Mummy and Me Session: Alice & Isla
The photos Claire captured of me and my daughter were amazing- I sat and cried at the video of the photos! She’s captured me in a way I didn’t realise anyone could see- not even myself. Love love love! – Alice
The moment I received the questionnaire from Alice, I knew this session was going to be special. That there would be an amazing chemistry between Isla and her Mummy. And I wasn’t wrong. What a fabulous Mummy Alice is!
Not only that, Alice is a great photographer herself. I love indulging myself in her Instagram feed. I knew that Alice had a great collection of Isla photographs already, so the number one priority for our session together was to capture the beautiful connection between the two of them, as well as to capture this wonderful chapter of their lives.
As mums we know that every phase is all too fleeting. Their littler characters, their habits, their likes, their dislikes, they change sometimes daily. The way they interact with others, their environments are also forever evolving. But for me, Alice and Isla’s session was like gold dust. It was magic. The chemistry, the connection, the bond between the two of them was just gorgeous. And I just loved that Alice felt I captured that for them – I should say, in just one hour.
It means so much to me that I can give families the chance to capture these fleeting moments, these connections. It’s something that does not come across in a selfie or a portrait shoot in a studio (in my opinion for what it’s worth). Families need to be where their hearts are most rooted, to feel connected, comfortable, at one with each other. That’s when the magic happens. Memories are made. Moments are captured.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful EveryDay with me Alice & Isla. You were both beautiful and so open. Here are a few of my favourites from our time together.
