capturing a moment in time |
If there is one piece of advice I could give to other moms, it would be to take tons of photos.
We recently had an opportunity to do a mini-family-shoot, with our favourite local photographer, Gabi Moeller. Did it pour rain, ending in us re-scheduling? Yes. Did Sophie, who is so absolutely cheerful and happy 99% of the time get very serious, and refuse to crack much of a smile? Yes. But you know what? That’s ok–look at our fantastic pictures that resulted in it.
I’m not suggesting everyone run out and buy an expensive photo-shoot, but I do suggest you take the time now and then to get a photo or two. I am quickly learning how fast kids grow, and I already find myself forgetting what Sophie was like 6 months, 10 months, 16 months ago! If it weren’t for my iPhone photos, grainy, taken with a camera I don’t know how to use yet (I know, shame on me!) photos, I would only have my memory to rely on. Let’s face it… next month, never mind 12 years from now it wont be as strong as a photo will.
So grab your camera, grab your family, and get snapping :)
P.S. Thanks, Gabi!
