When our little Zoey was born just 9 short weeks ago, we planned out the perfect hospital photoshoot. We didn’t want to miss a single fleeting moment of her entrance into this world. The comments came pouring in:
“She’ll be blind before she’s 5 because of all the camera flashes.”
“If any kid will know how to smile it will be her.”
“There won’t be a more photographed child in this world—no, not even Brangelina’s kids!”
And let’s face it…a kid with two photographers for parents!? They’re right, she didn’t stand a chance.
But something happened…
I guess we’ll call that something “life.” Much like the gardener who never tends to her own garden or the carpenter who has a laundry list of his own projects that he never gets to, do you think we ever consider getting out the camera while we’re home?
Definitely not nearly as much as we should.
As I mentioned earlier, Zoey was born 9 weeks ago. That’s twice the lifespan of a fly (we’ll wait here while you google it). It’s unbelievable how much she has changed in such a short time, and we don’t have a whole lot to show for it.
P&W Photography‘s slogan is and has always been, “Capturing Your Moments for a Lifetime” and we can’t stress that enough. A moment passes by so quickly and then it’s gone—lost forever—unless, of course, you are able to capture and immortalize it.
It’s almost 2014 and everyone is busy thinking of New Year’s resolutions. Here’s one: Take pictures! Get out your camera, get out your phone. Snap away. Call your local photographer and schedule a session. Or two. Don’t wait. Photographers book up well in advance—call now. And here’s something else that people forget: Print your pictures! We’re becoming more and more digital in every way imaginable, but don’t let your pictures rot on your phone or computer. Print them. Frame them. Love them. You won’t be sorry.
We’ll be doing exactly that.
A moment captured on an 8 megapixel camera phone is better than a moment lost forever. However, we will certainly be planning many more photo sessions to ensure we have high quality prints for display in our home and studio, as well to share with our family and friends. Much like Zoey’s two month session we shot this afternoon:
