Mommy & Me: Arminta & Miles

Hey guys!

I am super excited to share my very first blog post with you! First up is this uber fun mommy and me session with my friend and fellow photograpHER, Arminta. When tutus, chucks and a very active kiddo come together, you're bound to have a good time. 

 

This shoot was a long time coming for two busy entrepreneurs but it was totally worth the wait. We created magic, even though there were challenges present. When Arminta told me that she had a soft  cast on her arm, I thought " Lord, how is this going to work?" lol. Come through denim jacket, layers of tulle and some strategic posing!!! Yasss...problem solved! 

 

What I loved most about this shoot was seeing the interaction between Arminta and her son. I tried to create moments that would reflect the authentic mother/son connection while other moments just happened organically. 

 
 "Miles, help mommy fix her skirt." lol. This totally went left field but it works, right?!

 Arminta: Miles, don't do that. Me: Miles, keep splashing. 

Arminta: Miles, don't do that. Me: Miles, keep splashing. 

Sometimes, you have to let a kid be a kid. Those are the authentic moments that I live for. They give me life!

We wrapped up the shoot with an activity that is always guaranteed to elicit a favorable reaction from everyone involved - jumping! Seriously, who doesn't love a good jumpshot? From the looks on their faces, Arminta and Miles definitely did and I certainly got a kick out of it.

 

Arminta and Miles, thank you for allowing me to capture you. I thoroughly enjoyed every single moment. 

 
 

Until next time, lovelies!

XOXO, Melena
