A mother daughter photography session with the lovely A.K. and her beautiful mom, taken with black and white film in NYC.
When the lovely A.K. reached out to us to inquire about mother daughter photography for her and her mom during their autumn trip to New York City, we knew it would be the perfect time to break out our film camera. We had a bounty of black and white film we had been waiting to use, and A.K. said that she absolutely loved the idea of mother daughter photography shot in black and white.
Shooting with film is always our preferred method of photography, so naturally we were thrilled about the chance to capture these two beautiful women on it. Something about film just looks so ethereal, almost like each image is its own painting, and there’s nothing more special than a mother daughter photography session to capture the love between a mom and her child. We met A.K. and her mom at their hotel near the United Nations, ONE UN, and took some candid photos of them sitting on a couch next to the windows overlooking the East side of Manhattan.
A.K. brought her dad’s film camera on the trip, a memento that she used in some of the photos, and it adds a unique detail and extra meaning to the images. The ladies also switched into traditional Indian outfits for the second part of the session. The ornate patterns and stitching is so beautiful, and on film it’s even easier for your eyes to appreciate the fine details even more.
We can’t get enough of sessions that celebrate love in any form, and we hold a special place in our hearts for moms and their daughters. We hope you love it, too, and that these images inspire you with new mother daughter photography ideas! <3
