If you’ve been following me for a while, you are probably aware of my latest fixation with time and how it seems to be passing by so fast. I can’t help but wonder if this is my version of a mid-life crisis since I’ll be turning 40 soon! Yeah, not sure how I feel about that one but ready or not, it’s coming.
With this fixation, I find myself focusing on preserving time and I do that through images.
When you make time to have portraits taken (and then printed) you can see the changes that you might miss going about daily life.
A few weeks ago, good friends of mine were visiting for a few days. Actually, some of you might be sick of seeing them but I’m okay with that. They been the subject of a few recent blog posts. If these images do anything, I want them to stand as reminders to my audience to have your kids photographed because I believe in the importance of documenting lives, especially the lives of our family.
This post is called Then and Now because I wanted to share the comparison of the older boys and how much they’ve grown since their previous portrait session with me.
Then was Christmas 2014, and my, how the boys have changed…
They were little boys and their baby brother.
They are young men and their kid brother.
I know it’s hard. I know families are busy and getting pictures can be a chore but it’s worthwhile. Make time for it. Find a photographer who can make it fun (maybe me?) and #documentyourfamily.
Now is the best time to start scheduling. Fall dates are still open for scheduling sessions for just the kids or have the whole family join in.
