As soon as we had our first baby, strangers in the grocery store felt the need to come up and tell me how lucky we were, that “it all goes by so fast.. try to enjoy it!” At the time I thought they must be crazy. Sleepless nights and breastfeeding woes gave way to legos all over my floor and the tantrum adventures of “the terrible two’s.”
Sitting on the other side of thirteen years with that first baby of ours (and the two brothers who joined him later), I can officially say they were right. The days may be slow but the years have gone by so fast. Most of my work as a visual storyteller is based on empathy. I try and think about the images I wish I had, the moments I know I’ve forgotten, and then I capture them for you. It all does go by so fast. My deepest hope is that these moments help you really enjoy it.
Take a breath, have a look around, and write me to say hello.
I’d love to spend a morning with you.
