Moms, how often do you take beautiful photos of your children? Now, think about how many opportunities you get to be in the photo with them. That’s one of the many reasons that I love to do mommy and me minis. They are more than just a chance to get photos with your kids, however. Shoots like my Rib Mountain Greenhouse mommy & me session leave you with many memories!
The Greenhouse session, in particular, was such a fun day for me as a Wausau family photographer. It was my first time doing a mini-session at the Greenhouse in Rib Mountain, but it won’t be my last! Everything worked out perfectly—from the lighting and location to the smiling kids and proud mamas. Read on to learn more about how this mommy & me mini-session went.
As a family photographer in Wausau, I take great pride in scouting out the best locations for each mini-session. Luckily, it wasn’t hard to pick the Rib Mountain Greenhouse for this mommy and me shoot. In fact, this gorgeous Wausau, WI venue is now one of my all-time favorite spots.
For this specific session, we choose to stay in one area of the greenhouse. It ended up being the perfect spot because of the evening light that came through the glass. The location I selected also gave the families plenty of space to move around and have fun without being interrupted by any other customers or staff.
I was so lucky to work with 12 lovely moms and their sweet children. It’s always fun to see and appreciate all of the unique dynamics across the different families. From a mother soaking up every second of love from her little guy to a mother and daughter duo in matching outfits, we had such a wonderful mix.
You don’t have to have young children to enjoy a mommy and me session in Wausau, WI, though. This session was the perfect example of that! For this mommy and me mini, I even had the pleasure of photographing an adult daughter with her mother. It was especially sweet to capture photos of the two of them in the Rib Mountain Greenhouse because they share a love for gardening.
Throughout my time as a Wausau family photographer, I’ve learned how to handle any of the challenges that come with photographing young children. Whether your kiddos are shy or someone gets a little messy, I know how to capture the special moments in between.
On this shoot, I was able to sneak around and get fun, natural shots of even the shiest faces. I even had to run damage control after one of the girls fell in the mud. When working with kids, you have to be prepared to face anything! It’s all worth it, though, when you see the photos of a mother who looks at her children like they are her whole world. Even the challenges make for wonderful memories that you can look back on and laugh about!
Mini-sessions are a quick and painless way to get photos of your kids! Many of my customers return throughout the year to get updated photographs. If you’d like to do the same, you can sign up for my next mini-session. You can also contact me to ask about joining the Birthday Club or scheduling a session with me as your Wausau family photographer.
