Mother and Child Portraits {Gigi’s Joy Photography: Union Grove Family Photographer}

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I’m celebrating early with a few of my favorite Mother and Child Portraits. I’ve already shared Mamas and their Babies and my personal Mother & Child art collection, but I wanted to share a few pictures of older children, too.

I adore capturing sweet moments with mamas kissing their babies – whether those kisses are welcome or not!

And being able to capture a shared hobby…

Even in my senior sessions, I warn the mothers that they’ll be on camera, too.

Mothers need to exist in photographs for their children… and too often we find dozens of excuses not to. This Mother’s Day, pass your camera to another, and gather your children around you for a quick snapshot. You’ll be glad you did.

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before.

The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.” ~Rajneesh
