Porch Mini-Sessions: The M Family

July was an amazing month for Mothership Photography, and it will take me the rest of the summer just to get around to blogging about the terrific fun we had at a handful of portrait sessions!

Seems like a hundred years ago now, but it was only a couple of weeks ago when the M family came out to Manotick for a mini-session on the porch. It was a lovely summer afternoon, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day for portraits. I also couldn’t have asked for a sweeter, more photogenic family!

I was warned that the six year old son had a habit of making that squinty non-smile that boys of that age seem to make, and so I took it as a personal challenge to bring a genuine smile to his face. Little did he know, I’ve had lots and lots and LOTS of practice battling that boy non-smile thing. Bwhahaha, I won!

It was a lovely afternoon spent with a lovely family — not a bad way to pass the time on a summer day! Thank you, M Family!

Now that the summer is coming to a close, I’ll have far fewer spots available for custom photo sessions. If you’d like to book your family’s portrait session, you should get in touch soon!
