Isn't that really the heart of photos, though? They're not for now, we know what we are right now. They're for later, for the years when we can't recall anymore. Photos are for our kids and our grandkids, to pass along a tangible memory that otherwise would leave with us in our mind.
That's what I think about when I shoot. The C family is smack dab in the middle of the chaotic younger years. Diapers, a toddler, sleepless nights, cartoons, and toys. They're on the verge of moving, and leaving behind the house they renovated and brought both of their boys home from the hospital to. They don't need to remember this now, they're living it. They need to document it for later, to remember when the boys are big.
I feel like I end all of these posts with saying "life is so precious." But it is, it so is.
