I just love shooting Violet! This time of the year is just so amazing crisp fresh air, lovely golden afternoons, leaves are starting to change yet the grass is still a lush green and oh NO Mosquitos!
This is one of my favorite ages to photograph that still babyface yet turning into a "big girl" stage... It just happens way to fast and while I know its cliche to say I just feel it's an age that is so often not photographed. We have maternity followed by newborns, one-year-old sessions and then often I don't see clients until their children are much older ..
This is such a precious age and honestly isn't ever age! If I could turn back the hands of time I'd get my daughters a professional photo shoots at least once a year and have an entire series of printed albums to give them on their 18th birthday!
We live in such a digital world and not much is printed anymore its almost a lost art. I just feel social media is here today and a fading trend tomorrow. Everything is digital, fast and instant posted for likes and while that feels great for a few days what happened after? Your photos vanished in a newsfeed, maybe a few years saved on your computer, somewhere in a digital cloud? What happens when the trend fades, when the computer crashes?
The prints that my grandma has that I flip through for hours on end are forever and there irreplaceable. I have always cherished printed albums there's nothing quite like holding a photograph in your hand. I don't want myself or my children to be lost in a cloud, one day I will be gone I want my albums to be passed down from one generation to the next so my children and grandchildren know where they came from and most importantly know we existed!
