When Elizabeth contacted me earlier this year about scheduling a Beauty Portrait Shoot for herself, I was so excited. Then when she told me she wanted to bring her teenage daughter along with her for the photo shoot, well that sealed the deal. I was so excited to do my first Mother & Daughter Beauty Portrait shoot. The session date couldn’t come fast enough.
In the weeks that preceded the session, I had the opportunity to get to know a little more about Elizabeth and Emily but on the day of the shoot they both really opened up. I learned that Emily, a high school student would soon be going off to University and that Elizabeth, as all mothers will, is already emotional about her only daughter growing up and into a beautiful young woman and having to let her go soon. And Elizabeth is finally starting to have some time to herself with both of her kids getting a little older and becoming more independent. Having this little bit of extra time to herself has allowed her to focus on her health and wellbeing. One of her reasons for wanting this shoot is to celebrate how well she has done with getting into great shape. She is celebrating the loss of 25 lbs and she is still going strong and looking amazing.
The day of the shoot was full of laughter and funny stories. They brought no shortage of wardrobe ideas, actually I am pretty sure they brought majority of their closets to the shoot. They did a great job constructing their wardrobes and they both looked beautiful during the shoot and did a great job.
