Every family has a story. Let me help share yours.

My family is just like yours.  We have people we have loved and people we have lost.  We have happy memories and we have had hard times.  Some days are a breeze and some days we just stumble and try to pull ourselves back up.  I love my children but sometimes they drive me crazy.

Everyone always says the days are long but the years are short.  I couldn’t agree more.  I still love looking through our old family albums and sometimes I can’t believe that was really me with such thick curly red hair.

There is a photo of me at 3 years old sleeping in the wooden rocking chair.  Now my 3 year old sits in the same chair.  I take a photo.  There is a picture of my little sister covered in stuffed animals.  Now my sister and I cover our own kids with stuffed animals.  And we take their pictures.  These photos are so important to me and while I try not to get stuck in the past, it’s so nice to look back and remember where we came from.

I love looking at the picture of my parents when they were young — my mom’s hair was long and red, my dad’s was black and curly.  I want my kids to remember me like I am now — young and strong and hopeful.  And tired and stressed and real too.  I don’t know what I’ll be like when I’m older.  I hope I’m wiser.  But I’ll never be like I am now.  A picture can’t capture it all but it is worth a thousand words.

I’d love to work with you and your family to capture and bottle just a little bit of the magic that’s happening right now so that you can look back one day at it and appreciate it for what it is – a moment in time that’s just yours.  Your legacy.  Your roots.  Your wings.
