Molly Watson Photography
This was the first of several Mommy & Me sessions I held this year at my studio in Medina, OH. Brittany and Ellie’s session was special because momma occupied my studio space before I leased it! Our session together was bittersweet and super fun being shot in her old space. She is expecting baby number two so of course we incorporated maternity shots as well. My setup included neutral bedding, different textures with a hint of boho, and simple greenery to keep the focus on her connection with her daughter, Ellie. When coaching them through the session I told them to keep close together and to keep looking at each other. Every once in a while I would have Ellie look my way to get some eye contact shots as well. One thing I tell every client is to keep their hands moving/busy/on each other. It shows the emotion and connection so much more. I just love the way that momma’s run their hands through their little one’s hair, how they nuzzle noses and tickle to get genuine expressions. These prompts really give them the opportunity to show their true selves and relationship as mother and daughter. I like to process my images clean with hints of film inspired settings and warmth.
Hi! I’m Molly, a wife, mom to three girls and photographer location in Medina, OH just outside of Cleveland and Akron. I shoot family, newborn and maternity sessions with a focus on lifestyle infused with some elements of portraiture. I love shooting either in-home, outdoors, or in my natural light studio. I shoot with a Nikon D700 and Sigma Art 35mm lens.
