I just love these two ladies!! Mom and I have been friends since grade school so it's always such a special time when I get to capture a dear friend with their little ones. Miss Olivia is going to be two this summer and she is just beautiful. I could photograph those big blue eyes all day long.
This year's Mommy and Me Mini Sessions were held at Brookdale Park in Montclair, New Jersey on an absolutely gorgeous morning. We had some rain the night before but as I was driving to the park, the sky cleared and the sun was shining. I knew we were in for a great day!
The session was very casual and fun...just the way I like them. We let Olivia wonder and explore as all little kids should. I was able to capture those tender mommy/daughter moments though which I know will mean the world to both mom and daughter in years to come. I know Mom's favorite picture is the one of Olivia running away from her with a huge smile on her face...you can tell they were both having fun, playing and joking around. My favorite one is the sweet hug being exchanged on a tree branch...so natural and sweet.
I can't wait to photograph Miss Olivia for her second birthday! I love seeing her grow and I am so blessed to have such a wonderful friendship with mom! Happy Mother's Day Sylvia! xo
