"Preserve your memories, keep them well
what you forget you can never retell"
I began this journey documenting the life of my children, as any mother would! Eight years *gasp* of ups and downs. From a "Boys ONLY" statistic to finally being a girl mom. Each day brings challenges and obstacles that I never knew could exist. On a perfect day the skies could quickly gray because GOD HELP ME, if her bow doesn't match. Or if my newly independent toddler feels that it's the appropriate time to scream like it's a death match at any given time. *Wink wink*. But god I love those days, where you fight to crawl out of bed. You force your eyes to peel open, just as much as they can. When nothing seems to fit or look right once you have it on. When you absolutely can't stand the thought of doing your make up, or making three trips to and from school.
The days when you just want to slouch into your chair, turn on your favorite Netflix and binge (uninterrupted). Those are the days when that sweet little face screams "MOM" as soon as they see you. Pride themselves enough to spill their whole day on you, before they fill you up with kisses and hugs. Those sweet little angels that make my life so incredible, and complete. Most days I just want to keep them locked inside, never to see the light of this thing called life so that I can smother them all to myself.
I totally understand the unpredictive nature of these perfectly unperfect, little people. No one wants to stand in line, in a world full of adventure. Or wear an itchy shirt. Or do anything that someone else tells us to do (no matter what age).
My job is to bring you an experience. A day you will never forget. Each session from birth, till marriage, through every important milestone. I won't pose you. I will not fit you into a perfectly built advertisement where every smile fits the frame. Where on "one, two, three all eyes are on me." I believe in capturing the passion between looks, tickling bare feet while tight in your nook. I want to see the real you. Messy buns, and lattes, Dishes and all - lifestyle, type session. Bring something fun, let's go for a walk. Have a picnic, or maybe you've decided to stay in.. No problem!
Let me come to you, wherever you are, to capture the moments that make your life worth living.
