We have a special tradition… One that began many years ago when we became parents… An annual family photoshoot! We got to work with the talented Robyn Davie Photography team just before lockdown and now, more than ever, we treasure the images captured.
A quote that perfectly sums up parenthood. We are blessed with a few special years when our kids live right under our noses, never too far for a kiss or a cuddle. We take reading favourite stories, baking and playing outside together for granted. Forgetting, these everyday moments, will one day be a thing of the past.
We will be the ones waiting on phone calls, hoping for shared Christmasses and holding on for a few more seconds after a hug goodbye.
Now is the time when our kids look to us for everything…
Our time, our attention, our love. Soon they will be off on their own adventures, living wonderfully full lives, writing “new stories” that we share in, but we won’t be the “main characters” anymore…
That’s when we will look back at photoshoots – just like this one. Remembering days past, savoring the gift of this incredible season and how we once could scoop up and hold all of our heart in our arms.
And that’s what a good photoshoot does…
It’s the gift of precious memories, frozen in time to be enjoyed and remembered. And like the best memories, they don’t need to be fancy and styled…
Home shoots are our favourite. Being captured in our house, just being ourselves, where the girls feel safe and most comfortable. The tiny details of who we are…
Scheduling a photoshoot at the same time, year after year has also given us the most amazing visual treasure chest filled with beautiful pictures showing how our family has grown and our girls change within only 12 months.
This year we enjoyed a simple sunny afternoon in our backyard followed by a walk down the road with our dogs – something we will never again take for granted.
40 minutes of us, being us – with a friendly “fly on the wall” snapping away.
