We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Swedish Inspired Mother's Day Child Photography Shoot

We want to wish all of you a very happy Mother's Day today! In honor of this sweet day, we wanted to share these adorable photos that Lizzie Metcalf of S'Wonderful Photography along with her sister gave to their own mother as a gift. Lizzie's mom immigrated to the United States from Sweden, and growing up their house was filled with many items from Swedish culture their mother loved. So this year for Mother's day, Lizzie and her sister dressed up her nieces Sienna and Naomi in vintage dresses from Sweden that belonged to their mother as a little girl. The girls played in a pretty field with the same wooden horse and piggy that Lizzie brought home from Sweden as a child. Lizzie shared, "This shoot is so near and dear to my heart not only because I love each image, but because I love the girls in each image, and the memories that go along with it." This is such a personal and sweet Mother's Day gift that simultaneously honors a piece of who their mother is, while also giving her photos she will cherish of her own beautiful grandchildren. To see more of these two adorable kids, stop by the full gallery.
