It’s been a little nuts around our house! wrapping up the end of summer…soccer try outs, kids headed to camp, 50th anniversary parties, and of course many beautiful sessions! I am in awe that summer is almost ended! I know we still have many days of beautiful weather ahead of us, and I’m still booking beach sessions through October…but I have to face the fact, the days of a more relaxed schedule and late night swims are ending soon.
In many ways I welcome the new school year…just like New Years…it’s a fresh start, a new beginning…time to get organized and begin new routines. This year we have two in middle school…my mind hurts when I think that my baby is headed off to the 6th grade. As I was looking through many old family photos for this Anniversary shindig that we are throwing, I realized, yet again how quickly time passes…how those moments are gone!!
Though I’m a photographer, I do a horrible job of taking photos of my kids, my family, and important dates. I so need to be better at this!
I’m challenging myself to take one photo a day of each of my kids for the first month of school. It doesn’t have to be pretty…it doesn’t have to be posed, but I want to capture them in their day to day. We’ve gotten so use to our camera phones that are so easy, simple and convenient, but we really need to get back to our cameras! I would never use a camera phone to take a picture of a client, why would I do that for my own family.
So get out your cameras, and start snapping away for your family!
I had the amazing opportunity to photograph this GORGEOUS family while there were at the beach for vacation! I feel that all my clients are beautiful…(I’m so blessed) but this family…wow…they are just stunning! And beautiful people make beautiful pictures! I adore the close ups of their kiddos…the light was perfect, with this beautiful sunset and it just was the perfect background! Thank you so much Massey family for allowing me to capture you!
