For many expat mums, Sunday the 14th was Mother’s Day, round 2 (and why not?)
Mother’s Day comes once a year (twice a year if you’re an expat in England!) but at Boggio Studios, we think mums should be celebrated all year round. What sometimes can be a thankless job, deserves a bit of recognition every now and again. Don’t worry dads, you’ll get your moment in the sun too, but today, let’s hear it for our superhero mums and thank them for all they do.
Beyond the fact that most of the time mum is the ‘photographer’ for family shots and photographs of the kiddies, she might not always feel like she’s ready to stand in front of the camera for her close up. It might be due to the fact that she’s just changed a million nappies, done the school run and has been sorting out laundry all day so a day of pampering and fun in the studio could be a welcomed activity.
This could also be only half the story. We find many mums are very self conscious and often times think they prefer to be behind the camera. For these mums, we would encourage you to read this article we stumbled upon not too long ago. It addresses an issue that mothers seem to be constantly struggling with when we meet them to discuss a photo shoot.
Giving a shoot a as a gift to your partner or parent (yes, we photograph grown up children with their parents too!) is really an amazing gift and can be used at any point in the year. This means you could arrange your session for later on in the autumn and have images to share for the holidays – thinking ahead is never a bad thing.
The best part is we are 100% bespoke. If you have an idea for a shoot, we work with you to realise your ideas and help style and create the vision you have. With years of experience, Julia is often able to create more magic in the studio than our clients had ever really thought – we swear she’s a baby whisperer as well as photographer!
Get in touch with our team (or call us directly on 020 7042 9777) to organise a lovely gift box and surprise mum with a gift to say thank you for all she does. We can’t wait to help plan your shoot and create some memories you’ll cherish for years to come.
