Another Year Gone

December 23, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

     It's no secret, October through December is the photographer's busiest time of year: Period. Think of it as our tax season. Right now my photographer friends and I are all breathing a collective sigh as we enjoy a well-earned break over the Holidays. I know it won't last long, at least for me, as I had a nice crop of newborns in the spring of 2015 which means a they'll be returning for One Year sessions starting in mid-January. 

     Those are the saddest sessions for me because in the first year I often see children every three months. After their first birthday, I typically only see them once a year (sometimes every 6 months if I am lucky- thank you to those mommas!) The kids grow up so fast and they change so much between sessions. Yesterday's toddler is tomorrow's preschooler. 

     So, it'll be a bittersweet spring. I'll love seeing them all cap their first year on earth, their first year giving their momma's and daddy's all the love a child can bring, but I'll also be seeing them less. All my little 'babies' as I refer to them when I'm talking about my clients, will become my 'kids'. I'm thinking of them tonight because my own little 'babies' are 4 and 6; almost 5 and 7. Their first years are long behind them. But they still cuddle pretty well, and they still let their momma take corny pictures at Christmas, so I cannot help but love them as much as 'kids' as I did when they were 'babies'.

     I hope everyone out there is enjoying their holidays with their little ones, (or big ones!) no matter how you celebrate. Take those pictures in front of the tree; the kids with the 'BIGGEST SNOWMAN EVER, MOM'; or even just a selfie on the couch with them. Enjoy this time and know that I look forward to seeing each and every one of them in from of my camera this year.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
