This beautiful mama wanted to capture portraits with her daughter in one of their favourite places. The rocker in her room. Instant heart melter. I can so relate. I nursed, sang to, read to, tickeled and rocked both my baby girls in the same rocker, that had it’s place in each nursery and it took me a long long long (haha, ask my husband) to be able to let it go.
I was so happy to be able to do this for her.
Then of course, we had to go to Mommy and Daddy’s room for some snuggly reading. We finished off the session at a local park where this little lady ran around chasing the birds.
I adored everything about these 3. Don’t you?
In their own words…

What do you wish for your daughter?
What we wish most for our little girl as she grows is that she’s always surrounded by people who love and uplift her, that she discovers what she enjoys doing and is able to meet the goals she sets for herself, and that she always recognizes in herself the wonderful qualities that we see in her. We have so many hopes and dreams for her but more than anything we just want her life to be filled with joy.
One thing you can’t live without (as a family)
We can’t live without our stroller. On warm days (and even some cold ones) we love to go for walks.
Advice for parents preparing for a portrait session with small children
Bring some treats! A pocketful of some little teddy grahams or other small treats can go a long way, even if it means just getting your toddler to sit down for a minute or two before running off again
