I am married to my absolute best friend, we have one gorgeous 7 year old daughter and a 3.5 year old boy. So I know first hand how incredibly fast these moments pass us by. As a mother I oftentimes find myself torn between wanting these babies to move on to the next phase- and wanting to freeze time and keep them right where they are all at the same time. Have you been there, too?! In the moment, when the baby is teething and keeping you up all night long, you can find yourself daydreaming about when they become a toddler and are out of this stage. Then you blink. They are full blown toddlers running around your kitchen getting all the pots and pans out, making a mess no doubt, and you find yourself dreaming about when they were "little" and you could just throw them on your hip and go about your evening routine. You find yourself remembering how it was "back then" and wondering what in the world was so hard. You miss their tiny knuckle dimples, those gummy smiles, and how much they needed their mama. Each and every season of raising children seems to have this exact same feeling of how good it was "back then" in common- whether they are toddlers or teenagers!
That's were I come in. My entire purpose is to keep you in the moment, and not let you miss it. While you are worrying about your little one's hair lying just so, or how flattering your dress is or isn't- I am searching for the bigger picture. I am capturing those moments that help you remember your "back then." I hope that through my images I can show you how wonderful and amazing it is in your life right NOW. These are some of the best days! I am capturing laughter and giggles. Piggyback rides from dad, group hugs, and how you all love one another. I am capturing your JOY.
This same principle applies to couples and seniors as well. My whole goal is to help you see all these incredible moments in your life, and show you all of the JOY and wonderfulness that this season of life is bringing you. You don't want to forget it or miss it!!!
