Time is precious.
And Moments are just that, moments.
Moments in time are fleeting and there are so many I wish would last a lifetime. I feel as though I blinked and the news I was 'expecting' turned into a happy, kind, vivacious 2 year old little boy.
In the chaos of family and work I often miss capturing those special moments within my own family. Then the other evening I got a beautiful opportunity to capture the tiny intricate details that make up my son. Those precious features that I grew for 9 months and make him unique. It still blows my mind when I just sit and stare at his gorgeous self sleeping peacefully.
It is in those moments of peace and quiet that I notice how incredible this little guy is, how flawless he is. I love that I have the capabilities and provision to creatively document every inch of him and every big event in his life.
Photography is such a blessing to me, it allows me to hold on to every precious moment and intricate detail forever. Living away from family and friends gives an extra emphasis on the importance of documenting the milestones they are missing. Not simply photographing the event so they can see what we done but capturing the essence of the mood, excitement and true experience to where they feel by just looking at the photos that they were there!
Photography for me and my family is not a luxury, its a necessity, a tool for which we all feel closer together despite being thousands of miles apart.
