A special Mother's Day Single Mama shoot | Pleasanton Family Photographer

When I was approached by my friend Cristin More asking if I would be interested in donating a session as part of a big Mother's Day giveaway for single moms my answer was yes, absolutely yes. People were asked to nominate single mothers who were deserving of a free photo session and the response was overwhelming. It turns out there are a lot of strong, amazing women filling that role. No surprise. I was primarily raised by a single mother (Hi Mom!!) and while we faced challenges, the love was NEVER lacking.

This is the amazing Alexis and her two beautiful, sweet kiddos. I had the best time watching their interaction and it was an honor to gift this session to them. I know that when these two young people are grown they will appreciate having photos with the women who taught them strength, courage, and love.
