Motherhood Self-Portrait | Brentwood Family Photographer

Updated: Sep 13, 2019


This is my little love. She’s my reason for starting my business. She’s basically my reason for everything. Believe it or not, I I never took Newborn photos with her. This was before I started my photography business. I was in a “new mom” haze and the time passed too quickly. It’s still one of my biggest regrets, I’ll never get that time back. But since then, I’ve made it a priority to take these self-portraits once a year - no excuses! It’s my gift to her. Someday, I’ll be gone, but she’ll always have these photos to look back on fondly. (Even if she doesn’t remember all of them). As mothers, even if you’re not technically a photographer, it’s the role we all inevitably end up playing. We often aren’t in many (or any) pictures with our children. I am saying all of this to let you know even photographer moms go through it! Having professional photos with our children to capture these small moments in time is something to treasure, and something we should make a priority. Not for us, but for them. ❤️


I just wanted you all to know, I practice what I preach! This one absolutely screams big, beautiful, canvas don't you think? ! While I am primarily a lifestyle photographer, I love creating beautiful portraits like this. If this is something you're interested in, drop me a line.
