Mommy and Me Photo Session

I had been seeing so many adorable "Mommy & Me" photos all over Pinterest lately and thinking how sweet it would be to have a few photos of just me and Kollyns.  Not a bad idea to capture this moment in time while she still thinks I'm the best thing ever.  Obviously they make the perfect gift for my mom and my grandma's on Mother's Day.  But more importantly, when she becomes a teenager and forgets how much she loves me I can show her these and remind her that back in the day she adored her mama.  Ha.
So when Donna contacted me about modeling for a "Mommy & Me" session I was very flattered, even more excited...and a little bit nervous.  I'm such a weirdo about having my pictures taken.  It's fine in casual settings and all, but I freak out a little when the focus is on me because it just makes me uncomfortable.  She was coming into town that weekend so it was pretty perfect and I just couldn't pass it up because...
|One| I've seen her work and she takes beautiful photos.
|Two| She offered to take them right behind my house at our pond which makes them even more meaningful.
|Three| I had already found some (Pin)spiration for photos like these and loved the idea.
Well, the session went great and she's an amazing photographer.  And it turns out she is super easy-going and sweet, and before I knew it the session was over.  And now I have priceless photos that I will cherish forever and ever.
Thank you, Donna.  You're wonderful. 
More to come when I get my hands on all of the digital files.  Eeek.
In the meantime, visit her website and check out her work!  Then book her for your next session because you know you want to. ;)
