Palm City Mother & Son Sunset Session

Your babies sure grow fast, don’t they? How many times have you tried to get them to sit for a photo with you and they just weren’t feeling it? I’ve heard many mamas voice their frustration about not getting many good photos of them with their babies and want to offer my help documenting this special time for you!

This beautiful mother and son duo was a joy and a delight to capture. I originally met this sweet Mama while I was working as RN and 3 years later we still keep in touch.

I photographed this Mommy & Me Photo Session at Allapattah Flats in Palm City right at sunset. I used golden backlighting to create sun-soaked, candid, fall-feel family portraits.

I simply adore their unique connection here. This session features unposed moments and authentic interactions. This sweet boy was full of energy and a healthy dose of mischief. It’s always fun to take little boys outside and let them run barefoot, wild & free, right where they belong!

What I love about photo sessions like this is I know that this mother will look back on this moment, ten or fifteen years down the road, when her little baby is starting a new chapter in his life. Before you can even blink your eyes, your children will be all grown up with family and children of their own! I love that I helped capture such a sweet moment that I know this mom will remember and cherish forever. I recommend these types of photo sessions to any family!

There is another Mommy & Me Session on the beach.
