Being professional photographers, it is understandable that people thought we have done quite a lot of family photo sessions. We’re kind of the opposite. Yes, we do have many random snapshots here and there, but we’ve never fulfilled that desire of ours to have one family photo every year ever since our first child was born.
Jamie is 8 and Ryan is 5. I think the word that best describes how we feel right now is “already?!” It’s crazy fast. Time does flee. We feel we’ve missed many chances to document the moments and changes, the process of growth itself.
This is the first time that we’ve had a family portraiture done. It’s something that we don’t want to miss when our friend, one of my all time favourite photographer, came to town. In the business of storytelling, I am a strong advocate of memories making. Thus, selection of photographers, comes in full knowledge that we want it to portray who we are in order to simply tell who we are and our kids in the years to come.
