Mama's Boy

Shannon is an incredible make up artist and repeat client of mine who ALWAYS brings the giggles and the gorgeous.She visited me during my last trip to Fort Worth with her "Little Monkey" to celebrate the continued breastfeeding relationship she has with him.

I loved shooting in Michelle Monk's adorable little studio (PER-FECT for mini sessions!) with her and her son. He is such a firecracker and she is so sweet with him. She brought a skirt her grandmother made for her that was totally perfect in this all white space.

From Shannon:

"I'm a mommy on a mission to nurse my son "as long as I'll make it and he'll take it"...2.5 years later, we're going strong!  I have chosen Mae twice to capture moments in our nursing experience and treasure every image."

I'm so looking forward to meeting more nursing mamas during my last trip to Fort Worth on November 23. Contact me via the form above or at for more info.


The Last Time

Mother & Daughter Mini SessionI met Mama A in 2012 during a breastfeeding mini session with her Baby G. These two ladies were SWEET AS PIE and G reminded me of my own little babe, Norah. Imagine my giddiness when I received an email from Mama A booking me for another mini session this year. I love any opportunity I get to photograph mothers, but when they are repeat clients, and when they are as genuine as this woman is, you get excited about it!

I received this email a few days after I delivered their images "My husband and I are dying over the pictures!!! Thank you so much.  I love them.  And I love how you captured G's smile that reflects her joy.  And {she} hasn't asked to nurse since then so you may have truly captured the last time I'll ever breastfeed!   Bittersweet."

You see, G is the youngest of many siblings, and the last baby Mama A plans to nurse. Little unexpected gifts such as this fill my heart.

Thank you for allowing me to photograph you during this time as a nursing mama, A. You are a joy.
