It's hard to remember back to when I had two kids under 3 years and I'm not even sure that I fully appreciated (at the time) how adorable they were because it was so busy and all consuming. So now, I love to look back on photos and videos, especially the ones that remind me of their funny sayings, their favourite things, their habits and rituals. Photographing this beautiful family reminded me of how precious these memories and keepsakes are. Capturing the little boys love of Thomas the Train and of stickers. The way he sat with his feet tucked under him. His disinterest with his new baby sisters :-).
If I was to go back and raise my kids over again, I would take more short video clips, write down more of their quotes and I would have someone take photos of them WITH ME. I have oodles of photos of them but almost none with me.
I loved every minute with this family and I hope years from now, they look back on the photos and are reminded of their own special moments.
