What a beautiful tangled mess family life is.
I love it all. The craziness, the ordinariness, the love, the fun, the hard work and the many rewards that make up your everyday life.
Most often, it all seems quite ordinary. Days go by and it can seem like you haven’t done anything special at all.

A lifestyle session is a little glimpse into the daily life of your family. This is the real stuff that you share every day. These are the moments that matter. And these are the details that will change before you know it, replaced by new memories and details.
The images tell a story that is all about you. At this time in your lives.

How good is it to be on holidays?!
Especially in summer, with lazy days stretching out broken up by a swim or a walk along the beach. Sunsets. An afternoon snooze if you’re lucky.

Therefore, he said, the only appropriate state of the mind is surprise.
The only appropriate state of the heart is joy.
The sky you see now, you have never seen before.
The perfect moment is now. Be glad of it.”
