Family adventure through the hundred acre wood


When I look back at my family photos, the best photos are always the ones that have my parents in them while we are on an adventure or some during holidays (those are pretty much the only times my mom would be in the pictures).

There are actually very few of these photos and I wish there were more. The really special ones are the ones of our dad and us. Maybe because he’s no longer with us or maybe because family got a bit complicated and things got tough as we got older, as it sometimes does for some families.

I love to look back and see that despite the fact that life got crazy as we grew older, and our adventures as a family became few and far between, in the beginning they still happened and they were really happy times for us as a family. They are moments I’m glad I still have in my memory and photos help me to keep them fresh.


Now whenever I do a family photo shoot I always keep in mind that these photos are not really only for the parents, or for gifts for the grandparents, or for a beautiful display on the living room wall.

The photos I’m taking of these families now will someday be held by their children when they are adults themselves and maybe even have little ones of their own.

So when I can capture moments like the dad holding his daughter tight, big brother forcing a maybe not so gentle (but full of love) hug on the strong willed little sister, mom’s eyes full of love as she looks at her husband, or when dad, with a big smile on his face, looks over at the little ones as they stuff their faces with popcorn, that’s when I know I’ve captured a lasting memory. Yes, it’s moments like these that every family has but sometimes are forgotten, that I want to keep frozen in time.


Because....THIS. IS. FAMILY.
