Children are the sum of what mother’s contribute to their lives – Unknown
Ok…and dads too.
We may think that our children are never listening to us but they are taking it all in. Moments that seem inconsequential at the time could end up being a fond memory that stays with a child forever and ever. Seeing two children reflect the independence, kindness and joy of childhood is beautiful and I never tire of seeing it. This family portrait session above encompassed all that and more.
I cherish the first image. I know that some people prefer a posed “perfect” family shot – but this photo is a treasure. This is a shot that will evoke lots of memories for mom – now and 20 years down the road.
When I peruse photographs of our family or just the girls, I want the photograph to take me right back to the moment it was taken. I love to remember. I love to hear Gabby’s laughter. I love to remember Isabella’s pout that has not changed in nearly 7 years. I love to remember the good and the bad, the joy as well as the tears. I love to remember who my children were and still are.
I love that by looking at the few images in this post, you are able to gain insight into who these children are. Joking. Whimsy. Playful. Sincere. Thoughtful. Introspective. Caring. Happy. …Love.
The sum of a child’s memory bank.
