During late spring / early summer, there are some things that are a given: the flowers, trees and grass are vibrant and gorgeous again, the temperatures are beginning to rise, the bugs have come out in full force, and there is almost always a glowy, buttery golden hour. Being a photographer, I love to taken advantage of all of those things - except the bugs. Definitely NOT the bugs!

When scheduling my photshoots, I make it a point to let my clients know that I LOVE golden hour. Love isn’t even a strong enough word… I am obsessed with it. Infatuated even. It makes my heart sing. So whenever we schedule to shoot during that magical time when the sun makes everything sparkle and glow, I do a happy dance!

Amanda and I decided to shoot her Mother’s Day Mommy & Me session at one of my FAVORITE locals spots. And wouldn’t you know it- we scheduled it during golden hour!

Amanda and her adorable little boy were so dang sweet, and absolutely ROCKED IT OUT at their session! Once her little guy realized the photoshoot was a chance to wrestle, hug, and giggle with his momma, he let loose and let me capture some amazing and joyful photos between the two of them! My heart seriously melts with some of the tender moments I was able to capture of these two.

I am completely obsessed with how their session turned out! I have attached my favorites below! Be prepared to see some professional models down below!
