I was totally in love with these Mommy mini sessions from earlier this month. Each Momma was so beautiful. Even more so when they shined with their kids. I feel like Mothers are at their most beautiful when they are just connecting with their children. Such a site to see. It is so amazing when Mom’s want to be IN the photo with their children.

Some of these Momma’s are regulars of mine. Some were new faces. So appreciative to each one of them. Some of my most cherished photos from childhood are of my mom and I (and sister). Not even smiling at the camera even. Just being us.

Please take a peek at my day with these lovely ladies and their darling kiddos. I couldn’t choose just a few, so I included them all! Love this set up. It is a new regular of mine that many of you have probably started to see by now. I absolutely die over this new antique quilt I recently picked up.

What a bubba! He was so handsome.

My heart! So glad grandma got to come!

So much gorgeousness going on in these galleries. I would have loved to do a Daddy mini session date but my schedule just didn’t allow it this year. Got to shout out to all my Dad’s too! It is my goal to get some shots like this with ALL 3 of my kids very soon. I always seem to have just one kid in a photo with me at a time :) I just got a remote shutter, I will have to work on it. Soon! Get in those photos, Mommy’s!

Will be updating the blog soon on the last few dates I have left for newborns and outdoor sessions for the rest of the year. If you are looking for an outdoor session this year, I would contact me asap. Only a few left. Newborn session availability is booking fast as well.

If thinking about a session with me, please email me at jessicaweinstockphotography@gmail.com or use the contact button on top :) I am happy to answer any questions you may have. It is best to book your session with me about 4-6 weeks in advance (sooner if newborn session) as I can’t guarantee space. Especially in Spring/Summer and Fall*
