They grow up so fast, these precious little ones. I know: my four are now in their twenties! Without photographs, I wouldn’t be able to remember the tender curve of my daughter’s cheek, the way my son’s eyelashes cast spider shadows on his, the soft blonde curls at the back of his neck… Looking at my photographs triggers my sense memory – I can feel the velvety skin of that chubby little arm, smell the baby-smell of my newborn’s head, hear the echo of those priceless giggles.
My aim on a family shoot is to capture all those little things plus the interaction between you all, so that in the years to come, you and your children will look at the images and remember the story of your family. I believe it is important for children to see photographs of themselves on the walls and in albums – it is a concrete signal that they are valued.
