Just over a week ago, I had the privilege of photographing 10 sets of mothers & daughters at a special event. My friends at Belovely Floral and Event Design along with Maggpie Vintage Furniture Rentals teamed up to create ‘Beepie’. In the past it has been an individual event for women to make flower crowns and have the opportunity to get their hair and makeup done by the SUPER talented True Beauty Marks team. They then have a mini portrait session with one of two photographers. So when my friend Lauren from Belovely approached me to photograph the first ever Mommy + Me Beepie, I was SO honored and excited to be a part of it.
Since becoming a mom nearly 2 years ago (Whhhhat?! Pause time please), photographing mothers and their children (especially daughters) has been near and dear to my heart. I love capturing the bond and love that mothers share with their children. I also know that every mom probably has a million selfies with their kids because we are usually the ones behind the camera or phone! AMEN?! But it is not every day that moms get the chance to wear a flower crown that they made, get their hair and makeup done, and have some professional photos taken with their daughter(s).
Beepie was held at the Horticulture Center in Philadelphia, which is GORGEOUS. Having a space with ample natural light and beautiful furniture pieces from Maggpie, made it very easy to get some great photos of all of the beautiful women + girls.
Thank you so much to each mom and daughter who allowed me the privilege of photographing your sweet relationships. I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day this weekend!!
Some behind the scenes:
This gorgeous girl is my sweet friend; Olivia Fisher of Laura Olivia Photography. She was the other photographer shooting this event and I LOVED doing this along side of her! She was test model before we started. 🙂
