Mama & Me mini sessions by Danielle Gillan

We all know how important our moms are and the joy it brings us to browse photos of her through the years. As a mother to three young kiddos, I know how hard it is to get in the frame and in fact I have moved forward ‘self portraits with kids’ on my bullet journal to do list for a good year now. Although amplified by being the photographer in the family, I know that I am not alone in my worry that outside of the smiling selfies, I have a very small presence in our family photo collection, just google search any variation of “Mom, get in the photo” for confirmation. So mamas, let’s make a conscious effort to exist in our kids’ childhood photo collections.

In honour of getting Mama in front of the camera, I am offering Mama & Me mini sessions. A short and sweet 15 minute session in a classic and timeless studio setting (see my previous “My Mama’s Dress” mini sessions for a glimpse of the studio setup) with 10 high resolution images included. Multiple generations encouraged!

To book your session, please submit THIS FORM and I will be in touch with your confirmed time. 

Mini session times:
12:30 (Booked)
12:45 (Booked)
