Because she will only be this age once. She’ll only fit in your arms in that way for so long. She’ll only excitedly proclaim, “Choo-chi!” in that way that her words are not yet pronounced for so long. But you’ll always have the photos–and always, always, she’ll be your baby.
I’ve ranted many times of the importance I feel in professionally photographing family regularly. Authentic, lifestyle photographs that bring out the emotion, age, and relationships that intertwine the family unit. They’re heirlooms, my friends–time capsules that, ten years from now, you might not remember otherwise.
This is part of my family. You’ve seen them before, because well, we do this regularly. We do it because we believe in it. We believe in the documentation, the frozen moments in time, the art of it all.
Amanda is my first cousin, but is really more like a sister, honestly. We’re five months apart in age and have experienced so many monumental life events together. She had my godchild, Isla, a year and a half ago, and has brought so much added joy into our family.
These are my two sisters–Shelli and Delaini. You’ve probably seen them on here before, also. Shelli is in school at LSU working towards her Master’s Degree and Delaini is heading to junior high.
I scooped up my Isla-girl for a few photos of her and I. We just couldn’t let good hair and a happy baby go to waste as long as there was still sunlight out…
But my favorites, always my favorite, are the time captured between momma and baby.
