When I photograph a child I always ask the mom if she would like to be included in a few pictures.  Some choose not to and that’s okay.  However, I think they are missing out on photographs that will someday become some of their (and their children’s) favorites.

I love that Nicole always wants to be in a few pictures with her kids.  What I wouldn’t give to have some pictures like these with my mother at this age!
