Free Valentine's Day Minis at Movies for Mommies!

Lots of you have come to see me at Movies for Mommies over the last year and I have been having so much fun photographing your beautiful babies. It’s so amazing to watch them grow up in front of my lens and I love seeing everyone all year (and a half!) long on their maternity leaves! I’ve been so lucky to meet so many great people through these shoots and I love seeing them over the years as we do birthday sessions, family sessions and mini sessions! This last weekend at my Mid-Winter Minis I photographed two families I’d met at MFM Humber 5 years ago!

In my regular work I prefer to photograph people in their environment, but the dimly lit hallways of movie theaters don’t always make for the cutest baby portraits. I had so much fun coming up with this set up. I knew I wanted to use a colored back drop, because the last few have been more neutral, and pink felt like an obvious choice. I had my neon-look love sign from last years minis and I wanted to use it again, and a trip to Target (!!!) came up with this adorable little heart banner. I also loved that it was neutral colours because the pink background felt like plenty of colour to me.

We always send out a promo shot for Movies for Mommies shoots and everyone has gotten so amazing at dressing their babes to fit the theme and match the set! I love seeing everyone’s outfits as they arrive and it’s so fun to chat with everybody while we try to elicit eye contact and giggles from the littlest film buffs. Thanks for letting me a part of this beautiful season in your life!
