this for themselves and their kids. Because really, it’s our kids who inherit these priceless heirlooms. They will mean the most to them down the line.
