HAPPY NEW YEAR- Resolve to capture the memories!

The New Year always gets me excited about what lies ahead and also makes me reminisce about the past.  I came across this New Year Baby picture of my now rambunctious 5 year old boy!  Wow, I miss the days when he sat still for pictures.

He is sooooo going to hate this picture in the teen years, but I am sure will treasure it like I do when he is older.  That is what I love about creating images – for myself and other families.  Not only can they be beautiful artwork for your home, but more than that, they are moments frozen in time and saved forever.  Little ones change so fast.  I can hardly keep up with my guy, but looking at this image with his sweet pudgy fingers takes me back in an instant!

As you start the new year, are making sure YOU are in the photos, too?  That is my resolution for the year!  Drag dad, get the kids, mom stop procrastinating and have someone (like me – lol) take a family portrait.  I started looking through my pictures and they were all the kids and daddy or just the kids.  All of us together was a rarity!  I have a few of my family from when I was little and THOSE are my favorites.  I want to give that to my children.  I want to be present in their memories. Whether is is an elegant studio shot or a outdoor urban scene- do something that is YOU and represents your family for years to come.  Most often I hear that Dad wasn’t too excited about getting his picture taken and am always elated to hear that they had fun, and the family has a great memory of togetherness and fun!  I promise it is painless and you will have a good time!  Mom, you will look great – so stop stressing about what to wear or putting it off until you look a certain way (I know you know what I mean… I am soo guilty of that, but NO MORE!)  Call me and let’s make a memory!

New  and exciting changes are coming this year so be on the lookout.  Follow the blog and become a fan on Facebook for specials and fun giveaways.  I look forward to seeing my wonderful clients in 2011 and meet some new ones this year!

  5. Such a cute shot! He is so going to hate it when he’s a teen, but he’ll treasure it when he’s an adult and can show his children!
