A Sweet and Simple Mommy Baby Photo Shoot

Impromptu photo shoot! {Photo by: Kacie McMackin}

One thing that doesn’t happen often when you’re a mom is getting your photo taken with your little one(s).  Usually moms are the ones behind the camera – rarely in front of it. Yes, most of us are still struggling with postpartum bodies, hair and skin and aren’t particularly excited about jumping in front of the camera, but mommy-baby photos still need to happen, because our babies are going to want to see photos of us together when they get older.

Well, I was lucky enough to have my photographer friend Kacie do a little impromptu photo shoot of Fern and I recently when we were hanging out.  It was great because it wasn’t forced – just photos of us hanging out at home and some she snapped when we went out to coffee later.  I love the photos because they are simple and pretty and cozy and an accurate depiction of what life with Fern really is like.  Our days aren’t filled with fancy dresses and cute prop styled vignettes – this is our life and I love it!
