I have been so incredibly lucky with the gorgeous clients that have chosen me during my photography journey. I know thats something that most photographers say. In fact we probably say it a bit too often, but I mean every word. I am so extremely lucky.
When I started out on this journey, I set out to tell the stories of family, love and connection in the most honest way possible. I wanted to capture moments that MEAN something. That intention has been returned to me over and over in the clients that come to me to have their story told. To capture the moments that MEAN something, to them. This is hand on heart what I live to do.
This session was a special one. A session to capture a family home as well as a family. A home where a beautiful couple got engaged, married and bought their babies home to. Where memories are plentiful and a place that would soon no longer be theirs as they move onto a new adventure. My heart burst with the beauty of what we were capturing not to mention the beauty of the family that I was making images for.
Life runs away from us in a blur of preparing dinners, calming tantrums, navigating the every day struggles and joys. We need to remember though, to take time to look around and remember why we are doing all of this. Its the memories of who we are right at this moment that are important. While a home is at face value, a bunch of bricks and land, the memories that it holds is more important than all of that. Dont forget to breath that in every now and then.
