Dear Mum here’s why we want you in the photo too.
To the dearest Mums reading these words…
When it comes to having your photo taken, we know how easy it can be, to become hyper-judgemental about ourselves and the skin we’re in.
That critical inner voice can often override any desire to get photographs of ourselves taken. We know how this feels, because we’ve felt it too. Preferring to be behind the camera, rather than in front of it. But we don’t want you to miss out Mum, and that’s why we’re writing this.
Knowing how you felt when it came to being photographed, it became our mission at Verve to put a new belief in place instead. To ensure that every single soul that enters through our studio doors, drop those inhibitions and has the same opportunity to be captured with your children so that you too, can enjoy and cherish those moments together.
You are deserving of that moment. We want your portrait session to be a time where you feel free, and gorgeous, and FIERCE. Because you deserve that, we want that for you. We want to facilitate a new mindset that allows you to know just how powerful having your photo taken can be, for your children, for the sake of your family memories, and to have those moments captured in time to look back on and cherish.
Dear Mum here’s why we want you in the photo, too.
Let us tell you why it’s so important to us…
Even if you don’t feel like it now, you will want these images in years to come.
Dear Mum here’s why we want you in the photo too. The vision of hindsight is often 20/20, and we feel this rings so true in this scenario. Although on this day, you may not want to look at photographs of yourself, the value of memories in photos will increase over time. Think of how much you treasure that photo of yourself and your parents at a young age, what it means to you to have that incredible memory to have in your hands and to hold. In years to come, your children will feel the same way about their photos with you.
You are more special to them than you know.
From photographing thousands of families over the years, our Verve Portraits team know as parents, just how hard we can be on ourselves. Although that critical inner voice may be running rampant, we are here to remind you that your children see you as absolutely incredible. They don’t see your flaws, or the things you see. They see their Mum. The one that is there for them, protecting them, the one that loves them and makes their favourite spaghetti. To them, you are everything.
Because they grow up so fast.
Capturing those fleeting moments of childhood wonder, means you will have those moments and memories to treasure forever in your own home, even once they are big and grown.
Images of you will be important during hard times.
Their memories should include you.
The memories consist of myself and my siblings, but Mum is seldom included. I would love for my childhood photos to speak more of how our life really was back then- which is with Mum all the time, enjoying her company and loving her every single day.
Although at the same, we focused on our flaws just as we do now. What if we looked at ourselves today-right now, the way we do looking back at old photos? What if we took the leap and let someone take our photo today, knowing our flaws are magnified only by ourselves?
