Sarah & Aliyna – Durham Region Mother’s Day Photography
Aliyna and her Mom Sarah were in recently to test out the new set for Mother’s Day. You may have seen this sweet girl on the blog at her newborn session a couple of years ago. She was the cutest little newborn, and now she has grown into this super smart, hilarious and completely adorable toddler.
Warning: I am totally oversharing on this post. There were so many images that I feel in love with from this session, with so much emotion and love that I just kept adding more and more in. I adore the Mother’s Day Sessions! They allow me to capture Moms relaxing and enjoying their babies, having playful moments and pouring their love into their little lives. I know that these little ones are going to grow up looking at these images, having their Mother’s love affirmed, building their sense of security and self confidence. It doesn’t get much better than that!
If you haven’t signed up for your session yet, check them out on the Mother’s Day page before they are all gone! April 27 – 29 with only 10 spots left and they are going quick, get in touch to snap yours up!
Sarah is total Mom goals. I need to throw that out there right off the bat. Two year olds can be a complete blast, as they are completely adorable, full of energy and love to play – BUT they can also be a challenge for the same reason. Aliyna was amazing, and credit needs to be given there, however her Mama was incredible. She kept her sweet daughter engaged, gave in all the right places, held firm where needed and stayed calm, patient and peaceful the entire time. I’m telling you, Mom goals. ?
Aliyna and I see each other at Church quite a bit, she plays with my daughter at Sunday school, but she has always been pretty shy with me. After this session though I think we are going to be best pals! She warmed right up and was full of wonderful stories and comments, all too happy to pose for this picture as a “surprise” for her Mommy for Mother’s Day ?
In almost every one of these images there are hidden trinkets. Toys behind pillows, shoes beside the bed, a book under the covers ? Aliyna was having so much fun exploring her environment and playing with all of the treasures that she found. At one point even SHE hid behind the pillows!
Nose kisses… the sweetest nose kisses come from a toddler who holds your entire heart. There is nothing like feeling their tiny, soft nose rubbing up against your face while they breath their sweet toddler breath in your face.
I don’t know if I can pick a favourite from this gorgeous session but if I had to it might be this one of them playing. The joy and love that she has for this precious girl is written all over Sarah’s face. I am completely confident that every time Aliyna sees this she will feel loved and remember how much fun she had playing with Mommy as a child. They are both so blessed to have each other and I am betting there are countless more laughs and smiles to be shared over the years.
Sarah and Aliyna – Thank you so much for allowing me to capture these images for you, I hope they bring you both as much joy as the ones of myself with my own sweet babies bring us.
Durham Region Mother’s Day Sessions will be held on April 27, 28 and 29th. Treat yourself (or the wonderful Mother in your life) to a session with your children and let me capture the magical bond that only us Mother’s know.
