One of the things i like the most about my work as a family photographer is the possibility to not have any control and sometimes just let things happen. So, on this beautiful mother’s day, i would like to share with you an amazing Family Photo Shooting in Hamburg with mama Lisa and her little Johann. The place chosen couldn’t be more perfect: a yellow field with beautiful a spring light. But Johann was a bit tired and not really in the mood for photos in the beginning of our photo shooting.
After a few first shots with the little one, we came to the conclusion that we should just walk around, give some time and make things a bit more relaxed for Johann. Then here comes the magic that only moms can do: Lisa brought to the Family Photo Shooting an old wooden car. She sat Johann in the car and started to pull him while we talked. Then i decided to back off for a few minutes and just observe the scene with my camera prepared to shoot, letting mom and kid have their interaction naturally.
Suddenly, we noticed that Johann was kind of liking that car thing. Mother and son started to show their great ability to have fun together when no one is nearby to disturb them. Then we stopped for a while and he decided to get out of the car and play around. After that, things started to get super funny and our little happy man was ready for a few photos with his mama!
A Family Photo Shooting with Love and Authenticity
While i was reviewing the photos when i got home, one thing came to my mind: this is REAL MOM’S LIFE. I just couldn’t ignore the story that happened in front of my camera before the smiling shots happened in the end. Things don’t always go the way we want when it comes to photographing kids, but mothers always go beyond to make everything be fine in the end. Hopefully in the future we will see the hardest and most important work of all being recognized as it should be. Nevertheless, moms will always be these amazing human beings who translate the essence of pure love through their actions. Mother’s day is everyday.
“A mother’s love is everything. It is what brings a child into this world. It is what molds their entire being. When a mother sees her child in danger, she is literally capable of anything. Mothers have lifted cars off of their children, and destroyed entire dynasties. A mother’s love is the strongest energy known to man.” — Jamie McGuire
