Looking back at the year when I turned 13… and yes it was quite a long time ago… I remember that was the year of so much change. It was the time in my life.. when I was too old to play with dolls but too young to really understand this think we call life.  But most of all.. it was a time when worries were almost invisible and there was a sense of wonder in everything I did.

this sweet girl.. who I have photographed since she was itty bitty..turned 13 last month and she is at a point in her life when so many things are changing all around her and she is discovering who she is.  She is surrounded by true friends and a family that loves her… and because of that… no matter how different things are in the next few years there is one thing that will always remain the same… her sweet, lovable, kind-hearted spirit.

Every year I offer sessions just for mamas and their kiddos… and I do this because I know how important it is for moms to get in the picture too.  Many times we are the ones behind the camera, snapping the every day pictures of our family, and therefore there are a minimal amount of photographs of us with our kids (selfies don’t count!).  And so, on this one weekend, mamas get to get dressed up… looking as beautiful as always… and I get to capture images of them with their children (no matter how old) as they snuggle, and play, and share moments together.  So if it has been a while since you have gotten in front of the camera with your kiddos, then book your session here… you won’t regret it.

It takes a lot to prepare for a photo session… especially if your family includes 3 little girls.  And y’all the day that the “C” family’s session was scheduled was a beautiful day.  The rain had stopped the day before, a blue sky was overhead, and the weather was amazing.  They drove out to meet me and 5 minutes before arriving at the session location, rain began to fall even with a sunny sky above us. It was the weirdest thing, and so although the sun was still out the rain was just making things very messy.  We had no choice but to reschedule… that just meant that they would have to prepare for the session one more time a week later.

As disappointing as that was, I am so glad we waited.  When we met again the next week, it was just perfect.  And this family right here… looking incredibly put together for the 2nd time… had a wonderful time capturing moments like this.  They laughed, they danced, they hugged… and it was all caught on camera.

After a session, the next step is to upload every single image and then go one by one and choose the very best images.  And y’all when I was going through every single image from this be merry session, I couldn’t help be just  bit emotional (not surprising since I am the most sensitive person you will ever meet). It reminded me of the years when my little guy was this little… and how much I miss those years.

But it also made me think about our life right now.  At this very moment in time, my little family is just me and my son.  And although at times I wish that it could be different for us, looking at these images reminded me that I get the time to make an incredible connection with my son and I have the chance to create an incredible life for both of us. I don’t know if our little family of 2 will always look this way, but for now I feel blessed to experience life like this.

This beautiful mommy right here.. how incredibly lucky to have this little boy in her life.  These images are a reminder of how blessed she is. They are a reminder to all of us to enjoy what we have right now… that’s all that matters.
