This is the story of my family.  Of how I longed to capture my children just as they are.  The story of how my oldest loves to give her little sister "airplane" rides and how my youngest will just squeal with delight.

Laughter

The story of how I love to chase and tickle my youngest — how her laughter will ring out from behind her "paci".  I adore these little moments shared between us. They will too soon be a thing of the past.  It's so important that I capture these details.

Play

The story of how we make homemade tents in the dining room and play under them for hours. Can you hear the song they are singing?

Bonding

The story of the best dad I know — the dad who will play for hours with our son.  The competitive screams that fill our home during their games will forever be a memory I keep.

This is the story of my family.  Of how I am capturing my children just as they are.  I urge you to grab that camera and tell the story of your family.  The pictures don't have to be perfect.  They just have to tell the story of your family...of who you are.  The moments you never want to forget — the little treasures hidden in the everyday.
