remember always | columbus, ohio baby photographer
I remember sitting in the rocking chair in my son's nursery. It was a brown chair that sat in front of the window. As I sat in the chair, the window was behind me and to the left. I was about to start nursing my son on the right side. The light from the window was making his little face just glow. I pulled him close and he did that wild, side to side, mouth open, head shake right before he latched on peacefully. I remember looking down and thinking I don't ever want to forget this moment. I loved that crazy head shake.
I know I said...I don't ever want to forget this moment...about 1 bajillion times in the last six years. I remember a friend said her mother once told her that you say that to yourself constantly as a parent...remember this moment...and you won't remember it. Its true. I've forgot about 99.9% of those.
I'm not going to say you should have a camera out documenting every part of your life. I'm squarely in the we need to be present as parents camp. Put the camera down and live with your family. I am going to tell you to relax a smidge when you hire a photographer. I know you want the perfect family pic....and believe me I'm working my butt of to get it for you...but, every now and then when the photographer says lets take a breather or just let him go...the moment is there...
