I absolutely love meeting with families and helping them capture a moment, helping them create a treasured image that represents them as a unit. I love working so much with families, in fact, that I often do not pick up my camera much outside of my portraiture sessions. Plus, I don’t want to over-document the lives of my kids – when we are at the pool, I want to let them swim, heck – I want to swim with them, not just take their photos. But I made an effort to change that this summer. I had my camera handy and snapped away when a moment tugged at my heartstrings. And I’m so glad I did – here is one of those moments.
