It’s nothing new to say that pictures are important. They’re important to everyone. They are likely the most important physical thing to me in the entire world. That’s probably obvious. When I think about the pictures that are most important to me, they are family pictures, yes. But they are not the standard family portraits. They are pictures of my husband reading a book to our children. Or ones like these – memories of just a really great night spent together watching movies on a bed made of comforters and pillows on the floor. Or even just pictures of family dinner. These are the times that make up our life and these are the things I want to document.
I post a lot of pictures like this of my own family, especially through my One A Day project. One thing I hear over and over again when I post these pictures of my babies and their every day life is, “so, could you just come to my house and follow my kids around for a day and take pictures like that?!”
Yes! I can! I would love to take more pictures like this for my clients. More pictures of every day life. ‘A Day in the Life’ sessions.
What is most important to YOU right now? What is most special that you want to never forget?
Is it your sleepy babies first thing in the morning?
Is it the chaos that ensues after breakfast?
Is it your most important dinner time when everyone is at the table talking about their day?
Is it the way you all snuggle in for bedtime stories?
Heck, right now for us, it’s potty training our little guy. There’s so much more than just the picture of him sitting on the potty. He is turning a MAJOR corner in his life! For me, as a mom, I want to remember that.
If documenting your every day life is something you’d like to do, *please* get in touch with me. Let’s spend a day just taking the time to record these memories.
This is a time you’re never going to get back. Life is always going to be busy. You’re always going to be critical of the way you look. Things are always going to be “not quite perfect”. Take the time right now to remember. And I do travel. We are in central Illinois, but we are forever driving to one corner or another of this state, and halfway across the country for something it seems. You don’t have to be in central IL!
And that’s my PSA for the day.
