your family photograph is so important

Listen, as parents, we need to exist in photos.  But that can be hard to do, right?  We take the selfie with the kids at the park, or in front of the school, maybe a cell phone pic of the kids being cute together. But, to actually get everyone ready, and allow someone else to take that image of you with the kids is hard! You know what though? Your kids love you just as you are, right now. 

Over the years, I’ve made it a point every year to do a family photo session.  It is so hard to be on the other side of the camera. But in the end, I always love the images.

I love looking back through the years and watching the kids grow.  I love seeing their personalities in each image, and watching as it changes year to year.  I treasure those photos. And I knew that I’d never stop having them taken year to year.

So, are you ready? 

cherish these memories

The strong willed toddler is force to be reckoned with this year at family sessions. I swear every family has brought one of these cute little kids with them. Fortunately for us, sweet Julio didn’t cry, but the mean mug was in full force. Thankfully, the sun was...
