Hamilton Photographer: Why book a motherhood session

Motherhood is a time of so many emotions. Your children are so little but you also know how quickly they grow. It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget how much they have grown. Take a look at a photo taken last year – it will blow you away. That’s why yearly photographs are so important – these document this time for you. It’s so important to choose a Hamilton photographer who’s style and look resonate with the feelings you want to remember.

The most important thing is to think about how you want your photographs to feel. Sometimes you might want photos to capture to fun, carefree nature of your family. Sometimes you might want candid, true-to-life images. Sometimes you might want images that show the deeper connections and emotions that are part of your life as a family. Every one of these is equally valid and important. It is absolutely OK to choose different photographers for different reasons. Life is never a straight path and neither is motherhood. Think about what is calling to you at this point in your life, and find the Hamilton photographer who’s style matches what you’re looking for in this moment.

Sessions with me tend to focus on deeper connections and moments. You will feel beautiful in one of my client dresses available to you. Imagine images that are more like paintings – I want to romanticize your experience as a mother. There is always time for the day-to-day. I want you to step out of that for just a moment and feel the big feelings. The beauty and the pain that is motherhood.

These sessions captured below were styled by the amazing Sugarbump Gown rentals (discount available if you would to rent any dresses). Reach out if these images speak to you and we will start planning your perfect motherhood session.

This is your story. Let me help you tell it. I’m Kristin, and I’m so happy you’re here. I’m a Durham region photographer specializing in motherhood, maternity, and newborn photography. Let’s chase sunsets together and create some amazing memories. You’re a dreamer and a romantic. You want someone to fully see you and your family and to capture the beauty in the big moments and the small details. Your favourite photographs are the ones that capture a feeling, not the perfectly posed photos. You crave something a little bit different from the everyday – something bolder, more artistic, and even a little cinematic. I see you. Motherhood isn’t always perfect moments. Motherhood is messy. Motherhood is hard. Motherhood is freaking unbelievable. It’s perfectly imperfect. Let’s capture the beautiful chaos of motherhood.
