I often think about how these are the days. Right now, this is it. These are the days we will look back on as parents and reminisce about how it seems like just yesterday our babies were so little, and now they are off to high school or college, or running a business or about to get married. Every single person with grown kids will tell you, enjoy every minute – it goes by so fast. Not something we all enjoy hearing ALL THE TIME. I mean, when you are sleep deprived and covered in spit up half the day, the last thing we want to hear is “enjoy every minute”… In reality, it can be hard to enjoy every single minute, but I can see what they are saying.
From the outside looking in, it is much easier for me to see the beauty of this time in your current life – no matter what haze or chaos you might be functioning in with all that is going on in your life. And, this is my favorite part of what I do, documenting the moments I know you will look back on someday and say “wow, those were the days”. Even if you had come from a crappy day at work, or it was chaos getting everyone ready and out the door for our session. None of those things will actually matter in the grand scheme of things. You will only remember the beauty that we captured and the love that was there that day, and the rest will fall to the way side. Or at least that’s the hope.
Not only was this yet another very special time for another very special family, near and dear to my heart… but the weather was incredible, the location was perfect and the light, OH THE LIGHT… the light was pure magic. You’ll see. It all seemed like a dream to me and I couldn’t believe it was their first family photo shoot ever!! Such naturals these guys were. There are a million. I’m not even going to apologize… Enjoy!
