Mommy and Me Styled Shoot with Domus Aurea Portraits and Stylist Joy Green

Joy and I met when I photographed her and her adorable family in the spring. We immediately connected (though I have a feeling Joy connects with everyone she meets). Joy is gorgeous and stylish and to top it off just a beautiful human! When Joy reached out to me about collaborating on a mommy and me styled shoot I was beyond excited!

We wanted to create something unique for mamas. Since Joy and I are both mamas ourselves (we have little girls! Joy’s baby Kai is 1 and my baby Adia is 2) we know how important it is to get into pictures with our little ones. We not only wanted to see other mamas get into photos with their babies but we wanted them to feel as beautiful as they are. Feeling beautiful as a mama isn’t always easy. I’m not sure what it is but once you have a kid your desire to actually get dressed for the day and put on anything other than yoga pants goes down 100%. Can I get an amen?! Ha.

Maxit Flower Design created the beautiful floral pieces. Joy was the amazing stylist who did the set and also styled the mama’s wardrobes. And this session was even published in 100 Layer Cakelet which is such an honor and it’s so fun to be able to add that badge to my publications/features page! :)

I guess I’ll stop typing and start sharing the images. Get ready for lots of pretty photos. <3
