“When we have each other, we have everything.”

And this family has it all…

wonderful parents, adorable children, love that is everlasting and a bond that can never be broken.

This is the second time I photograph this beautiful family… the last time the little ones turned ONE… and look at them now.  That’s proof that time goes by REALLY fast!

Families are everything… and every moment together needs to not be taken for granted.  Time doesn’t stand still and so… hug on each other, love each other, and cherish every moment with those you LOVE.    Choose your family every day… and you will have it all!!!

They say that a mother’s love is like no other. And it is a love that no one quite understands until the moment they hold their precious little ones in their arms for the very first time.  It is something I felt 12 years ago when my little guy was born.  It is powerful and breathtaking and everlasting.  So I can only imagine what it must feel like when the children we have become parents too! Holding our grandchildren in our arms is like nothing else… this is something I obviously have not experienced but I see the look on my mother’s eyes when she sees my little one (who is not so little anymore).  I see how she looks at him and cares for him.  I know how much she worries and fears for him.  I imagine that a grandmother’s love has to be even more grand than the love of a mother.

Not too long ago, I was contacted by a wonderful mommy who wanted to pay tribute to her own mother… her daughters’ grandmother.  Her children had been cared for by their grandmother from the minute they entered this world and their mommy wanted to capture moments between them.  She wanted to freeze these moments so that they could always look back and remember how much their grandmother loved them.  What an amazing gift for these little girls… when they are older they will have these photographs that show how much they were loved by their Nana.  And an amazing gift for this amazing woman… a special tribute for all that she has done for these lovely little girls.

I met these three handsome boys and their beautiful mama in May.  Everything about this session was incredible… not only was the wardrobe that mom chose just perfect but the personalities of each of the “S” boys made the session memorable.

However, when I think back to this session… there is one moment that continues to resinate in my mind. That moment… when this wonderful mother sat on a blanket surrounded by her children… and her husband muttered the words “that’s just beautiful” to himself as he looked at that image that I was about to capture with my camera. I don’t think it was meant for anyone to hear… but I heard and when I did the only thing I could wish for is that every mother out there could have someone say that about them.

I don’t know if he even knows the impact of his words… but for a mother who gives her all to her family… hearing words like that from the person she loves can only make her heart full. And so I have kept those words to myself long enough… it’s about time she knows the words he used to describe the moments captured here.
