Existing in Photographs for your Children | Chicago Mother’s Day Gift Certificates

I’m long overdue sharing this very special session that I did for my sweet friend, but with Mother’s Day approaching, I thought it was appropriate to finally finish this. I wanted to tell a story about the relationship between a mother and daughter and mother and son. Jessica shared a special bond with her grandmother and her love of perfume. She has carried on her grandmother’s legacy in her own perfume line, Ellie Perfume. We captured this beautiful moment, when she was sharing the unique fragrances with her daughter, with her son looking on curiously. While just a snapshot in time, these are memories that her children will forever have of their elegant and loving mother, just as Jessica has of her mother and grandmother.

In this age of digital photography and moms being the ones behind the cameras for the most part, we really need to be conscious about making sure we are in photos with our children and are printing them. DVDs will soon be obsolete and our legacy will only be on Facebook and on our phones. Make sure you print some highlights from the year and store them in a photo safe box if you cannot frame or put them in album.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the special moms reading this! Be sure to hand off the camera to someone else when you’re celebrating on Mother’s Day.
