Mother's Day Lifestyle Shoot with The Soteria Initiative / by Anna Bader

What a wonderful day spent shooting these beautiful Phoenix Mom’s and their girls! I love capturing unscripted interactions between parents and children. Even if your toddler is having an off-day, if we can stave off a total meltdown, I promise you-we will still get something beautiful! I prefer capturing children exploring, playing and just BEING, instead of getting a cheesy-overdone-preset smile. Some kids are programmed when they see that camera ; ) I know, I know, just wait until I have my own kids, right? “Mom, not agaaain!”

Before any toddlers arrived on-site,  I shot with Janie,  Talk about a glowing mom-to-be. This gal is gorgeous and full of life! Such a pleasure to work with!

She has her mama's blue eyes!

Thank you all – so much loveliness and grace.
