Let me ask you a question, when was the last time you had professional portraits taken with your Mother? With your sisters? With your daughters?
No, I don’t mean iPhone snaps from a family dinner that someone posted on Facebook, I mean real portraits. Do you exist in photos with your children? What pictures do you have of and with your parents? Your grandparents?
About ten years ago, my mom and grandmother and I even went to a big box store just to have an image taken of the 3 of us. (I swear this was before my career…don’t tell) This picture is soooo bad…and I love it. It is terrible. Sepia tone, white fuzzy border, gracious its awful. I love this picture because it is OF us, the three of us. Convincing took some coaxing for sure “Oh honey, let’s do it next time you’re here, I’ll work out more.” “Gosh! My hair is a mess”…and the list goes on. I don’t care. I am so glad that we had the opportunity to do it because now I have a framed print of, arguably two of the most influential women in my life. Two women I am proud to call family.
What would your answer be when I ask what are you getting Mom for Mother’s Day?
My personal recommendation is a makeover and photo shoot with Studio 828 Photography. Better yet, a girl’s day with you, your sisters, Mom and Aunt Sheila! I can promise your imagery will be quite the opposite of my experience with that big box store. 🙂 Don’t forget to take Mom our for dinner following your Asheville photo session with us. You will look fierce!
