Motherhood v Teenager
Two Tree Island, Leigh on Sea
I always get excited when I receive a message from another mother with a desire to have a snippet of their mummy journey documented.
The one thing that came across when chatting about the ideas for this particular shoot was capturing togetherness as they spend lots of time together and love each others company – well that made me well up already and that’s not even the full story!
As we met, I got to hear what a special day 20th April actually is and this is what Yuen said about it on her post over on IG
“Courtesy from @photography_by_petra ….. Never been one to like having photographs taken – partly because I am very self critical and secondly I am the self designated photographer in the family. By coincidence, the photo shoot was booked for the 20th April … a year on from my brain operation – it was important for me to create some memories. Sometimes we need that little nudge … the future is unpredictable. No one can pre-empt what will be tomorrow.
Petra was brilliant. She made the session fun and helped to put my self conscious daughter at ease (and me). It was a fun and laughter filled hour with some lovely photos for keepsake.
Can’t recommend her enough …. Petra … Thank you. X”
This is just what I mean when I say that we don’t need a special occasion to do/create/document something for ourselves, our children.
Hope you like the photos as much as I do!
