WHO are these sessions for?


All mothers! – Expecting mothers, new mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, generations.

WHAT is the focus of these sessions?

The idea behind these sessions is to keep the images ultra simple. My focus is on you and the special bond you share with your children. These are relationship based images.

WHY just sessions for moms?

Often times it is the moms job to be the chief picture taker in most families. We are not in nearly enough images with our children as a result of that. These session focus on capturing images of mom and those she loves most. The goal of these sessions is to take away all distractions and focus on the relationship between a mother and her child(ren). We will create beautiful, timeless images celebrating that love.

WHERE do the sessions take place?

This year these sessions will be taking place in a beautiful studio near downtown, with lots of natural light, beautiful hardwood floors and white brick walls..  It is a comfortable and quiet environment where you can relax and enjoy your session without any outside distractions.



April 26 – 2 morning spots left and 2 afternoon spots left.

May 3 – 1 morning spot left and 1 afternoon spots left

Tatiana | Celebrating Mothers 2011-2014

2015 will mark my 6th year offering these special sessions. One of the things I have come to love most about them, is the continuity that has been created with so many clients. I think its so wonderful to look back over the years and see the changes. The style of these session is simple and clean, so no matter how much time goes by, the images created will remain timeless.

Currently those on my wait list are choosing their date and time for their sessions. All the remaining session times will be posted here tomorrow. These sessions will take place on April 26th and May 3rd. Right now, the May 3rd dates are almost all spoken for, so if you are thinking you might want to get into one of these sessions, be sure to let me know ASAP.
