It was such a pleasure to photograph this family! This might be my longest blog post ever – there were so many pictures that I loved! They are beautiful, fun, and have so much love for each other. The hugs, kisses, and laughter came so naturally. But, this family is also special because mom is a photographer. As a photographer myself, I know how hard it is to get good pictures with my family (that I am in!). As photographers, we see so many moms who are reluctant to be in pictures with their kids. (And, I have to admit that I am like this too). But, this is so backwards! Often, the only memories a child has of their early childhood are triggered by tangible memories, like photos. Our kids aren’t going to look back later in life and comment on the way we looked. They are going to remember the laughter, love and time we spent with them.
So, I was thrilled when this opportunity came up, and we were able to exchanged services and photograph each others families. This time in life goes so quickly. I’m so glad I was able to capture it for this family! Oh, and if you want to see a sneak peek of the pictures she took of my family – here’s the link.
