Six months. Six happy, hectic months. Six months of getting to hold you, watching you grow, seeing your personality taking shape. It seems like it's flown by so fast, like just yesterday I was getting to see your Daddy hold you for the first time. Now you can sit up and clap your hands and smile at us with your two little teeth. The weird thing is, as fast as the time has flown by, I can barely remember what it was like before. Life before you were in it feels like a distant memory. And all those silly things I thought were so important before, they just don't matter anymore. And the things we love have been brought so much more into focus now. Our family, our friends, our work, you make them all that much more precious.
We have made a commitment to spend as much time with you as possible. That means that we have to put in long hours during other times of the day and divide up the work days so that we can each get to do both - work and spend time with you. But it's so worth it. And we never forget for a minute how lucky we are to get to do that - to make our own schedule so that we can watch you grow up. And, most of all, that we have couples who trust us with their memories and see our vision for how to capture their love for one another. So as difficult as it is to leave you for the day when we have to go photograph a wedding, we just remember that what we're doing will be invaluable for another young family someday - to be able to show their sweet little children the photos from the day they got married.
After our own wedding, we understood the value of the images from the day that much more because we realized just how fleeting each moment of that single day is, especially after we lived it ourselves. Now that we have a you, we have come to a deeper realization of the importance of not only those images, but all the moments in life - because really, you truly come to realize that every moment is fleeting, especially when your little one is growing up so fast.
Happy 6 months, little man! We hope to make your life as wonderful as you have made ours.
Here's a very small sampling of some of our favorite shots from the last six months - a mix of professional shots and snapshots from our iPhones.
** And to all of our couples out there - thank you for believing in us and trusting us with your most precious moments. We never take that for granted and truly appreciate that you make it possible for us to do what we love and have our own business. **
