Photography stops time. This is not just my motto, it is my belief. It is why I do what I do. Life speeds by us so fast. Our children get old, family members move on, and our friends move away. Each moment is so precious. Each memory, a gift to hold onto. I love what I do so much because I believe in it with my whole heart. And I promise you - I am buying what I am selling!!
Last year my son announced that he was moving out. At 22 years old, I guess it was due but our family was still not prepared. I knew that I HAD to have family pictures done before my son left. Now, I have to admit, this was very difficult for me to do because I was (and still am) at the heaviest I have ever been. I was trying so hard to put off new family pictures until I "lost the weight" but quickly realized I had to just suck it up (and in) and do it. With my son leaving, I HAD to have the pictures done. I am so grateful that I did. I love these family pictures with all of my heart. Especially this one of my son and I.
