This session was in my clients home just before the second lockdown, thank goodness we managed to squeeze this one in because the results are amazing. I had a few discussions with mum prior to the shoot and collated a mother-daughter themed Pinterest board (which you can see here). When we looked at the inspiration we both just loved the idea of a soft white on white session and Maria had some perfect outfit ideas for herself and her daughter, as you can see they work really well together. Instead of using a white backdrop, I decided to back light Maria and Lina to create a more ethereal look to their session, you can see this brings in some beautiful light to their hair and the sides of their faces, I just had to ensure that they were getting enough light to the front of them so they weren’t in shadow. I’m probably getting a bit too technical here but we had a great session, Lina was as lovely as ever, she’s such a happy little girl and just loved all the mummy cuddles.
As with all mummy and me sessions, I encouraged Maria to have a few photographs of herself on her own, you can see these towards the end of the post, I’m sure her daughter will cherish these solo photos of her mum in years to come.
