Something a little different today... and not what I thought I'd write about here, but it's a message that I'd like to share.
It's about the 'Insta-Perfect' world. The images that are the highlights, but not the whole story. The photos that are show our best side off, but forget the perfect imperfection of our everyday. So there are be gaps in our stories. Big gaps. The gaps that may well be the moments you want to remember in the future.
The rainy days when we put waterproofs over their onesies, and pop to the alleyway near our house where the wheelie bins live, because the best puddles are there. The not-so-wooden toys that I put aside to take to the charity shop, but they are constantly re-discovered and enjoyed all over again. The perfect toddler sized hand-me-down Peppa Pig cups that the girls still love are very faded now and starting to look too small. These things are seemingly not worthy of capturing. But there's something real about them that I love.
Don’t get me wrong - I adore the wonderful fuzzy warm photos of everyone all together in a big messy pile of love and giggles, I’m just as excited to take an Insta-worthy image, but I'd love to capture your ordinary too. And I’m willing to bet that some of those very ordinary moments may well end up being among your favourites when you look back in years to come 😍
Drop me a line if you’d like to document some of your real moments in a Treasured Memories session, or if you’d like me to join you for a morning or afternoon!
