This is the fourth time I’ve had the privilege of photographing this family, but the very first time that dad wasn’t included! When Tamar arrived to the session, she told me he actually wanted to join in — but this one was her turn! For this Mother’s Day session, we wanted to capture the beauty of everyday life, connection with her girls, and all of the little moments that make up motherhood.
Tamar originally told me that she wanted to show up in everyday clothes — nothing super styled. But I had to laugh because she showed up with the most perfectly coordinated clothing anyway! She can’t help it…everything she touches just turns to style gold!
Of all the images from this session, my absolute favorite is one where you can’t even see their faces. It’s the one of Tamar holding one of her girls close, bathed in sunshine. It brought me to tears the first time i saw it on my editing screen. In the end, I’ll choose the emotional images over the technically perfect ones every single time. It’s my hope that someday, these images will bring her daughters to tears too. ❤️
