SACRAMENTO FILM MOTHERHOOD SESSION | JOANNA & MARGOT

When I asked Joanna why she wanted to capture the little moments of motherhood with her babe, Margot, she said “I can’t wait to look back and see that she has the same grin or smirk, twenty years later.” And I love that. While Margot didn’t want to give us a smile on a cold and windy day, she had no problem cuddling up with her mother and finding comfort in her embrace during their Sacramento Film Motherhood Session.

Joanna and Margot joined me in an effort to memorialize the little in-between moments that make up motherhood. From cuddling in blankets, to trying everything to get little baby laughs, this is what motherhood is about. And this is why we stop, and take in the tiny little moments. The love. The connection. And the joy (even if it’s one-sided).

Joanna and Margot, Thank you for sharing your love and joy with me. From your maternity portraits, to newborn photos, to these fun film motherhood portraits, it has been a pleasure getting to know you both and your story. Thank you for braving the cold weather, a case of the baby grumpies, and more. I can’t wait to watch Margot grow and become her own woman! Sacramento Film Motherhood Session - Joanna and Margot - Ashley Baumgartner - Sacramento Motherhood Photographer - Mommy and Me_0001.jpg
