As I was editing this session, I started to feel a little emotional. Looking at these images, knowing these guys will cherish these in years to come make me sort of envious. (Personal stuff coming so beware)
Unfortunately I lost my mom suddenly a few years ago, and I would give absolutely anything to have images like this of me with her. Smiling, happy, looking gorgeous. I have maybe a handful of pictures of me with my mom and they are in no way “professional” shots. And even those I cherish with all my heart. Now that I’m older and have kids of my own I would love to be able to share with them Her brightened smile while being in her element of just being a mom. How happy her eyes looked when she would play with us. Those are the images that get cherished.
If you are on the fence with getting family photos done. Get off the fence and book. You may not see the entire value in them today, or tomorrow. But I promise you will, and your children will in 10,15 even 20 years from now. As a mom I know what it feels like to feel less then “picture ready”. But believe me, your children think you are perfect. Because you are. Don’t take those negative thoughts, and hold back what your kids could and will be cherishing for the rest of their lives.
Well.. now that I’ve said my piece and shared my personal experience. Id love to introduce this gorgeous, wonderful, fun loving family. The Padget family <3
