The days are long, but the years are short. As parents, we all reach that time when we look at our children and ask, “Where did it go?” Sure we have many years left, but if you are like me, the ones that have passed have done so so quickly that you worry how fast the rest will go. We have to make sure we take the time to slow down and be grateful for the now, no matter how hard it is. This family does that. I am friends with mom and facebook and love seeing her posting images of the times they get together as a family doing fun things together. These children are loved very much and I’m sure they know it. I’m so happy I had the opportunity to meet and photograph this family! They are such a beautiful and photogenic family in addition to being fun to be around. I know we don’t all get the change to have family photos done frequently. We have various reasons for putting it off. I hope this family cherishes these images for many years to come.
