Photography takes an instant
out of time
by holding it still.
- Dorothea Lange
I grew up with photographs. From baby headshots to birthday parties, kindy graduation to uni graduation - I had multiple images of every one of life's milestones. These also appeared in family albums or framed on the walls at home.
Perhaps the reason why we had so many photos was because my family's business is in photography. But I reckon, one of the main reasons was that we wanted to remember those oh so fleeting precious moments.
I'm very glad to have opportunities to celebrate life's milestones with a number of families. A frequent portrait request I get is to celebrate babies turning the grand inquisitive age of one! One of which is from first time mother, client-turned-friend, Mummy MinD.
She shared that she wanted photos to remember her baby girl's smile as well as the little things she loves doing at this age - like dancing to the catchy tune of chicken dance.
