It has been a really difficult month or two for my family. We've lost three people very dear to us in the last few weeks and I have been strolling down memory lane with old family photos. As I look through those photos I always wish that I had more. I guess that's why I try to take so many pictures now of our everyday life. I want to remember it all- not just when we got dressed up and posed for the camera. I want my son to have pictures of the faces of people that sadly he may never get to know.
This post may seem preachy and some may think I am just trying to sell something when I say take LOTS of pictures. They don't have to be professional ones, I understand the economy we are living in, but take pictures- AND print them- so that you can look at them later. And to all you parents out there- get in the picture with your children! Don't worry about your house being messy, or that you want to lose a few pounds because none of the things will matter to your child someday. All that will matter is that they have the picture and the moment frozen in time.

Hi, I'm Melissa. I am a wife, mother, step-mother, Gigi (step-grandma) and a photographer. I started out as the family member always asked to bring my camera along and it has turned into my life dream. I just love being able to capture moments for others that they can always cherish.This is my little corner to share my sessions, projects, and a little piece of our daily life. Thanks for stopping by!
