After their flights were cancelled not once but twice - Natasha and her boys finally arrived in NY from Florida a couple of days before their session this past week!! I think they brought the hot/humid Florida weather with them but you would never have guessed how hot it was that evening when you look at their beautiful pictures (this photographer on the other hand was a "hot" mess LOL)!! I always love it when clients choose a location that has special meaning to them - in this case it was the beautiful property of Natasha's Aunt and Uncle. The colorful flowers and lush greenery were the perfect backdrop for this beautiful Mom and her handsome young boys. Mom looked so pretty in her white maxi dress and flower crown and you could just feel the love between the 3 of them as they snuggled and held hands throughout the session. We had to battle the deer flies right from the start so I decided to make a game of it. I told the boys to swat and wave the flies away as much as they wanted but to be ready on the count of 3 for me take pictures - it worked!! After some pictures in different parts of the yard they took a stroll down a lush, wooded trail that made for some story book pictures. We ended the session by the gazebo built by Natasha's uncle - a great way to end such a special evening.
In the past when I thought about Mommy and Me sessions I immediately thought of mothers and daughters. This all changed for me after this session. All you Mom's with boys - how precious are these Mother and Son pictures? Hoping this beautiful session will inspire other mothers to want to book sessions with the special young men in their lives!!
