You can’t bottle memories, but you can capture them….

Do you feel like time would just slow down?

I know I certainly do. My children are aged 10 and 12 and I really can’t believe where the time is going. One minute they were just babes in arms and now the youngest is at middle school, and we are preparing for my eldest to start high school!

I think sometimes we’re so busy working towards their next milestones that we forget to live in the moment and capture their progressions.

Do you ever see them do something which makes you stop in your tracks?

I know my children do that to me on occasions. It makes me pause and absorb that very moment.

I also came across it in the studio a couple of weeks ago when I was photographing a family. I had posed them and got my shot and then quietly asked the children to tickle their parents. The results were brilliant and when I was going back through them afterward this one image stood out and gave me gooses bumps….you know that moment when you laugh and you turn to your most favourite people. I’d captured it and now they’ve got that memory….forever!

When was the last time you and your family were all photographed together?

Don’t leave it too long….believe me when I say, they grow up far too quickly.

Have a great week,
