Mother/Daughters Portrait Session

Lunch was provided by Sunshine and Punkin Catering located a couple of blocks from the studio. The turkey and cheese sandwiches with Beverly’s special pesto mayo were delicious and filling. And the cookie was just perfect! Kathy Padgett is a very talented hair and makeup artist who recently moved her salon from Helena to be closer to her parents in Hueytown. She applied just enough makeup to the girls and curled their hair to highlight their beautiful features. Mom (Jenny) got the full treatment – she does not normally wear makeup, and her daughters were excited when they saw her “dressed up” look.

We spent a couple of hours taking photos in several different outfits, but the portrait that absolutely won the hearts of both Jenny and me is this one:

Jilly, Jenny, and Chrissie

I surprised Jenny with a 16×24 matted print so she could see what a beautiful piece of wall art we had created together. Here’s a slideshow of the images Jenny took home with her in her handmade legacy box (made in Ireland!). Recently I’ve added the legacy box to my studio’s offerings, and the box is a big hit.

Enjoy the slideshow! And when you decide to have beautiful portraits of your family, I would love to talk with you.
