What I was really missing were all the in between moments. The times my daughter would crawl into my lap and lean her head against my chest holding her favorite book. Or the times my son would grab my face with both hands when he gave me a kiss. Those moments have now passed and instead of grabbing my face, he licks me if I get too close. Cute right? 

Truthfully, I barely have any photos with my kids because I always felt like I was too much of a hot mess to be in the photos. Something I’ve learned along the way is, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if your hair is a mess or you looked like you haven’t slept in weeks. These photographs are really for your children even more than they are for you. They are heirlooms that they will appreciate for generations to come. 

I still remember our first family camera. It was bright pink and called the “Le Clic C170”. Google it. I wish I was kidding. But, this camera captured some of my best childhood memories. Every family vacation, celebration and school performance my dad stood with this bright pink camera, documenting our life. 

It was the most exciting day when we would go to Superstore or London Drugs and develop the images and pass them around reliving our experiences. 

Like my dad, I have always been the parent who wants to capture all the little moments of my children’s childhood. When my daughter was little, I used to try to take the “perfect” photo of her. LOOK AT MOMMY AND SMILE!!!! Sound familiar? When I had my son, I noticed it’s not about the perfect photo. It’s about documenting life as it is.

so glad you're here!
