Grab yours before they are gone!
There is something especially amazing about watching your brother and one of your best friends bring a perfect new life into the world together. What a beautiful family, my heart could burst with happiness.
I don’t often write long posts (after all this is a photography website and a picture is worth a thousand words) but I wanted to share some of my thoughts with you at the start of this holiday season.
I’ve said it before, but one of my favorite parts about being a family portraits photographer is watching my families grow and being able to document each stage in their lives. Do you remember this couple? I first took their portraits to celebrate their second wedding anniversary, then again to celebrate their first pregnancy. Now here they are, a family of four.
Family pictures are magical. They are true time machines that take us back to moments we might otherwise have lost forever. Three weeks ago I lost someone I dearly loved. I have been missing her every day and have been further reminded why what I do (photography, specifically family portraits) is so important. Everything created by my lost loved ones hands, every picture I have of her is a true treasure and brings her warmth back into my life. I feel regret that the last time we were together I didn’t take many pictures because I was unwell. That my youngest daughter who shares her name will have no memories of her. But I take comfort in knowing that I do have pictures, and I can tell her story.
I know that planning family pictures can be difficult, but it is worth every effort. I take great pride in the compliments my clients give regarding how this was the “easiest” or “most relaxed” portrait experience they’d ever had, or that I shattered their expectations for the stressful experience they were anticipating. Life is fleeting. But photography allows us to hold onto it and savor our time and memories here a little longer. It tells our stories to the generations that will follow us having never heard our voice or held our hand. It gives us a form of immortality. Hold close your loved ones this hoilday season. Laugh hardily, love deeply, and don’t forget to take pictures.
Our annual family portrait. I love our outfit selection this year.
My wonderful parents.
After 35 years of marriage, 3 kids, 4 grandkids later, they’ve still got the heat. Everyone needs a picture like this with their spouse, not just from your engagement or wedding day, but a reminder that amidst all the goings and comings and mundane things life has to offer, that spark that brought you together is still there. Love you Mom & Dad.
