Have to say I was having a bit of a sad day because my son started 7th grade yesterday morning, which left me at the kitchen table taking a trip down memory lane and sitting there with tear filled eyes. It seems like it was just yesterday I was sending him off for his first day at mother’s day out! Where did the years go?
So as I sat there thinking about all the years that have gone by it occurred to me that’s the reason I’m in this business… to capture those special memories and moments that we as parents cherish that seem to be gone in a blink of an eye. I got up from the kitchen table and went to the computer where I have all of our pictures stored (of course, they are on back up drives, prints, etc.) to have an actual picture to look at of my sweet boy’s smile when he was a baby. Even though I can remember him well at that age, there is nothing like looking at an actual picture, because time has a way of causing our memories to fade a bit, and at least for me, the exact image of his toothy smile becomes a bit blurred.
It was very touching for my heart to be able to look at the sparkly eyes of my little guy as a toddler and helped ease the sadness I felt because he’s grown up so fast and is half way through junior high!
Enjoy a couple of sneak peeks from yesterday’s session. I’m so glad this couple came in and they will have these images of their sweet baby Jack to cherish for a lifetime, and hopefully, one day his mom, Kate, will be able to turn to them to help her remember the exact details of baby Jack during these special moments because he’ll be grown before you know it!
