I often find myself… going through my own old albums and longing for my children to be little again, usually the next thing I know hrs. have gone by and I have had yet another unproductive day…
Often times I get the pleasure of… photographing someone else’s family through the years; and as I sift through the current images from our latest session I find myself having those same nostalgic feelings.
Once in a while… I am motivated enough to dig through the old hard drives and look back at my clients moments then and now and if I’m really feeling motivated I post them in a section I will now call… “the passage of time” (because I’m trying to be artsy like that).
– a side note: (I sure hope this child never loses her gorgeous eyelashes).
What I love most in these pictures is that the big sister was in love from the moment she set eyes on her baby sis and that love and nurturing is still present and evident in the current images. Now this time I did bear witness to some other emotions between the 2 girls (you know the typical sibling desire’s like the desire to cause bodily pain, the desire to have all of the attention for oneself, & the desire to put that little one right back where she came from etc… ) all normal by the way. What was much more evident was something I suspected would be there from the start. These two will always have a best friend in each other. Take a look at the girls then and now… and if your so inspired take some time to look back through the years at your own children (but try not to lose a whole day in the process).
