How important memories are

Family session at the First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach, VA

If you are anything like me, you keep putting off those family pictures you have been meaning to get done. I know life gets hectic and crazy. I also know how fast it goes by. If you have young ones at home cherish every second because they grow up so fast.

One day I was holding my precious bundle of joy in my arms and wondering how I was going to be able to raise this tiny, beautiful human being I made. The next day (yes it literally feels like the next day) my teenagers come strolling through the door just reminding me at every turn they no longer need my help with all their newfound independence. They will literally be gone off to college in the blink of an eye. When I look back I wonder where did the time go and wish I had taken more pictures of us along the way. Don't get me wrong, the photographer in me has been taking pictures of them the whole way. i mean boxes and boxes of photographs. The thing that is missing in them all, is me! Being a single mom, me and my children are very close, but nobody was around during those heartfelt moments to photograph our connections with each other. I got so caught up providing for them, parenting them, training them in the way they should go, and just being plain lazy. Somewhere along the way I forgot just how important memories are and to capture them.
