The longer I do photographer the more the types of photography shoots change. It use to just really be engagements, families, and weddings and now you have things like "trash the dress" or mini family sessions. And now one of my new favorites is this Mommy and Me session. Call me biased because I am a mom, but these are an absolute joy to do. Given that you are just focused on these two family members the session becomes so much more intimate and fun. It is more about the two interacting with each other, rather than structure or posing them for a shoot.
