I have been very blessed to have become a photographer while my daughters were children. I’ve been able to build their stories over the years through my photography.
I had photographer friend tell me once I should have a business where I offer some sort of lifetime photography to people. I could start taking pictures of their babies and continue on until they become adults. I’ve actually been able to do this with some of my (client) families, and it’s been amazing to watch them grow and change.
I actually have two different pictures I keep taking of my husband, Steve and youngest daughter, Emma. One is the two of them together, with her over his shoulder, and the other is the two of them walking on the beach. I hope someday to have them in these images, when she ges married, or when we add a grandchild to Steve’s lap.
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show you the images I’ve taken so far.
I love seeing all the changes in the two of them. I also appreciate the parts that don’t change.
Looking at these makes me stop and think about how much time has passed and how grown up Emma is. It’s wonderful and sad. But isn’t that what photography is supposed to do to us?
