This year for mothers day, my Best Friend and I (who is also a photographer) decided to do a little give back to our community, and to our clients who continue to support us. We did our first annual PWYC MOTHERS DAY MINIS.
We charged a $25.00 Booking Fee (super affordable, right?), and opened up 25 ( yes TWENTY FIVE ) 10 minute spots to moms in our community. We provided plain, unmarked envelopes for our families to put however much cash they could afford into to keep it as anonymous as possible.
The mini sessions were hosted at Beacon Hill Park in beautiful Victoria BC amongst the Wild Hyacinth Flowers. The grass was green, the sun was shining and the air was warm. It was a gorgeous evening and we totally lucked out!
We ran our minis from 500-720PM and everything went so smoothly (to our surprise) lol.
We spent the evening greeting new and old clients, laughing, playing with the CUTEST kids, and helping these deserving mamas capture some much needed memories with their littles. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening.
After we wrapped up with our last client, both Jaimie and I sat in the grass and shared some laughs and talked about how amazing the experience was for both of us. Being mamas ourselves, we know that being in front of the camera is a big rarity. We're always behind it capturing all the special moments with the important people in our kids lives. So getting these beautiful mamas in front of our cameras was so special!
Times are hard for a lot of us right now, and Photography is a luxury some families just simply can't make space for in their budgets, so being able to offer this to our community made our hearts so full!
We can't wait to host them again in 2024!!!!!!!
